The IMIM Programme was founded in 2004 by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden). It has been successfully implemented with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme from 2006 to 2010. Due to the high quality throughout demonstrated, in 2010 IMIM has been awarded by the European Commission/EACEA an Erasmus Mundus Brand Name (EMBN). In 2012 the Consortium and the Programme changed their structures and different streams of specialisation were introduced for the 3rd semester. The Master was then awarded with the Erasmus Mundus funding for the years 2013-2017. In 2013 Heriot-Watt University (Scotland, UK) joined the IMIM Consortium.
'ANIMP, Associazione Nazionale di Impiantistica Industriale' association believes in the high-quality of IMIM programme and cooperates in its development.
