Erasmus Mundus Msc Program in Data Mining and Knowledge Management (EM-DMKM)

Erasmus Mundus Master Program in
Data Mining and Knowledge Management (EM-DMKM).

Erasmus Mundus is a certification of excellence which is delivered by
the European community
to the best international master programs in Europe, and it is
supported by very attractive scholarships.

The Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Data Mining and Knowledge Management (DMKM)
proposes specialist training in this field. This is a two years course.
The higher education consortium that organizes the master is composed
of six universities in four countries:

* France (University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris 6, University
Lumière Lyon 2, Polytech’Nantes - Polytechnic Graduate School of
Nantes University),
* Romania (Technical University of Bucharest),
* Italy (University of Eastern Piedmont Amedeo Avogadro) and
* Spain (Technical University of Catalonia)

The Master’s in DMKM is aimed at students from all over the world.
Candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in computer
science, applied mathematics or statistics, as well as a good level of
English (TOEFL 550 or equivalent). Admission is granted on the basis
of a selection procedure. Classes are taught in English and the course
is composed of 18 modules of around sixty hours each.

The course runs over 4 semesters on at least two countries of the
European Union. The first semester is devoted to basic training that
includes theoretical mathematics, statistics, databases, logic,
knowledge representation etc. whereas the two following semesters are
dedicated to acquire 2 specialities among 6 in “E-Science”, “Data
Mining and Complex System Modeling, Application in Social Science”,
“Knowledge and Decision”, “Statistical Modeling and Data Mining”, “Web
Semantic” and “Relational Data Mining”. The fourth semester is devoted
to the writing of a dissertation in either a laboratory or a company.

Language classes will also be provided to ensure that students
integrate as well as possible in socio-cultural terms in the host
country. Each student must spend (6-12) months in at least two of the
4 countries. Students that have obtained 120 ECTS, will automatically
obtain national Master’s degrees from the countries in which they have
studied. Classes are transmitted via video-conferencing. They are also
recorded and accessible on line. Students can benefit, on their site
of residence, from support in the form of tutoring for each course.

Tuition fees are 4,000 € for European students and 8,000 € for other students.

The European Union provides up to 20 scholarships that covers
transportations, subsistence and tuition fees.
It offers also up to 6 scholarships to scholars.

The deadlines for applications are:
- 2 January 2010 for Scholarships for Non European students and scholars
- 15 April 2010 for Scholarships for European students
- 20 June 2010 for DMKM Master Course
