Following a call for proposals from the Higher Education Ministry in Norway and the Foreign and European affairs Ministry in France, a new Master course is opening in September 2012.
This Franco-Norwegian Master course will focus on "3D Multimedia Technology" between the Faculty of Science and Technology of University Jean Monnet of Saint-Etienne and Gjøvik University College. The Master is based on the Master "Optics, Image, Vision" delivered by University Jean Monnet in Saint-Etienne and the Master in "Media Technology" of Gjøvik University College.
This new two-year Master level course builds its curriculum around the two existing Master courses offered at each partner university. The first two semesters will be taught in Saint-Etienne, with some distance learning course with Gjøvik. The third semester will take place in Gjøvik and the fourth semester will be devoted to the internship and Master thesis in a laboratory or a company in France, Norway or any other country.
All courses are taught entirely in English and this in order to internationalize the training and increase its competitiveness. In addition, the two institutions aim to set up a joint degree but in the meantime, students will receive two national diplomas.
To access this Master course, students must hold a University level degree in Computer Science or equivalent (180 ECTS, B.Sc.). This course is open to all students who will be recruited on the basis of their academic records, motivation and language skills.
For the first edition, a batch of at least nine high quality students is expected, and will then reach the number of 12 to 15 as a minimum.
The grants from the French and Norwegian authorities are dedicated to fund the mobility of selected students and faculty members involved and to costs related to the promotion of the Master.
This financial support is guaranteed for the first edition of the Master course 2012-2014.
Other sources of student financial support such as Erasmus mobility grant and Explora regional council grants will also be available.
