Erasmus Mundus in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy


The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees ME3+ is offered to students around the world who have the highest potential for graduate studies.

To enter the programme, candidates must have either a Bachelor’s degree in Science or Engineering (180 ECTS) - or a recognised equivalent diploma from an accredited institution (minimum 3-year full time study, 180 ECTS) in a scientific or technical discipline - with specialization in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Energy Engineering or equivalent awarded with at least second class honours (or equivalent standard).  Other engineering curricula such as Electrical Engineering, Civil engineering, Environment Engineering are accepted with documented background in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics…

Considering the high number of applications that the programme receives, if a candidate has a different academic background, the chances of admission are extremely low.
