The EMESB double degree Agreement

On December 2016 the University of Genoa (Unige)  and the University of Savoie Mont Blanc (Usmb),  have signed an Agreement aimed at activating a joint curriculum of studies named European Master in Engineering for Energy and Sustainable Buildings (EMESB), delivering a double MSc degree in Energy and Solar Buildings (ESB, at Usmb) and Laurea Magistrale in Energy Engineering (En2, at Unige).

Students admitted to the EMESB  program will be enrolled and will attend classes in both Universities  and they finally will be able to get the double Title in Italy and France.

The Agreement is available here as a synthesis of the official document.
