The European Union is offering Scholarships for the Erasmus Mundus Master in Chemical NanoEngineering programme in 2021/22 session.
The CNE program is a joint master program in Chemical Nanoengineering offered by three European universities:
Chemistry for Nanoengineering is an innovative field of science and technology which is developing very fast. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry shows the importance of the research in this area. It has shown that engineering of the Nanomachines is not any more a science-fiction; it is just a beginning of new engineering specialty where the Nano-systems can be numerically designed and chemically synthesized. These new technologies will create a large demand for specialists in this field.
All courses are taught in English, so proficiency in English is required. Two of the Partners are engineering Universities (PL and IT), which is important for the program goals towards excellence in nano-engineering innovation. The third partner (FR) has a strong chemical nano-science profile which will allow them to teach their students the chemical fundamentals during the first semester in Marseille. The complementarity among the three partners plays a key role incoherence of the joint program:
The first year of studies (Marseille, then Wroclaw) is common for all students. The First semester of the second year (Rome) allows the students to choose between two options: experimental one and numerical one.
The Master thesis research project (30 ects, Marseille, Wroclaw, Rome or one of the Partner Institution) is intended to bring the student in close contact with a multinational and multidisciplinary research environment of a research institute in academia or in industry. The student can choose among the list of proposed relevant research project and work in close collaboration with other researchers. The research project is finalized with a public presentation of a Master’s Thesis in Marseille in September. The Master Thesis project is evaluated by an external international jury.
The amount of the scholarships (monthly allowance + contribution to Travel and Installation) given to the selected students differ from the country of origin of the students.
There are two categories of students:
Contribution to subsistence costs
Monthly allowance for subsistence costs given to the awarded students during the two-years Master program is: 1000 €/month.
Contribution to the travel and installation costs
The contribution to Travel and Installation costs given to the awarded students is:
