A mobility scheme ensures that, in addition to high specialization and access to state of the art technologies, students will do a common core curriculum of studies in different higher education institutions within the ASC consortium.The European ASC Master's Course is jointly operated by the following universities (the ASC consortium):
Students completing this European master’s degree with a thesis will be better prepared for European R and D careers in instrument manufactures, spectroscopic laboratories, analytical enterprises or administrative organizations.
79% of ASC alumni engage in a PhD programme.
The first semester is dedicated to providing all candidates with a common platform in advanced spectroscopic methods, including magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy and diffraction techniques.
In the second and third semesters, more specialised instruction is provided with applications in molecular synthesis, biology, nanotechnology, modelling, “green chemistry”, medicine, and new energy sources.
The Master‘s thesis will be strongly encouraged to be based on a collaborative project between two of the partner institutions, thus adding an even more challenging European dimension to the programme.
