The creation of the University of Mons (UMONS), founded on account of the merging of the University of Mons-Hainaut (UMH) and the Faculty of Engineering of Mons (FPMs), consolidates the Mons Higher Education Consortium.
As of 2009-2010, UMONS took seat in the new academic landscape of the French Community of Belgium. The two institutions, UMH and FPMs, which were both founded on the standards of high quality research and education, chose to join forces.
The amalgamation of their potential will allow:
Many-core programming and resource management for high-performance Embedded Systems
Do-it-Yourself Smart Experiences
Open platform as a global approach to security provision of places, locations and events
