Aims of the master
The international master on "Control for Green Mechatronics" (GREEM), within the "Robotics and Control" mention
of the French Ministry of Education
, promotes a high-quality educational offer in the area of design and control of mechatronic
systems with a particular focus on two points: their functional performances and their energetic efficiency.
The consideration of the energy efficiency makes the GREEM international master very singular and very innovative and makes it
answer a real actual societal matter which is the effect of technological devices to the ecology. After graduation, the students
will have mastered the area of green mechatronics where they will be able to design new or re-design existing mechatronic systems,
to model and simulate them, to calculate controllers for their automation and their performances improvement, and to setup networks of mechatronic systems,
all together with consideration of the energy efficiency. Furthermore, international experience possibility is offered to the students: exchanges
with partner universities at the international level are possible with eventual dual-degree, internships at the international level are encouraged,
a great part of the courses are given in English, and French language and culture courses are given for non-francophone students.
The master program lasts two years and includes a total of 120 ECTS (European Credits Transfer System). The two years are split into four semesters (S7, S8, S9 and S10)
which include several features such as: two industrial certifications (Schneider and Siemens), in excess of 50% of the courses given in English,
French course offered to non-francophone students, 3-days labs in another city (in Poligny which is a small and original city of the Jura department
where winery is also well known), seminars by researchers, research labs visiting, students project in robotics for national competition,
possibility of international exchange ...
The global content is given below.
S7 semester (30 ECTS):

- INTERNSHIP (21 ECTS)
The above list presents the units of the référentiels (frame of reference) and does not include seminars, occasional schools (such as summer schools, intensive French course at the
and research institutes visiting which are also programmed in the GREEM master.
The GREEM master is one of the international masters of the Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté (UBFC).
It is also supported by the internationally renown research center FEMTO-ST.
After the GREEM master program
The career prospects of the students are very high because mechatronic systems are found and increasingly
developed in a very wide range of applications. The fact that today's problematic, like energy consumption
in technological devices, is particularly tackled in this master will make the graduated students very attractive
to industry at the international level. Furthermore, high skills and specialized students will have been educated making
them the best candidates for research and PhD programs in the fields of mechatronics at large, of control, of robotics...
