The new MTECH Master at the University of Luxembourg will teach ICT innovation through technical standardization  

MTECH ILNAS, Luxembourg’s National Standardization Body, is among the founders of the new master « Technopreneurship: Mastering smart ICT, standardization and digital trust for enabling next generation of ICT solutions » (MTECH). The master, developed together with the University of Luxembourg and the Lifelong Learning Center of the Chamber of Employees (Chambre des salariés), aims to teach students, over the course of two years, how to transfer smart secure ICT knowledge directly into technical innovation, through the prism of the competitive and innovative tool of technical standardization.

The MTECH master is mainly designed for professionals in smart ICT-driven sectors and technopreneurs. For this reason, it adopts an extremely innovative and practical approach: on one hand, it will provide students with a base of knowledge on topics reflecting current issues and those at the cutting edge of Smart ICT. On the other hand, it serves as a catalyst for growth in the ICT Industry by offering practical examples and case studies illustrating the use of technical standardization as a tool to give common technical language, build trust, and foster effectiveness in Smart ICT. It also includes a specific module on technical standardization.
MTECH is the result of a fruitful collaboration between the academic, research and technical standardisation communities since 2013. ILNAS and the University of Luxembourg have built this programme based on the results of their joint developments and achievements, in particular the university certificate "Smart ICT for Business Innovation" and the research programme "Technical Standardisation for Trusted Use in the Field of Smart ICT" (2017-2020). The Master degree is also supported by the European standardization organisations, namely the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) and the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), as well as the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

The first edition of the Master will start in September 2020. More information on the Master and on admission requirements can be found at this link, or by contacting the University of Luxembourg
