Joint Master's Programmes

Centrale Nantes is currently involved in four Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees, a true guarantee of academic excellence. An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD), is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions. EMJMDs award EU-funded scholarships to the best student candidates applying under annual selection rounds.

In addition to our EMJMDs, a further three joint Master programmes are delivered jointly with partner institutions. Two of these programmes are former Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees - in Advanced Robotics and in Computational Mechanics - that have been continued under double degree agreements with the partner institutions. The third is new for 2021/22 - the EIT Manufacturing Master School.

EMARO + Joint Master Programme in Advanced Robotics

The EMARO (European Master on Advanced Robotics) programme welcomed its first students in 2008, under the Erasmus Mundus European Programme of Excellence label. The programme was extended in 2014 as the Erasmus+ (EMARO+) programme. As the European funding cycle of EMARO+ recently came to an end, three of the partner institutions decided to maintain this project and the community around it by concluding an EMARO+ Double Degree agreement. Students can thus apply for a double degree - studying at two of the three consortium partner institutions: Centrale Nantes, University of Genoa, Warsaw University of Technology.

Joint Master Programme in Computational Mechanics

The Master's programme in Computational Mechanics welcomed its first students in 2007, under the Erasmus Mundus label of excellence. The progamme was extended in 2014 for a further 5 years under the same terms. The last intake of students having graduated in 2019, the Master's degree no longer receives European funding. Centrale Nantes and the Universitat Politecnicà de Catalunya (UPC) signed a double-degree agreement in 2020 to enable the programme to continue. This means that students who wish to pursue a double degree can complete one year in France and one year in Spain.

EIT Manufacturing Master School - New for 2021/2022

Four different programmes are on offer through the EIT-M Master School at a consortium of European universities, one of which is available at Centrale Nantes: Platforms for digitalized value networks. The consortium offering this programme comprises: the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland, Politecnico di Milano, Centrale Nantes and University College Dublin. Students move from their entry university at the end of the first year to their exit university in a different country for the second year. The language of instruction throughout is English. Graduates of the EIT-M programme are awarded two Master degrees - one from each university.
