Designing an Erasmus Mundus Master on Digital and Sustainable Manufacturing

This EU funded project (ERASMUS-EDU-2022-EMJM-DESIGN) “Designing an Erasmus Mundus Master on Digital and Sustainable Manufacturing” (01082529/Design4SusMan) aims to develop a 2-year joint MSc on Digital and Sustainable Manufacturing. Within this joint MSc, students will be trained in the fields of mechanical, manufacturing & industrial engineering and management. Furthermore, their intercultural competencies will be fostered. This project also targets the acquisition of further necessary competencies, in order to prepare students to address major challenges that EU is currently facing. These encompass especially the megatrends of digitalisation in manufacturing companies as well as the social/ethical and climate/environmental sustainability challenges that are central in current and future EU policies. The project consortium consists of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (IT), represented by Prof. Guido Orzes and Prof. Renato Vidoni (Course Director Master in Industrial Mechanical Engineering), Graz University of Technology (AUT), represented by Prof. Bernd Markus Zunk (Dean for Studies of the Master Programme Production Science and Management), Polytechnic of Porto / School of Engineering (PT), represented by Prof. Manuel Lopes (Coordinator of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of ISEP-IPP and Director of the MSc in Engineering and Industrial Management) as well as the Politehnica of Bucharest (ROM), represented by Prof. Cristian Mustata (Vice-Dean and Program manager for the Master in Sustainable Business Excellency and Leadership).
