Centrale Nantes has once again been selected by the European Commission to coordinate a very selective Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree - European Master in Dynamics of renewables-based power systems (DREAM).

DREAM has been accredited for a six-year period, with the first intake of students in September 2022. It has been jointly designed, and is implemented and fully supported, by 4 major European partners acting as a consortium:
  • Centrale Nantes – (ECN) France
  • Universitatea Politehnica din Bucuresti (UPB), Romania
  • Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain
  • Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (HTW), Germany

The DREAM Consortium also benefits from associated partners that bring additional academic and industrial perspectives:

  • Academic associated partners: Keio University, Japan | Inha University, South Korea | Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China | National Institute of Technology, India | Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India | Universidad de los Andes, Colombia | University of Hawaii, United States | Alexandria University, Egypt | Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Spain | Warsaw University of Technology, Poland
  • Industrial associated partners: RTE-Réseau de Transport d’Electricité, France | Opal-RT Europe SAS, France | Knick Elektronische Messgeräte GmbH & Co.KG, Germany Enerkite GMBH, Germany | Pepperl+ Fuchs GMBH, Germany | Siemens AG Power and Gas, Germany | Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, Germany | Green Power Monitor Sistemas de Monitorización, Spain | iGrid SL, Spain | Tractebel Engineering SA, Romania | Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule Zuerich, Switzerland

DREAM will offer very attractive Erasmus Mundus scholarships that can cover up to 100% of the tuition fees and living expenses. Centrale Nantes is looking forward to welcoming the first intake of students in September 2022.


The programme prepares students to tackle the current and future challenges of smart power systems with a different approach. Core knowledge from the fields of Power Systems, Smart Grids, Renewable Generation, Automatic Control and Power Electronics is thus combined to give to the students the opportunity to acquire a global “system view” of the dynamics of next-generation power systems. All course units, naturally taught in English, are already mutually recognized by the consortium partners. Mandatory courses across the first 3 semesters will cover all areas of expertise in smart power systems. Centrale Nantes has once again been recognised for its expertise with the coordination of a third Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's Degree, newly selected by the European Commission. This new programme, which responds to the environmental and societal challenges of tomorrow, reflects Centrale Nantes' commitment to innovation.

Five Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees on offer at Centrale Nantes:

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programmes are taught by an international consortium of higher education institutions. The addition of DREAM brings our offering to a very enviable five EMJMD programmes, three of which are coordinated by Centrale Nantes.
