Program Description:

The cornerstones of this programme are mechanical design and energy conversion. The former starts with an idea that is shaped in a graphical design and results in a finished product through choice of materials, simulation and production technique. Energy conversion is aimed at all aspects of energy efficiency in this process and ranges from electrical controls and automation to thermal power plants, combustion engines, climatisation, etc. Intelligent Manufacturing focus: The issues covered in this focus include the latest production techniques; the way production systems operate; and the intrinsic relationship between production and other business processes, especially the design process. At the core of this focus are the possibilities that computer-based systems offer in this context. Moreover, you learn to factor in the tension between technology, economics, and the environment and ergonomics. Intelligent Mechanics focus: The Intelligent Mechanics focus relates to designing, developing and optimizing automated mechanical machines. Based on a strong background in electricity and mechanics, you delve more deeply into aspects like advanced design methods, electronic operations, controls, measures and drives, data communication and visualization methods. Intelligent Mobility focus: Intelligent Mobility deals with the sustainable, applying smart solutions. Its application area is very broad, but one example would be electric or hybrid cars fitted with intelligent recharging systems. Another would be vehicles that can warn each other about accidents or traffic jams. Intelligent Mobility also has to do with choosing materials or production methods that have the smallest ecological impact possible, and with optimally gearing transportation systems to one another. In essence, engineers find intelligent solutions to technological problems. 5E-engineers however are more than experts in technology. They have distinct entrepreneurial skills and are capable of coaching both themselves and others. 5E-engineers are aware of their place in the world and the impact they have on nature and culture. Finally, they know how to integrate everything and gain a higher insight. No traditional programme can achieve this. The 5E engineering curriculum at Group T Campus incorporates collaboration in cross-professional tasks in an environment characterized by diversity and a plurality of world visions. The 5 Es: Engineering, Enterprising, Educating, Ensembling, and Environmenting. At Campus Group T, you can follow your master's in a one-year or a two-year formula. The two-year formula adds 60 ECTS and 2 semesters to the standard one-year formula. The extra ECTS are made up by an elaborate learning experience in and with a company, with an innovative engineering challenge as the central assignment. It is set in a team, has a distinct international dimension, and usually requires a multidisciplinary approach. Entrepreneurs and students alike are encouraged to innovate, to transfer knowledge and to grow. It is a unique cross-fertilization between company and university college. This is an initial master's programme. You can follow it on a half-time or full-time basis. An increased tuition fee of 6000 EUR is not applicable for students who come from countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA).
