Two joint Masters programmes in engineering are labelled success stories

LundUniv's picture
Both Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degrees at the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University have been labelled as “success stories” by the European Commission. The Master’s programme in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE) already received this label of quality last summer and the Master’s in Food Innovation and Product Design (FIPDes) recently received the same distinction from a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture at the European Commission.

The label “success story”

The European Commission defines “success stories” as finalised projects that have distinguished themselves by their impact, contribution to policy-making, innovative results and/or creative approach and that can be a source of inspiration for others. The selection of the two Master’s programmes was made based on rigorous criteria regarding their quality, relevance and results.

Master's programme in Fire Safety Engineering

IMFSE is organised jointly by Lund University, Ghent University (Belgium) and The University of Edinburgh (UK) and the consortium has three associated academic partners – ETH Zürich (Switzerland), The University of Queensland (Australia) and the University of Maryland (USA) – as well as 7 industrial partners. The three consortium universities are leading European institutions in the field of fire safety, providing both educational programmes and high-level research. This programme’s main objective is to create an educational programme that defines the knowledge required for a career as a professional fire safety engineer capable of Performance Based Design (PBD).

Master's programme in Food Innovation and Product Design

FIPDes is a collaboration between Lund University, AgroParisTech (France), UNINA (Italy) and DIT (Ireland) and has associated partners from Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela and Korea. This Master’s aims to provide a European dimension in the knowledge-intensive area of food research and development and is highly relevant for both EU and third country students who wish to be employed in the agri-food and drink sector. 



Recent graduates about the programmes

Rohan John Baptiste (Saint Lucia), Fire Safety Engineering
I loved this programme. The courses really prepare you for a career as a fire safety engineer. I was exposed to so many topics. A big plus is that you get the opportunity to visit three different universities in the first three semesters. The study environment is special. The teachers are always open to helping you out if you ask for assistance. I love that open-door policy.

Divya Mohan (India), Food Innovation and Product Design
“FIPDes was an enriching experience, personally and academically. I specialised in food packaging design and logistics at Lund University, where I had extremely unique and focused courses. The projects I worked on involved real industrial tasks that needed an innovative and sustainable approach towards problem-solving. The focus is on the quality of learning and not the quantity.”
