Description

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment. This European Master responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase. The European Master offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical, methodological and empirical courses.

Le meilleur de la formation: My name is Andrea and I was an AFEPA student from 2010-2012 so I´m the first generation graduate. I was born in Slovakia. After Bachelor studies at the Slovak University of Agriculture (Nitra, Slovakia), I decided to apply for AFEPA. My destinations were Uppsala and Budapest. ¿What's the best? Firstly, the friendship and cultural sharing. I met some great people during those two years and they made my life special. In fact, they also changed me. Everything passed so quickly and now (six months after everything is over) my mind is pulsing with a strange feeling of nostalgia. Secondly, the professional background. I found out in which direction I want to lead my life and what I want to do. I got a real passion for rural development issues, specially related to the Central European region from where I come from and where I was born. Thirdly, the independence and personal development. I’ve learnt to COOK! I’ve learnt to manage my monthly budget and I’ve learnt to take care of myself hundreds/thousands kilometers away from home.

Le meilleur de la formation: I've been awarded the SNF grant by the Swiss National Science Foundation to pursue his Doctoral Studies at ETH Zurich, often rated as the best technological university in continental Europe (with 21 Nobel Prize winners in it’s alumni, Albert Einstein being the most prominent of them). Swayamjyoti has worked with several respectable researchers who are employed with ETH Zurich, Paul Scherrer Institut, Stanford University and University of Stuttgart during his Doctoral and Master’s research. His research interests are Atomistic and Ab-Initio Simulation and Modeling of Materials. Swayamjyoti has also represented his Master program at the EMA General Assemblies in Budapest (2011) and Prague (2012) as a programme representative. He has been instrumental in organising the venue for the 2013 EMA General Assembly in Barcelona by coordinating with UPC Barcelona.

5.0 01/09/2012
Le meilleur de la formation: As a graduate I applied to the Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in Data Mining and Knowledge Management (DMKM) for the fundamental study of Data Mining and related aspects such as Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Statistical Modeling. Not only it was the curriculum attractive for me, but the general idea of the Erasmus Mundus programme of cultural exchange trough mobility and academic cooperation is also appealing. Upon finishing the program I plan to pursue PhD and combine professional and teaching activities. The qualification obtained through the studies will allow me to easily enroll in any doctoral program, and I am specifically interested in researches conducted by Université Libre de Bruxelles and Poznán University of Technology. Teaching is also important for me, because besides building my career I am enthusiastic about sharing my experience and knowledge with others.

Le meilleur de la formation: I received a full scholarship to participate in a 2 year, Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Flood Risk Management. During the course I studied in four universities across Europe specialising in several different areas of flooding such as hydro-science and engineering, hydroinformatics, coastal engineering, spatial planning and the socio-economic risks involved with flood disasters.

Le meilleur de la formation: When I graduated (one year ago), I felt I still had a lot of things to learn and see, and that if I could find a way to go abroad and continue my studies, it was the right moment to do it. The chance given to me by this master is priceless: I'm living in an incredible city, Barcelona, learning so many new things from very professional teachers and from my classmates coming from all around the world. The topic of the master has always attracted me and finally I feel I am building for myself a solid technical base that I was still lacking as an architect. At the same time, the encounter with people from other countries that have so different ways of life and ideas is opening up my mind and allowing me to see things in a different and new way.
