The FRP++ is a European Master Course in Advanced Structural Analysis and Design using Composite Materials. It will have the second edition in 2023/2024 as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Course.
The FRP++ offers an advanced integrated educational programme covering the key issues of the Composites industry with a particular focus on i) materials and manufacturing processes, ii) mechanics and modelling, iii) analysis and design, iv) inspection, diagnosis, repair and strengthening, and v) sustainability and life cycle analysis. The Master combines the diverse expertise of leading European Higher Education Institutions in the related fields to offer an excellent education proposal oriented to a multidisciplinary understanding of structural Composites through the involvement of specialists from complementary fields (engineers, materials science and others).
The FRP++ has a duration of one academic year (60 ETCS), leading to the awarding of a double master’s degree. It is held on a rotating basis among partners. Students carry out the entire coursework in one location and the dissertation in another location. The language of instruction and examinations is English.
Through an excellent education, students will gain cutting-edge knowledge on structural Composites in a research-driven environment, maintaining close collaboration with industry and an important focus on solving practical problems, to compete in a highly demanding market, such as construction, aerospace and aeronautics, automotive, wind energy, among others, where Composites are fundamental. The FRP++ combines the latest research advances with the development of activities related to professional practice.
