Master sub-programme: Membrane materials and process engineering

Sub-programme "Membrane Materials and Membrane Engineering" is a Czech version of the European programme "Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering" EM3E. This programme offers an advanced education programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between material science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields.

It involves 6 High Education Institutions of 5 European countries: University of Twente (Netherlands), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (Czech Republic), Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France) and Université Montpellier 2 (France, coordinating organisation). Associated partners are the Universitat della Calabria (Italy), the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) and the Université Hassan II of Mohammedia (Morocco). The pedagogical project of Master comes from the closely collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro (EU-FP7).

Erasmus Mundus is an educational programme launched by the European Commission to promote the cooperation and mobility of higher education. It is a unique opportunity to offer attractive scholarships to non-European and European students by placing emphasis on the diversity of the students’ origin.
