'MSc in Smart Cities and Communities' to be funded by ERASMUS+ Key Action 1-EMJMDs programme

The International Hellenic University announces that the School of Science and Technology has been successful with a proposal for 3.069.000 euros funding by ERASMUS+ Key Action 1 – Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) programme, titled: “MSc in Smart Cities and Communities” in collaboration with Universite de Mons, Heriot-Watt University and Universidad del Pais Vasco. The Schools’ involvement was coordinated by Assistant Professor C. Tjortjis.Smart Cities

The programme is structured and designed to improve the quality and relevance of higher education via the cooperation of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the labour market and to support activities that help attune curricula to current demands of the market, while as a second step to offer employability and transversal skills including entrepreneurship and innovation. Among its objectives, the programme will develop active cooperation between HEIs and non-academic partners: enterprises, professional organisations, social partners, local and/or regional bodies, etc.

In addition, the programme aims at giving opportunities to students for new skills and state-of-the-art knowledge at regional and transnational level and fostering innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, employability, knowledge exchange and multidisciplinary learning.

The first intake of students is planned for 2018-19. Several full scholarships will be available. Prospective students who wish to study the exciting emerging field of Smart Cities can consider the option of doing part of their master in Spain, Greece, Belgium or the U.K. and are encouraged to watch this space.

Further information on the programme will be provided soon.

Applications are open for our Master's programmes for the academic year 2017-18:
