Academic coordinators communicate with each other via video-conference meetings at the beginning of every semester.

As to ensure efficient and smooth coordination of the overall aspects of the Master CIMET, various bodies have been set:

The Joint Graduate Committee (or JGC) is an executive body ruling on both study matters and general Master management. The JGC is therefore in charge of:

  • Controlling the procedures of the programme of studies;
  • Guaranteeing the programme of Compulsory Courses in each institution, and the syllabus of Optional Courses;
  • Deciding upon syllabus changes;
  • Deciding upon changes, such as study plan, the structure and the credit recognition scheme of the Master;
  • Adjusting re-sit and balance examination criteria within the curriculum.

As for general management is concerned, the JGC is responsible for:

  • Creating the conditions necessary for implementation of the agreement;
  • Selection of candidatures from applicants (students and scholars),
  • Allocating them among the universities; To pay attention to the principle of gender equality;
  • Managing the tuition fees policy;
  • Deciding the amount of general costs kept by the coordinating institution;
  • Changing the conditions for the participation in the joint Master, if specific reasons require it;
  • Managing exceptions and problematic cases;
  • Dealing with students under probation.

  • Alain Trémeau, Professor, Coordinator for UJM Saint-Etienne
  • Javier Hernández-Andrés, Associate Professor, Academic coordinator for UGR Granada
  • Jon Ynge Hardeberg, Professor, Academic coordinator for UCG Gjøvik

The Quality Assurance, Evaluation and Supervision Board ensures the quality of the learning/teaching processes and of the delivered diploma.

As a supervision body, the QAESB determines:

  • The accurate procedures to evaluate development and quality of the programme,
  • The criteria, actualization and improvement procedures of the programme,
  • The analysis procedures to evaluate the professional insertion of all the graduated from the Master and their satisfaction level for the received formation,
  • The mechanisms for administrative management and certification of the results,
  • The procedures for evaluation of teachings and teachers.

The QAESB will check and approve the following documents:

  • Information Package / Course Catalogue in English and in all the languages of the Universities of the Consortium which will be both published on the website of the master and printed on a brochure.
  • The learning agreement including the course title and the ECTS. It is distributed to institutions and students.
  • The transcript of Records: this document contains the list of the courses and the obtained credits and grading established from the transcript of records given by each university giving the courses.
  • The Diploma Supplement (see template): this contains the specific description of the professional profile and skills, the contents of the courses, the obtained results and ECTS.

Members of the QAESB:
