Erasmus Mundus Master Course - Sustainable Transportation and Electrical Power Systems (EMMC STEPS)
- Fully Funded
- 31 December 2016
(EMMC STEPS) offers a highly specialized education in Electrical Engineering, focusing on two areas of the highest technological content and professional requirements in the energy sector. The EMMC STEPS is promoted by a partnership led by the University of Oviedo (ES), together with the University of Nottingham (UK), the University of Rome (IT) and the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (PT).
Graduates successfully completing the EMMC STEPS academic programme will be awarded with a Joint Master Degree in Sustainable Transportation and Electrical Power Systems (STEPS) by all the Consortium universities, fully recognized in the four partner countries.
The course is structured in 2 academic years, with four 30 ECTS semesters for a total 120 ECTS workload. Students can build their own curriculum based on their previous background and their professional interest, although it offers 2 recommended study tracks: Sustainable Transportation (ST) and Electrical Power Systems (EPS). The approach and content of the Master respond to main challenges faced by the energy sector:
To master new energy sources and their implications to the power systems To reduce CO2 emissions by increasing energy efficiency and the share of clean energies To gradually incorporate electrical transportation as an alternative to vehicles using combustion engines.
The concession of the grant will be subjected to the following some limitations:
- Have already obtained a first higher education degree.
- Exclusively full-time enrolment in one of the course editions.
- Not be awarded with other EU grants for the same joint course over the length of the course concerned.
- No more than three of the students with the same nationality.
The EMMC STEPS will select some students to be awarded with individual Erasmus Mundus scholarships according to the Student selection criteria approved by the EACEA. Two categories are established: Partner Country students and Programme Country students. Contribution to travel and installation costs 1000 EUR per year per scholarship holder resident of a Programme Country for travel costs. 2000 EUR per year for travel costs + 1000 EUR for installation costs for scholarship holder resident of a Partner Country whose location is situated at less than 4.000 km from the EMMC coordinating HEI. 3000 EUR per year for travel costs + 1000 EUR for installation costs for scholarship holder resident of a Partner Country whose location is situated at 4000 km or more from the EMMC coordinating HEI. A contribution to installation costs is offered only to students residents of a Partner Country (1000 € for the entire course). It is an incentive to help covering the additional costs related to the issuing of visas, residence permits, etc. as well as temporary accommodation needs upon arrival in the first Programme hosting HEI. Contribution to subsistence costs (for both programme and partner country scholarship holders) 1000 EUR per month for the entire duration of the EMMC study programme (24 months maximum).
