ASC - Advanced Spectroscopy In Chemistry

4 - Quality education; Teaching Projects; 2015; 2016; 2017; 2018; 2019; 2020

The ASC network aims at preparing students to become experts and develop international skills towards professional industrial careers in spectroscopic characterization of matter and/or doctoral studies.

The ASC program has reached a high level of harmonization, with a single Master program scheme applicable at each partner institution and thus yielding to a better integration into the European scheme.

All successful students receive a multiple degree from the institutions where they attended courses.

This ASC master program will: ⚬guarantee quality (all partners have official accredited Masters in chemistry) ⚬Allow students access to techniques not available locally (mutualisation of the equipment) ⚬provide a sound background in Advanced Spectroscopy, both in experimental techniques and in scientific knowledge; ⚬promote students’ mobility within a network of research laboratories spread amongst countries from a large area of Europe in an environment where they will be well looked after and acquire transferable skills in a multicultural environment. ⚬prepare students to become experts in far reaching experimental techniques in Spectroscopy. ⚬help and prepare students to develop skills to follow future doctoral studies, and/or towards professional activities.

The originality of this program is to allow students to choose their research master thesis in one highly specialized field according to their professional objectives. The high level of equipment available in the consortium is unique.

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. ASC graduates are at least bilingual and have been studying and working for 2 years in a multicultural environment. They are well prepared for European or international careers.
