EuMAS, a European Masters Course in Aeronautics and Space Technology, is a two-year MSc course in aerospace engineering that was formed under the Erasmus Mundus programme. It started in September 2005 with the first intake of 24 students from 18 different countries.
EuMAS, which is sponsored by the European Space Agency, is offered by five universities: Università di Pisa (Italy), Technische Universität München(Germany), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), École Nationale Supérieure de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (SUPAERO) of Toulouse (France), and Cranfield University (United Kingdom).

Euro Aquae, Euro Hydro-Informatics and Water Management, is a two years joint MSc programme offers a joint degree between five European universities as a part of the Erasmus Mundus co-operation and mobility programme. It started in September 2004 with the first intake of 16 students.
The partner universities are following.
The European Masters Program in Computational Logic (EMCL) is a two years joint MSc programme offers a joint degree between five European universities as a part of the Erasmus Mundus co-operation and mobility programme. So far (from 2004 to 2008), the European Masters program in Computational Logic had more than 130 students.
The partner universities are following.
Based on a solid foundation in mathematical logic, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence and declarative programming students will acquire in-depth knowledge necessary to specify, implement and run complex systems as well as to prove properties of these systems.
In particular, the focus of instruction will be in deduction systems, knowledge representation and reasoning, ontologies, artificial intelligence, formal specification and verification, logic and computability. This basic knowledge is then applied to areas like natural language processing, the semantic web, bioinformatics, information systems and database technology, software and hardware verification.
Students will acquire practical experience and will become familiar in the use of tools within these applications. In addition, students will be prepared for a future PhD, they will come in contact with the international research community and will be integrated into ongoing research projects. They will develop competence in foreign languages and international relationships, thereby improving their social skills.
The European Masters Program in Computational Logic is sponsored scientifically by the European Network of Excellence on Computational Logic (CoLogNET), the European Association of Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the IBM Center for Advanced Studies (IBM-CAS), the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI), the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA), the Italian Association for Informatics (AICA, member of the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies), the Italian Association for Logic and its Applications (AILA), and the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).
The Joint European Master in Space Science and Technology (SpaceMaster) is a similar 120 ECTS masters programme, currently in its third round, offered by 6 universities throughout Europe: Luleå University of Technology (Sweden Coordinating University), University of Würzburg (Germany), Cranfield University (England), Czech Technical University (Czech Republic), Helsinki University of Technology (Finland) and Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier (France).
Students spend their first first semester in Germany, the second in Kiruna, Sweden and can chose from all universities for their second year. They will receive two degrees issued from two universities of the consortium, usually one from Luleå and one from the university of choice for the second year or Würzburg in case Luleå is chosen).
Since 2007 this programme is part of the Erasmus Mundus Action 3 Program which led to the creation of the SpaceMaster Global Partnership. This framework allows EU students to do part of their thesis or project work at one of the following partner universities:
An alumni programme is currently still in the planning stages.
Four European Universities ( University of Granada, Spain, University of Saint-Etienne, France, University of Joensuu, Finland, Gjøvik University College, Norway )are gathering their skills and knowledges to propose a two-year Master Programme entitled "Color in Informatics and MEdia Technology" (CIMET ).
The study programme of this Master course is broadly interdisciplinary, encompassing photonics, computer vision and imaging science, computer science and multimedia technology as a mix of relevant theoretical and practical knowledge. The objective is to educate students in advanced methodologies and models in computational color science with two goals of research orientation and further studies at the doctoral level on one hand, and practical applications on the other hand. CIMET offers three areas of specialization: Color Imaging Science, Spectral Color Science and Multimedia Technology Science. These areas are being emergent, rapidly evolving, and of growing impact on the Information Society Technologies which require specialized competencies.
The first semester is devoted to foundation courses necessary to students before beginning the two specializations they will follow. Foundation courses are proposed in any university of the consortium. The first specialisation, in the second semester, is devoted to compulsory courses in color imaging science necessary to students before beginning the second specialization. It is done either in Granada or Saint Etienne. The second specialisation, in the third semester, is done either in Joensuu or Gjøvik. Therefore, during the first three semesters, students will spend their Master Courses in either two universities or three universities. This arrangement leaves open the possibility to visit during the Master thesis period another university of the consortium which will not deliver a degree. During one of the first three semesters, students will have to follow courses on the culture and language of the visited country.
It is one of the interdisciplinary two years Masters Programs named as MOlecular NAno and BIo PHOTonics for Telecommunications & Biotechnologies which offers an original qualification in the highly innovative domain of molecular photonics for telecommunications and biology. Skills will be acquired at the strongly interdisciplinary level for emerging technologies and to develop original concepts and applications aiming at novel technological breakthroughs in this domain. The program was first commenced on September 2006.
As of September/October 2006 it became an Erasmus Mundus programme, as one of the few in Humanities.
Since 2008 European students are offered a possibility to study at other four partner universities outside Europe for three months during the 3rd semester. They are supported in the framework of the Action 3 of Erasmus Mundus.
The partner universities outside Europe are:
