Master in Computer Sciences
A master in English
Starting in September, 2013, the first year of the master programme will be given entirely in English, as well as most second-year classes.
1 or 2 years
3 masters are offered: a very general one of 1 year, the other 2 of 2 years. You choose your programme in terms of the level of education aimed at. The Masters lasting 2 years are outlined below.
Deepen the theory and develop the practical applications
The teaching programme privileges the software aspects of computer sciences: it provides a strong theoretical basis and a mastery of the most recent methods and practical tools. In the version lasting 2 years you construct a part of your programme yourself, in choosing notably between the Masters with Research Focus and the Masters with Professional Focus in Management.
If the 1st year is common to all, it already consists of numerous option courses (30 credits) to be taken according to your centres of interest and your personal project. It is in this perspective that a non-compulsory external training programme is offered.
Later, no matter which Masters is taken, an important final essay has to be submitted.
Masters with Research Focus
The 30 credits specific to the educational outcome allow you to acquire a high level of qualification through specific courses which are given in the domain of ‘Networks and Systems.'
Master with Professional Focus in Management
Master in computer systems architecture (MCSA)
Starting in September, 2013, the ULg adds a new master to its offering, in collaboration with Hennalux and the university of Namur : the master in computer systems architecture (MCSA). Classes will be held at Marche-en-Famenne, and will deal with secure and heterogeneous computer system architectures, mobile applications and multiplatform distribution.
The practical works, particularly those of programming, demand a not inconsiderable personal effort. Within the framework of your studies you have access to high performance computer infrastructure (wifi is widespread, centralised storage, recent software, etc.) which allows you to exploit to the maximum the possibilities of your laptop or the fixed work stations made available for you.
The career opportunities
The computer sciences sector is and will remain a significant source of jobs, whether the Masters taken has an advanced study or a specialisation outcome. Computer science companies (software development, the sale of complete personalised systems, service and consultancy, etc.) are more and more hiring computer science university graduates and companies active in most sectors of the economy (industrial production, banking and insurance sectors, supermarket distribution, telecommunications, transport, etc.) can less and less do without experts in computer science. Equally numerous possibilities exist in research, public administration and teaching.
In addition the industrial applications which aid the design of new products and the organisation of production systems are being strongly developed.
Finally the University of Liège Masters in computer science being organised in the framework of the Faculty of Applied Sciences means you have the possibility of tackling the more technical aspects of computer science use, such as network technology and micro-electronics.
Computer science students often find work before even having finished their studies.
