    The talk presents the ECMI educational system implemented at the ECMI partner universities. It consists of a to year master programme with the two branches Technomathematics and Economathematics. Technomathematics addresses students interested in modelling of technical, physical, chemical and biological systems. The course content consists of modelling seminars and introduction to technomathematics. Ordinary and partial differential equations are main ingredients together with scientific computing. Furthermore there are courses in optimization and statistics. The Economathematics branch focuses on computational methods for economics, discrete mathematics, optimization, statistics and differential equations. Beside courses in industrial and applied mathematics the students must spent one semester abroad at an ECMI partner university, emphasizing the international aspect of the education. The students must participate in one ECMI Modelling Week where the students work on industrial problems suitable for mathematical modelling. The Modelling Weeks are concluded by oral presentations and written reports for the Modelling Week proceedings. Finally, the students are required to make a master thesis project on an industrial/economic problem, preferably in direct contact with a company. Based on a review of the master thesis, ECMI certificates are issued.
