Le Mans University (France) is a public university (around 11 000 students) specialized in acoustics research and teaching. It offers students Bachelor's and master's programmes in acoustics and more specifically a master's programme in electroacoustics, the International Master's Degree in Electroacoustics (IMDEA). The specialized courses offered in this programme enable students to know how to design, model and measure audio systems (loudspeakers, microphones, ...) in order to work in Research and Development departments in industry in private or public organizations. This programme is also supported by a foundation and the courses are given in English in collaboration with a private engineering school. In this paper, we present the creation of the IMDEA, the admission process for candidates, the organization of the courses, the collaboration with external teachers (from universities or specialized companies). The presentation will focus on student's projects and will show how they enable students to synthesize and strengthen knowledge gathered during the lectures and to create networking with companies. Different examples of projects done by first year and second year students will be given (portable speakers, directive subwoofer, headphones, ...). Monitoring of the project progress and assessment of student's work will be described. Finally, the work done by the student's association (IMDEA Network) in order to enhance the connection with industry and in order to acquire skills in audio systems listening will also be explained. Statistics about alumni will then be presented and discussed.
