Coordinators from partner universities will present the programe, scholarship scheme and curriculum and students will be also able to ask questions.


How is the study of artificial intelligence structured?

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Artificial Intelligence (EMAI) curriculum provides knowledge of the main paradigms of AI (machine learning and symbolic reasoning), as well as their application in specific domains, such as robotics or cybersecurity. The EMAI is a research-oriented master where students will not only acquire the skills to use existing technologies, but will also learn to innovate and develop new ones.

The programme is structured into four semesters and all students will study the first at UPF, in Barcelona. The second semester, which brings the first year to a close, will be taken at any of the other three organizing universities (in Italy, Holland or Slovenia). From the second year, students will be able to choose between the four universities of the consortium depending on their area of specialization of preference:

  • Smart decision-making – Pompeu Fabra Universit
  • Robotics – University of Rome Sapienz
  • Cybersecurity – Radboud Universit
  • Data science – University of Ljubljana

The specialization also involves carrying out a master’s thesis project, working closely in an academic environment with one of the research groups of the four universities, or with one of the associated partners, which include 17 industrial partners.


A Master with a powerful scholarship programme of its own

The master is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, which provides economic support over six years. Among others, it offers full scholarships that cover the cost of the programme and a monthly allowance of €1,400 over the two-year duration of the master’s degree to cover transport, accommodation and living expenses.
