The Japan-Europe Master on Advanced Robotics (JEMARO) - an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree from Centrale Nantes is a 2-year integrated programme  between all the members of the consortium and its goal is to allow students to better understand different perspectives in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (related to both academia and industry) across Europe (France, Italy and Poland) and Japan.


JEMARO is the first joint Japan-Europe Master on Advanced Robotics (JEMARO) - an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree from Centrale Nantes offering high-level academic and industrial training across the whole span of robotics (Mathematical modelling, Control engineering, Computer engineering, Mechanical design) with the technological specialisation of the associated industrial partners. 

All JEMARO course unit are taught in English, and they are already mutually recognized by all the consortium partners within Local Master Tracks. All activities are organized and implemented on a common agreement basis and by integrating the educational rules differences/constraints between Japan and Europe.

The student mobility path will allow a first year spread across the European partners and the second year in Japan where all students will remain together helping them to form a close-knit group.

Students who graduate from the JEMARO master’s course will obtain two master's degrees, one from a European country and the other from Japan (Keio University). The degrees are officially recognised and give full access to PhD study programmes.

Career prospects

Although the JEMARO programme relates primarily to the context of robotic systems, the concepts covered can be applied to a much wider range of other engineering and economic systems. The career prospects for JEMARO graduates are therefore excellent. They can be employed in diverse industrial and economic sectors, as the courses are relevant to today’s high tech society.

On graduation from JEMARO, the student will have acquired the following skills:

  • In-depth scientific and technical knowledge of Robotics and related AI topics and the skills to use this knowledge effectively.
  • Capacity to master modern techniques in developing and designing innovative and autonomous robotic systems such as modelling, simulation, optimisation, analysis, decision-making and control.
  • Capacity to work both independently and in multidisciplinary teams, interacting effectively with specialists and taking initiatives where necessary.
  • Capacity to communicate effectively (through both written and oral presentations) in an international context,
  • Capacity to adopt the most suitable methods for the problem at hand and select the technological components needed to implement the proposed solution.

  • Capacity to transfer high tech methodology from university to industry.
