MAKES (Master in Manufacturing Adaptive Key Enhancers for a Sustainable Industry) is a European Master’s Program in Sustainable Industrial Manufacturing for educating Industrial Engineers to become committed actors in the sustainable re-industrialization of Europe.
It addresses the gap that currently exists between existing master's diplomas in contributive disciplines and technologies and the rapidly evolving skill needs in the re-industrialization process of Europe in the digital age.
While Industry 4.0 is already reshaping the industry in Europe mainly through a techno-economic lever, the challenge is to add an essential socio-ecologic dimension to the transformation. Europe needs new engineers with systemic skills and competencies to integer all the technical dimensions of manufacturing within ecologic, social and economic sustainability.
Born as an intrinsically joint initiative from the Unite! European University, MAKES capitalizes on the excellence of Grenoble INP-UGA, Politecnico di Torino, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Universidade de Lisboa, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and the diversity of their existing educational programs, their top-level learning and teaching infrastructures, and their highly recognized services to students lives.
The unique MAKES program leans on a common year 1 to train students in the systemic approach in engineering, delivered by two entry universities, and five future-oriented specializations.
Students will experience transnational interaction and integration through two mobility periods of one year, and a physical summer school. Transnational, joint teaching will be facilitated through the Unite! MetaCampus online platform.
Students start in one of two partner universities (Grenoble INP-UGA, France; POLITO, Italy) for the first year, then move on to another partner university for the second year. The second mobility period of one year (S3 & S4) is for their specialization and master thesis at the exit university, which must not be their entry university.
This scheme ensures a common basic level of competences on the one hand through the coordinated curriculum developed between Grenoble and Turin, and a high-level specialisation offered by each of the partners according to the particular needs and preferences of the students for the second year.
The organisation of study periods including the minimum mobility requirements and the mutual recognition of the learning outcomes/credits.

The MAKES diploma is composed of three clearly characterized programme pillars, balanced over any path chosen by the students:
1. MAKES “Principles” Programme: Sustainable Manufacturing fundamentals in terms of subjects related with Industrial Engineering, Sustainability, Economics & Innovation, Intercultural
2. MAKES “Enhancers” Programme: Advanced, modern Sustainable Industrial Engineering subjects including Industry 4.0 key enabling technologies
3. MAKES “Integration” Programme: Cross-cutting, interdisciplinary, and intercultural subjects with a strong human, integration and project orientation.
The overall joint curriculum and mobility concept is the following:
