The international master on “Control for Green Mechatronics” (GREEM), within the “Robotics and Control” mention of the French Ministry of Education, promotes a high-quality educational offer in the area of design and control of mechatronic systems with a particular focus on two points: their functional performances and their energetic efficiency. The consideration of the energy efficiency makes the GREEM international master very singular and very innovative and makes it answer a real actual societal matter which is the effect of technological devices to the ecology. After graduation, the students will have mastered the area of green mechatronics where they will be able to design new or re-design existing mechatronic systems, to model and simulate them, to calculate controllers for their automation and their performances improvement, and to setup networks of mechatronic systems, all together with consideration of the energy efficiency. Furthermore, international experience possibility is offered to the students: exchanges with partner universities at the international level are possible with eventual dual-degree, internships at the international level are encouraged, a great part of the courses are given in English, and French language and culture courses are given for non-francophone students. 

Program structure

The master program lasts two years and includes a total of 120 ECTS. The two years are split into four semesters (S7, S8, S9 and S10) which include several features such as: two industrial certifications (Schneider and Siemens), in excess of 50% of the courses given in English, French course offered to non-francophone students, 3-days labs in another city (in Poligny which is a small and original city of the Jura department where winery is also well known), seminars by researchers, research labs visiting, students project in robotics for national competition, possibility of international exchange ...

The global content is given below.

After the GREEM master program

The career prospects of the students are very high because mechatronic systems are found and increasingly developed in a very wide range of applications. The fact that today’s problematic, like energy consumption in technological devices, is particularly tackled in this master will make the graduated students very attractive to industry at the international level. Furthermore, high skills and specialized students will have been educated making them the best candidates for research and PhD programs in the fields of mechatronics at large, of control, of robotics...

Site of training

The site of training is Besançon, a French old city that combines old stones buildings, French culture, various activities from sports to cultural, and students life. Approximately 10% of the population are students or interns in Besançon city and in its agglomeration. The center of applied languages (CLA, http://cla.univ-fcomte.fr/) which is a part of the university (UFC/UBFC) is one of the most important center for learning languages in France and hosts approximately 4000 interns per year coming from various countries for some days or for several months. Public transportation is very practical and the old-city is doable by walks.

Entry requirements (Students profiles)

The applicant should have a level of English and a background on “control systems” following the UFC/UBFC criterias. Additionally to these, the motivations and the professional project of the applicant are also examined carefully.

Mechatronics is an exciting, growing field that combines mechanical, electronic and control systems to create a complete device. It mostly relates to the mechanical systems that perform relatively fast and precise motions and therefore require sophisticated electronic devices and control algorithms. This hands-on course will help you develop the multidisciplinary knowledge that the fast-moving industrial, commercial and domestic sectors demand of their technical professionals.

The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

Key features
-Academic teaching is complemented by presentations from industry experts and by industrial trips, such as the UK annual NI Days conference, held in London.
-You will enjoy group assignments, supporting each other's learning and have opportunities to develop your ability to work in teams. You will also benefit from an industry-relevant final project. The presentation, which is part of the final project, will prepare you for your job interview.

What will you study?

Although mechatronics may be perceived in combination with robotics, as robots are indeed fast and precise mechanical systems, it also has wider applications, such as in hard-disk drives for computers, tracking cameras for surveillance applications, intelligent actuators in automotive systems and many other areas including devices used in the field of healthcare and rehabilitation, like intelligent prosthetic devices.

The hands-on approach on the course, using our state-of-the art multidisciplinary laboratories with equipment from National Instruments, Freescale, Agilent Technology and many more, adds value to this postgraduate degree. The course dovetails with research activities of the teaching staff, implementing the latest advances in our research. Utilising applied research, you have the opportunity to do your own research within an individual industry-relevant 'capstone' project. This includes preparation of a scientific paper, giving an opportunity for that first breakthrough into publishing your work.
