The mobility in the ME3 program allows students to experience the diversity of European culture.

The Nordic perspective is well represented by the Royal Institute of Technology (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan), KTH, which is responsible for one-third of Sweden’s capacity for engineering studies and technical research at post-secondary level. Considering both that industries in the Nordic Countries are among the most energy-intensive in the world and that Nordic countries are generally considered as leaders in renewable energy deployment, KTH is positioned at the cutting edge of research in energy / environment and renewable energy production.

The Mediterranean perspective is represented by The Technical University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM) which is the oldest and largest of the Spanish Technical Universities. Its strong interdisciplinary research team DIOBA works on managerial sciences, and is mostly made up of a team of mechanical, chemical engineers holding a MBA. Their work is recognized worldwide.

A subtle mix of Latin and a Western Europe perspective is represented by IMT Atlantique Nantes. established by the French Ministry of Industry, and designed as a tool for the development of industry through high-level teaching and research. Several world leading companies in the field of Energy/Environment services and production are located in France (Veolia, Total, Suez Environment etc.) which represents an opportunity for many students who carry out their master’s thesis in France in a French group and speak almost fluent French by the end of the master program.

The Central European perspective is represented by Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) founded in 1782. It was the first institute in Europe to train engineers at university level. In the context of the post-communist transformation of Central and Eastern Europe BME (especially at the energy production and supply level) is a European centre of research excellence on energy production and supply and energy modelling. For example, BME possesses one of the only pilot scale "nuclear reactors" devoted to teaching.

The Western European perspective is represented by Queen’s University Belfast, founded by Queen Victoria in 1845 in the leafy suburbs of south Belfast. Queen’s has a long history of academic achievement, and is a member of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities. Queen’s Chemical Engineering is ranked 3rd in the UK for teaching excellence and has a strong links with industry particularly through the multidisciplinary QUESTOR Centre for environmental-related research.

Student Diversity

ME3 students originate from more than 40 countries around the world. The ME3 program provides opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom to share your culture and learn about the cultures of other students. Working on projects with a diverse range of people from all over the world,throughout the 2 year duration of the project, not only enriches students lives, but also prepares them for the type of working environments present in international companies.


The best way to learn any language is through immersion. The ME3 program allows students to increase their attractiveness to international companies by improving their language skills. The vast majority of ME3 graduates find employment where they routinely utilize their language skills on the job.
