The European Masters programme in Embedded Computing Systems (EMECS) is a two-years Erasmus Mundus Master's course where each of the two academic years is spent at a different EMECS partner university. The partner universities of our consortium are Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, University of Southampton, and Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
Our partner universities are leading European research institutions in this field, offering excellent teaching quality and a broad spectrum of study modules to choose from. Additionally, the student mobility between partner universities provides a rich international experience that is vital in a globalized economy.
