Overview

The Master of Applied Computer Science is designed for students who have already completed an academic bachelor’s or master’s degree in a field of exact sciences or engineering, with little or outdated computer science related contents. It develops computer science skills that will complement the primary field of expertise of the student.

During the two master years students are able to continue to build on the broad ranging basic scientific knowledge acquired as part of their Bachelor programme, complemented with the Information Technology profile, combining a multidisciplinary engineering training with an in-depth specialisation in Applied Computer Science.

Programme structure

The first year of the programme focuses on developing knowledge of computer science concepts and techniques with respect to the student’s previous studies. Elective courses in the second year allow the student to apply the skills established in the first year to a specialization, such as software development, telecommunications, multimedia, numeric engineering, bioinformatics, embedded software, or robotics, as well as many other possibilities. Practical sessions and a master’s thesis are also included in the study programme.

All graduates should have acquired a thorough basic, understanding of all branches of computer sciences such as algorithms, data structures, theoretical information science, concepts of programming languages, artificial intelligence, databases and information and communication technology.

Career opportunities

The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering : Applied Computer Science graduates are expected to be capable of assuming managerial and staff supervisory positions in all sectors of industry where the development and/or the application of software technology (ICT) play a key role.
