Great emphasis is placed on your master thesis which is supported and assisted by experienced EU project managers.
The master thesis comprises a complete project submission for one of the subsidy programs of the European Union and consists of all of the required parts including project design, consortium formation, finances and legal aspects, as well as project management. It should serve as an excellent example of your knowledge and be viewed as the starting point for your future work in this field. Furthermore, the subsidy proposal is an excellent opportunity to directly recoup your training costs. Approval by the EU can serve as immediate proof of your new skills and knowledge.

I am holding the position as CEO in an SME focusing on Automotive & Industrial Quality Service Support. Studying in parallel was quite a challenge but definitely worth the efforts. The study program allows for combining the course contents with concrete job requirements in a perfect way – in particular if you are searching for deeper knowledge on the topic of EU funded projects. My master thesis included a full EU proposal on energy-saving measures and CO2 binding strategies in suburban and rural areas. I recommend the entire program to everyone who is in EU projects.
Not only did the Master Program give a comprehensive course based insight on how the EU really works, which in my point of view should be mandatory lectures for every European citizen, but this program also gives me an invaluable advantage on how and where I can get funding for my RnD programs and projects for my company. It just opened up a new “world” for us as a company and for me personally as well.
As one of the most innovative companies in Europe, AVL is involved in different research programs on national and European level. Before starting with the MSc EPM, I already gained first experience in the coordination of a major EU funded project. The EPM gave me the possibility to enhance my skills for the setup and management of research projects in different funding schemes, thus leading to new opportunities in my professional career.
