The University of Jyvaskyla in Finland, the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium, and the University of Montpellier have joined forces to enhance the attractiveness of European higher education and promote student employability by supporting excellent Master's-level training and offering scholarships to the world's best students.

Focusing on the effects of radiation on photonics and microelectronics, the aim of the RADMEP Master's program is to train students in these key technological advances for Europe's future. This training provides them with methodologies and practical applications, for the new challenges of space, aeronautics, autonomous and electric vehicles, and nuclear decommissioning.

RADMEP Master program

The first and second semesters will be held at Jyvaskyla and the Catholic University of Leuven respectively. In the third semester, students will have the choice of specializing at the Université Jean Monnet de Saint-Etienne for the "Effects of Radiation on Photonic Technologies" option, or at the UM Faculty of Sciences for the "Effects of Radiation on Microelectronic and Advanced Electronic Technologies" program. This partnership is part of the University of Montpellier's strategy of internationalizing its training programs, and contributes to its reputation in Europe and the rest of the world.
