The International Master in Service Engineering (IMSE) is an Erasmus Mundus program designed at the interface of software service systems and business processes. It focuses not on any single aspect of service but on service as a system of interacting parts encompassing people, technology and business. The program prepares you to become a thought leader in emerging technologies such as cloud and service computing.
This multiple degree program takes 2 years and is offered jointly by the Tilburg University (the Netherlands), the University of Stuttgart (Germany) and University of Crete (Greece).
After successful completion of the IMSE program, you will be awarded a joint degree in Service Science.
The respective governments are in the process of accreditating the joint degree program. In the unlikely event that the joint degree will not be recognized before graduation, IMSE-students will be awarded with the following three internationally recognized Master degrees with a concentration in Services Science:
The IMSE program prepares students with a Bachelor’s degree in either business and/or information technology (computer/information science) to become new service engineers at the intersection of software service systems and business process management by placing emphasis on the international business context of their work. In particular IMSE prepares you for a job as:
When taking into account the global need for service innovation, we expect that the IMSE graduates will have no problem whatsoever to find suitable jobs inside or outside of Europe. As graduates have acquired expert knowledge at the interface of software service systems and new globe-spanning business processes.
The IMSE programme consists of 120 Credits (ECTS), equivalent to 3360 hours of study, offered over four semesters. The first semester, which starts at the University of Stuttgart in August, contains 5 core courses of 6 ECTS each. More detailed course descriptions can be found in the IMSE Course Catalogue.

The Erasmus Mundus program is a co-operation and mobility program in the field of higher education. It aims to enhance quality in European higher education and to promote intercultural understanding through co-operation with third countries.
The Erasmus Mundus program supports high-quality European Masters Courses, by providing attractive grants for students from around the world. For Academic Year 2014-2015, approximately 9 scholarships* will be available.
There are two types of scholarships, namely the Erasmus Mundus Category A scholarship and the Erasmus Mundus Category B scholarship. For Academic Year 2014-2015, approximately 6 Category A scholarships* and 3 Category B scholarships* are available.
2014-2015 Windows scholarships
Similarly to previous years, additional scholarships should be made available for:
The distribution of these scholarships among the 138 EMMC consortia offering scholarships in 2014 will depend on their respective demand and on the geographical balance among the candidates from the countries concerned.
*Please note that these numbers are still provisonal as they have not been confirmed yet by Erasmus Mundus. The official announcement is expected in Nov/Dec 2013.
Category A scholarships (third-country students) amounts to € 48.000 for two years. Third-country nationals, eligible for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, are citizens fromall other countries than: the 27 EU member States (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Nederlands, Portugal, the UK,Sweden,Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain) and the EEA-EFTA states (Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland ).
In particular, Erasmus-Mundus applicants who are not residents of any of the above countries, and who have not carried out their main activities (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the above countries, fulfil the requirements of a third country student.
A category B scholarship can be awarded to any Master student who do not fulfil the category A criteria defined above. A category B scholarship amounts to € 20.000 for two years.
The EU requires that we maintain a geographical balance of admitted students that receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. This means that no more than two students from a single country may receive an EM scholarship for the IMSE program.
Individuals who have already benefited from an EMMC scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship or another Community grant while pursuing their Erasmus Mundus master studies. Furthermore, students who have already received an Erasmus Mundus scholarship in previous years cannot apply for a subsequent Erasmus Mundus scholarship.
