MS@CPS is a collaborative effort among European (Germany, Sweden, and the UK) and MENA countries (Jordan, Tunis, and Palestine) to establish an International Master of Science on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs). Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is a new multidisciplinary subject that tackles the integration process between the various software and hardware technologies while maintaining a user-friendly and secure human-computer environment. The envisioned master program will focus on the contemporary recent technologies in various important applications in our daily life, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous driving, smartphones, embedded systems, big data, semantic computing, cloud computing, etc. The project is funded by the European Union within Erasmus+ program.

The project partners plan to have the next face to face meeting at “The University of Hertfordshire” in Hatfield, the United Kingdom in March 2019. The meeting will include training sessions on selected CPS topics and part of the schedule will be devoted to review the progress status and to identify the next steps.
