Student Profile

Dr Pezhman Ghadimi, Programme Director

This European and intersectoral mobility postgraduate programme is strongly oriented towards innovation and entrepreneurship. The strong industry component is reinforced by industry projects, the Industrial Master thesis and a potential internship (self-secured). The objective of the Master School is to train future European leaders in manufacturing, combining digital and technical manufacturing skills to meet the needs of European SMEs and multinationals alike. Students will be delivered a double Master degree after spending one year in two of the seven universities which shaped this ambitious and prestigious training programme, along with an EIT Manufacturing certificate. UCD will welcome students participating in this programme next September 2023 for the first year of their Master's studies. The students will spend their second year at other partner universities.
