About this program

European Master of Science in Radiation and its Effects on Microelectronics and Photonics Technologies (RADMEP)

This two-year Erasmus Mundus program provides a multidisciplinary and innovative program covering the interactions between Radiation and MicroElectronics and Photonics, two Key Enabling Technologies for the future of Europe.

The European Master in Radiation and its effects on MicroElectronics and Photonics Technologies (RADMEP) provides a multidisciplinary and innovative program covering the interactions between Radiation and MicroElectronics and Photonics, two Key Enabling Technologies for the future of Europe. RADMEP's objective is to educate students in those advanced technologies, providing methodologies and introducing practical applications for their implementation in a variety of natural or man-made radiation-rich environments. RADMEP has two goals: first to improve the career prospects of its students and second to respond to the needs of the industry, agencies and society. Thanks to this Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree, students will develop useful professional and soft skills in the rich European cultural context.

All RADMEP students will start their studies in semester 1 at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland), before moving to KU Leuven Geel Campus (Belgium) in semester 2. They will obtain fundamental knowledge and experience in MicroElectronics and Photonics and their behavior under irradiation.

Admission requirements

The admission policy is intended to ensure equal opportunity of access to higher education for qualified European and third country students. Your admission is based on the evaluation of a complete application file. All applications are evaluated by both KU Leuven Admissions Office and the relevant program director. Final admission decisions will made be at the discretion of the Faculty.

  • Academic background: Applicants must possess a solid academic background in the general fields of physics, photonics, semi-conductor physics and microeletronics. They must hold a bachelor of science, preferably in the fields of microelectronics, photonics and physics.
  • GRE test results: in order to be considered for admission, applicants are required to submit their GRE score (at the moment, there is no minimum requirement for GRE scores). Students who obtained a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in one of the EEA countries, the UK, or Switzerland are exempted from providing GRE scores. However, submitting GRE scores might still be considered as an asset when applying.
  • Strong motivation: Submit a letter of motivation which clearly demonstrate your sound professional intentions and relevant experience.
  • Recommendations: Submit two recommendation letters to support the application.
  • English language proficiency: All applicants who have not obtained a previous diploma in a program taught in English in Australia, English-speaking Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America must submit a certificate proving their proficiency in English.
