Admission criteria

To be eligible for the JMD EU4M programme, applicant must fulfil these minimal requirements:

  • Be holder of a bachelor degree or an equivalent university degree (180 ECTS credits) from one of the following subject areas: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Automotive/Aerospace, Sensor Technologies or a related scientific engineering subject.
  • A good academic background, assessed on the basis of complete grade lists of the previous study programme and professional background (desirable).
  • High language skills in at least one of the following languages: German, Spanish, French and English. The EU4M Programme is taught using local languages, which means that students need to be fluent in those languages in order to follow the course.
    • HSKA: German
    • UNIOVI: Spanish
    • ENSMM: French
    • ISPU, NU: English


The Joint Master Degree in Mechatronic Engineering is one of the very few Erasmus Mundus Master Courses that is not taught in English. Pursuing international students integration in the European way of life and aiming to contribute to multilingualism (defined as one of the cornerstones of the European project), lectures are always taught in the local language used at each EU institution. Thus, prospective EU4M students must be able to communicate in at least two of the languages used in the Programme.

At the moment of application, students must have at least a B1 level of the teaching language used in the country of their first study year; an A1 level of the teaching language used in the second country is also recommended.

Additionally, survival Russian and basic Arabic is required for students coming to ISPU and Nile respectively. Although lectures will be taught in English in these institutions, everyday life out of their premises is likely to use the aforementioned languages.
