EUCERMAT Master programme

Distance learning for blended mobility

Blended mobility is a mix between physical mobility, abroad, and virtual mobility, thanks to on line courses. This modern way of teaching permits students both to have access to new courses, unavailable in their own universities, and to benefit from an international experience, thanks to the physical mobility.

Following this principal, EUCERMAT wants to give to master students the opportunity to attend blended mobility modules including online courses (e-learning) supplemented by laboratory practical work, and a 3 to 6 months traineeship abroad in a renowned company, in connection with university research activities. To reach this objective, five European universities and around fifteen industries work together offering a meaningful and unique learning experience for students through high level international training courses in the field of the science of ceramic materials and processing.

The EUCERMAT students  receive 15h of theoretical e-learning courses (hosted by a Moodle platform) and 15h of practical courses given in the referent university and held in english, to validate the corresponding 3 ECTS. The e-learning courses are hosted by a Moodle platform, and a Moodle training session is organized each year during the Integration Week.
