REFERENCE: 553342-EPP-1-2014-1-FR-EPPKA1-JMD-MOB_COSITITLE: Colour in Science and Industry, COSIObjectiveThe master's degree Colour in Science and Industry (COSI) aims to train experts from an interdisciplinary perspective in sectors encompassing colour, spectral and digital imaging in applied science and in applications development and analysis. The objective is to educate students in advanced methodologies, applied models and practical applications with two goals: to enhance the employability and improve career prospects of graduates on one hand and to meet the needs of the industry on the other hand.Course durationTwo years (120 ECTS credits).Brief descriptionCOSI involves four EU HEIs as full partners: University Jean Monnet (UJM – France), University of Granada (UGR- Spain), University of Eastern Finland (UEF–Finland), Gjøvik University College (GUC–Norway); five associated industrial partners; four HEIs in Asia as associated academic partners; and ten supporting partners including companies and other organisations.Starting from the 1st semester’s comprehensive coverage of the prerequisites in the fields of photonics and optics, applied colour science, digital imaging and scientific programming at UJM, the students will proceed to more in-depth studies in the 2nd semester at UGR, including advanced colourimetry and human vision and cognition. In the 3rd semester the students will be able to select between two different specialization areas at either GUC or UEF. Aligned with the institutions’ focus areas and competences, the offered specializations include spectral technologies for industrial or applied research purposes at UEF and applied colour imaging at GUC. In the 4th semester, the students will fully devote themselves to their master's thesis, which will be carried out in a company or in an applied research centre. Career prospectsInformation and Communication Technologies, Health & Life Science, and Science & Technology sectors are in full growth. The needs in fields covered by COSI are increasingly important in these sectors, particularly in Quality Control of Manufactured Products, Medical and Biomedical Imaging, and Spectral Systems Design. COSI is highly relevant to a wide range of sectors where the continued evolution of R&D fields requires adapted and extremely specialized courses with a strong focus on industrial applications and application study cases. Therefore COSI students have the opportunity to receive an education very well adapted to their background, interests, and future career plans and the opportunity to apply for positions requiring agile and internationally-minded professionals with high soft skills.An international experienceDuring the first COSI call for application and first intake students from 39 different nationalities applied to the programme. The whole curriculum is taught in English. Special attention has been given to allow students to get the most of their international experience: host-country language courses, learning design fostering extended intercultural experiences and networking services constitute a few examples. COSI students study in two or three European universities in France, Spain and Norway or Finland and receive lessons from local and international guest lecturers. Students receive further training in one of the twelve European and Asian countries (and counting) where COSI partners’ research centres and companies are located.DiplomaAt the end of the programme, graduates will be delivered multiple national diplomas from the EU hosting institutions.Website
