Double Degree EM3ES

On September 2018 the University of Genoa (Unige)  and the University of Applied Sciences MCI Innsbruck (MCI),  have signed an Agreement aimed at activating a joint curriculum of studies named European Master in Engineering for Energy and Environmental Sustainability (EM3ES), delivering a double MSc degree in Environmental, Environmental, Process and Energy Engineering (EP2E, at MCI) and Laurea Magistrale in Energy Engineering (En2, at Unige).

Students admitted to the  EM3ES program will be enrolled and will attend classes in both Universities  and they finally will be able to get the double Title in Italy and Austria.  Up to two (2) students per year (and per Uni) are allowed to participate in the DD program.

According to EM3ES Double Degree Program, DD students move to the Hosting University after completing the first year of their MSc at the Registration University (60 ECTS).
