EMMC Mechatronic Engineering
Start date: Aug 1, 2015, End date: Jul 31, 2020 PROJECT  FINISHED 

REFERENCE: 564467-EPP-1-2015-1-ES-EPPKA1-JMD-MOB_EU4MTITLE: Joint Master's Degree in Mechatronic Engineering, EU4MObjectiveThe aim of the Master's Degree in Mechatronic Engineering (EU4M) is to familiarize students and invited scholars with the methods, the development and the application of mechatronics in different fields, including automotive engineering, aerospace, mobile communication systems, MEMS and adaptive systems in optics, bionics and robotics.Course durationTwo years (120 ECTS credits).Brief descriptionThe EU4M EMJMD is promoted by a well-integrated partnership fully supported by five partner Universities (the University of Oviedo, Spain, the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Germany, the National Engineering Institute in Mechanics and Microtechniques, France, the Ivanovo State Power Engineering University, Russian Federation, and the Nile University, Egypt), and by other 11 educative and 23 non-educative associated partners located in France, Germany, Spain, Egypt, Russia, USA, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Colombia, Brazil and Cuba. The EU4M EMJMD builds on the five years of experience gathered with the EU Master in Mechatronic and Micro-Mechatronic Systems.Three of the degree awarding institutions (UNIOVI, HSKA and NU) offer the same academic programme in three different languages (Spanish, German and English) in order to give the students the same preparation and different language options. On their second year, students move to one or two of the other partner or associate institutions in order to complete the required mobility periods.Career prospectsThis master's course responds to the substantial increase in demand for engineers in industry all over the world. The global market is in need of engineers who use new tools and technologies to develop new products within short time under the consideration of both customers' requirements and the sustainable use of natural resources and the natural environment. The consortium partners are organized as global players and accompany their students for two years in their studies and life, both in European and non-European universities, following the same objectives wherever they stay. The subsequent qualifications and education objectives of this master's course are fundamental and constitute the elements of our higher education for mechatronics engineers who will be able to work as specialists, systems managers or coordinators in interdisciplinary and international project teams in research and/or industry.An international experienceThe master students study at two of the five partner universities of Germany, France, Spain, the Russian Federation and Egypt. The students can also spend part of their studies at a non-European associated partner university. Lectures are given in the local languages: French, German, Spanish and English (in Egypt and Russia). Besides earning a world-class qualification, students have the opportunity to learn new languages and improve their intercultural skills.DiplomaAll partners fully recognize the study periods carried out in any of the other partner universities. Students spending a study period equivalent to at least 30 ECTS credits are awarded a master's degree recognized according to the national legislation. As a result, students completing the EU4M academic itinerary receive at least a degree by the university where they have spent the first year of study and a second one by the university where they have spent the second period of study for their specialization. The consortium is currently working in order to award a Joint Master Degree in Mechatronics Engineering by the five universities.Website
