Each option has either a scientific or a more professional nature. Each option is a minimum of 15 course credits, plus, for options of a more professional nature, specific learning activities account for 15 credits in the sector concerned and, for science-options, a dissertation/final project accounts for 15 credits. This project is a scientific piece of work characterised by the originality of its subject, its approach, its results and its summarised report.

Professional Profile Options of a more professional nature lead to skilled trades in the field of language, while scientific modules are designed as preparation for research in language sciences. Admission onto Other Courses The optional modules of a more professional nature are intended to allow the student to gain the skills expected of language experts in different professional sectors (inter-linguistic mediation, language teaching intercultural negotiation, etc.). They are not supposed to lead to further studies. Instead, scientific options are a very good (but not mandatory) preparation for doctoral studies, particularly for students interested in pursuing doctoral studies in the field of language, even if language sciences has not been a focus in their previous studies.

Profile of the programme The Master's programme is designed as a coherent whole to be spread out over two years. It is the perfect opportunity to look to the future and determine what profession(s) you would like to practice. Your programme supervisor will guide you through the various choices to make that will best prepare you for the careers you are interested in. You may choose from four focuses. Whichever one you choose, internships, projects, and your thesis will give you ample opportunities to further your knowledge of the mathematical topics you are interested in and in which you can invest yourself in while taking advantage of individualised guidance. During the first year of the Master's programme, you will be asked to carry out an "integrated project". It can be an individual or group projected and will be designed according to your interests and objectives. You will be able to choose the theme of your work based on discussions with the different members of the Institute. To illustrate the type of project you can undertake, in 2008, three students along with a professor conducted a project in robotics. They created "intelligent robots" that were able to solve a Rubik's cube or escape from a maze without help. In the second year, you will have the opportunity to carry out an internship — in Belgium or abroad — according to the focus you have chosen. The goal of this internship is to let you make your first steps in the world of work. Students who are registered for the professional focus (careers in computer science or finance) will carry out their internship in a business. Those who are registered for the teaching focus will have internships in secondary schools. Students who are registered for the research focus will carry out an internship in a university. You will be able to have a reference to the option added to your diploma, which will reflect the additional aptitudes you have acquired. During the course of your Master's programme, you will also be able to take courses in another university with which the Institute has signed an agreement. The four focuses are described below. Research focus, careers in research. Surrounded by a dynamic team of researchers who have an international reputation, you will have privileged entry into today's research world. You will specialise in one of the themes we work on: functional analysis and Banach spaces partial differential equations and numerical analysis algebraic geometry calculability and model theory game verification and theory linear chaos in infinite dimensions operational research theoretical physics databases software engineering. Professional focus, careers in computer science. Your capacity for rigour and reasoning and skills with formal languages will enable you to learn advanced concepts in computer science and to deal with topics that demand a high level of abstract thinking.
