Higher education in the EU is subject to constant changes. This paper concentrates on two lines of those changes i.e. internationalisation and interdisciplinarity. Internationalisation of Polish higher education is one of strategic goals established in the Strategy for the Development of Higher Education: 2010 – 2020. One of the ways of internationalisation in higher education is creating conditions for student mobility by developing degree programmes conducted in English and keeping high EU standards. Such programmes make Poland more attractive as a country of study and improve the image of Polish higher education across the world. Interdisciplinarity in higher education allows students to obtain knowledge and skills from two or more academic disciplines during one education process. Interdisciplinarity is of particular importance for computer science. Computer specialists have a service role to other fields of human activity and therefore it is very important for a computer specialist to have knowledge from other disciplines.

MADEM is a project whose primary goal is to create a new Master’s degree programme called "Mobile Application Development for Environmental Monitoring". This project is supported by funds of EEA Grants and Norway Grants. The new Master’s degree has an interdisciplinary character - it combines two disciplines: computer science and environmental engineering. All materials have been prepared in English.

This paper presents motivation, main aims, tasks and results of the project. The study programme of the new Master’s degree and some more interesting results, such as e-learning courses and new students’ books are described in detail.
