Master degree EMJMD STEPS
ERASMUS MUNDUS JOINT MASTER DEGREE IN SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION AND ELECTRICAL POWER SYSTEMS (EMJMD STEPS)
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Sustainable Transportation and Electrical Power Systems (EMJMD STEPS ) is an international program offered by a consortium of four universities: the University of Oviedo (Spain), The University of Nottingham (UK), the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (Portugal), and Sapienza University of Rome (Italy). It has earned the “Erasmus Mundus” label and scholarships are provided by the European Union.
The Master is designed to prepare highly qualified electrical engineers in two areas of high professional and social impact: Electric Transportation and Electrical Power Systems. A strong focus is placed on energy efficiency and sustainability.
The first curriculum – “Sustainable Transportation” - is aimed in power electronics and energy management in electric vehicles and other mobility applications.
Two further curricula are proposed in the Electrical Power Systems strand, in order to accommodate the large academic demand on that sector. The first one (Technologies for the More Electronic Grid) is oriented towards power electronics and their use in power systems applications. The second one (Design, Analysis and Operation for the More Efficient and Resilient Grid), is focused in design analysis and operation of power systems.
Students will receive a joint degree at the end of a mobility path involving a network of associated universities and companies that are leaders in the energy and transportation sectors.
The third curricula – “Electrical Power Systems” (Technologies for the More Electronic Grid), - aims instead to train professionals able to face with the necessary skills the complex challenges for electrical systems resulting from the growing penetration of generation distributed and smart grids, as well as the advent of the electricity market.
