Erasmus + Joint Master in Economics and Management of Network Industries (EMIN)
"To me the best part of the EMIN program was the close relationship each university has with industry. At TU Delft I was able to take part of an electric vehicle start-up due to the vast resources and student clubs available. At Comillas, this was even more pronounced as we regularly had people from industry giving lectures which allowed for extra-academic discussions and proved that what we were learning was actually in use. Furthermore the professors involved with this program are among the top in their fields with several working at MIT as well as other top research institutions which is always nice to see: they know what they're talking about."
-Andrew Thompson (USA) EMIN 2014
The EMIN Master
The growth of network industries (electricity, natural gas, water, telecommunications, etc.) across the world creates a need for skilled professionals, capable of understanding these processes and participating actively in their management and regulation.
The EMIN Master offers the opportunity to become a qualified professional by learning the relevant engineering, economics, policy and management principles of network industries, with a special non-exclusive focus in the energy and electric power sectors.
EMIN is a joint program of 120 ECTS (two years) delivered by some of the most prestigious universities in Europe: Comillas University in Madrid (Spain), the Technical University of Delft (Netherlands), and the University Paris-Sud 11 (France).
Students on interactive course.
EMIN has added value:
• partners’ joint expertise
• relevance of the subjects addressed
• participation of supporting industries and institutions.
EMIN features the Erasmus + (formerly called Erasmus Mundus) excellence label awarded by the European Commission, and there is a number scholarships that cover both tuition fees and allowances for student’s day-to-day and travel support.
A graduate student from UK would receive a scholarship of:
• 10 000 Euro per academic year (see details on the EMIN web page).
• 3 000 additional Euros would be awarded if there is a mobility to a non-EU EMIN partner for developing a Master’s Thesis.
During the fourth semester, students will be able to undertake a professional internship and carry out their Master’s Thesis in one of the many partner companies of EMIN, featuring some of the top industry players in the world. Alternatively, they may enjoy a research stay in one of EMIN academic partners in Europe (KU Leuven, Florence School of Regulation), USA (Johns Hopkins University, U. Texas at Austin, Berkeley Lab), Brazil (U. Federal de Rio de Janeiro), and China (Harbin Institute of Technology)
