Campus Full time September 2017 Belgium Leuven

This master program forms engineering students in traffic and intelligent transporation systems (design, maintenance and management of infrastructure and (public) transportation systems), and in logistics and transportation (supply chain engineering, distribution logistics…). [+]

The world of traffic evolves fast! Just think of the rise of the self-driving car. Besides the traditional governments, road admissions and public traffic firms, traffic becomes more than ever big business for trendy firms. Examples are Google, Tesla and Uber or fun apps like Moovit and Waze. In most cities, you can already find car and bike sharing systems (e.g. Villo, Cambio and Car2Go) and enterprises that provide completely integrated packages of Mobility-as-a-Service and want to ban private cars to the history lessons. Are you one of the young ambitious engineers of this new generation and would you like to help this revolution? The world of logistics is constantly changing. Familiar terms such as e-commerce are in fact a super dynamic logistic machine with a webstore as visible outing: when you click on ‘buy now’, somewhere in Utrecht or Dresden a machine pops into action and within 24 hours your purchase is delivered at your front door anywhere in Belgium. Behind the scenes, optimization stays the key word. Airplanes, vans and cargo-bikes today, maybe in the future drones or automatic vans, will deliver your packages. The same process appears in the supply chain of enterprises that constantly redesigns due to new players, different prices and new technologies like 3D printing, since the old solutions became too expensive or dispensable. Do you advance your business to be a logistic winner? This master program forms engineering students in traffic and intelligent transporation systems (design, maintenance and management of infrastructure and (public)... [-]

MSc Degrees in Belgium 2017/2018. What’s the Erasmus Mundus Master of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology all about? Within the Erasmus Mundus framework, four leading educational institutions in Europe offer a joint Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The partner institutions are: KU Leuven, Belgium (Coordinator) Chalmers, Tekniska Högskola, Sweden Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble, France Technische Universität Dresden, Germany The word Nanoscience refers to the study, manipulation and engineering of matter, particles and structures on the nanometer scale (one millionth of a millimeter, the scale of atoms and molecules). Important properties of materials, such as the electrical, optical, thermal and mechanical properties, are determined by the way molecules and atoms assemble on the nanoscale into larger structures. Moreover, on a nanometer scale, structures’ properties are often different then on a macro scale because quantum mechanical effects become important. Nanotechnology is the application of nanoscience leading to the use of new nanomaterials and nanosize components in useful products. Nanotechnology will eventually provide us with the ability to design custom-made materials and products with new enhanced properties, new nanoelectronic components, new types of ‘smart’ medicines and sensors, and even interfaces between electronics and biological systems. Structure In the first stage of the programme all students study at the coordinating institution, where they take a set of fundamental courses (max 12 credits) to give them a common starting basis, general interest courses (6-9 credits), a compulsory common block of core courses (36 credits), and already a profiling block of elective courses (min...
