Computer Science

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

There are several fields that make up the broader field of computer science. One of these fields is the computational complexity theory, which can be very abstract. Other fields, such as computer graphics, deal more with concrete and hands-on visuals.

Master in Cloud Computing and Services (CCS)

EIT Digital Master School
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Sweden Stockholm

The programme in Cloud Computing and Services focuses on a broad range of applications like electronic commerce, mobile services, online social networks, peer-to-peer systems and Web services. [+]

The programme in Cloud Computing and Services focuses on a broad range of applications like electronic commerce, mobile services, online social networks, peer-to-peer systems and Web services. What is common to all of these applications is that information sources and control are decentralised over the network and multiple data centres and their underlying systems become distributed, reconfigurable and adaptive. All this makes the process of developing distributed software systems significantly more complex than for centralised systems. Cloud Computing and Services will provide students with a system of knowledge both in formal foundations, technological platforms and practical skills in implementing distributed software applications. The programme will also provide an insight into current and future directions of the distributed software development. After completion of the study, students understand and know how to use large distributed systems. On top of this they are also capable of designing and constructing cloud computing systems and services on networking and computing infrastructures. The programme will offer six specialisations: (1) Mobile Services, (2) Cloud and Data Analytics, (3) Cloud Infrastructures, (4) Data Intensive Computing, (5) Distributed Information Management, (6) Distributed Data Processing. Programme During the first year, a similar set of courses are offered at the four involved entry points Aalto University, TU Berlin, University Rennes 1 and TU Delft. This includes distributed systems, advanced network technologies, service technologies and cloud programming models. In addition, some elective cours-es may be chosen to prepare for a specialisation. An important part of the programme are the Innovation and & Entrepreneurship (I&E) courses. The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business and management. The Business Development Lab will extend projects mainly in the areas of distributed system and cloud computing by a market survey, a business model generation process and a venture development exercise. We emphasize user driven innovation and holistic analysis of service, technology, organization and financial perspectives, as distributed systems in general and cloud computing in particular are disruptive for existing business models and almost always have a significant impact on the culture and social relations. Society-relevant themes will also be at the core of the summer schools, which will bring students from the different entry points together. Students participating in the CCS track will be offered an internship in a partner industry or research centre of the EIT Digital to work on a thesis project. Directly linked to the master thesis, there will be the I&E minor thesis that will specify the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected master thesis project. The I&E thesis allows students to study topics including, but not limited to: Different models for cloud computing (IaaS; PaaS, SaaS) Peer-to-peer systems and environments Innovative service for mobile computing (location-based and context-aware services), Parallel and distributed systems Security and privacy for electronic commerce applications Linked open data and semantic web Multi-agent systems. Specialisations Specialisations are provided during the second year. The CCS programme offers 6 specialisations, each at a different location. To meet the requirements for geographic mobility, the chosen exit point needs to differ from the chosen entry point. Mobile Services at Aalto Cloud & Data Analytics at TU Berlin Cloud Infrastructures at University Rennes 1 Data Intensive Computing at KTH Distributed Information Management at Université Paris-Sud Distributed Data Processing at Delft University of Technology Specific Admission Requirements A B.Sc. degree in computer science, computer engineering or information systems, is required. Students should have basic competence in mathematics, theoretical foundations of CS, algorithms and data structures, software engineering and database systems, computer architectures, computer networks and operating systems.

Master in Embedded SystemsEmbedded Systems are the most common form of computer systems, utilising around 98 percent of all manufactured processors for their applications – from sewing machines and cars, to satellites and power plants. The common denominator for these systems is high-level demands on functionality and reliability. Programme outlineThe purpose of this Master’s programme is to provide a broad education in Embedded Systems with the opportunity to specialise in areas that cover theoretical as well as practical aspects of embedded systems development. Special emphasis is placed on engineering skills, integration of software and hardware, system design, integration, verification and the management of the design process.The programme offers three informal tracks: the Embedded Platforms track addresses the problems of designing and assembling an embedded platform, including embedded software; the Embedded Software track addresses the problems of designing and maintaining embedded software, including computer hardware fundamentals; the Embedded Control track addresses the problems of designing electronics/embedded systems that are closely integrated with mechanical systems.Degree projectThe objective of the degree project is for students to demonstrate their individual skills acquired during the programme and apply them to solving a realistic problem. The student writes a thesis report, demonstrates and defends the results. The focus of the project may be proposed by the student, an examiner, a company, a public agency or any other external organisation, but the project plan must be approved by the examiner of one of the thesis project courses in the curriculum.The degree project may also be performed at universities or companies abroad.Career prospectsThe enormous price and performance developments of electronics, coupled with their flexibility and programmability, creates considerable opportunities for innovation. At the same time, the industry is experiencing problems with sustaining competence in the area, and facing major challenges in managing the integration of software and hardware.Potential employers of Embedded Systems graduates are companies that develop electronic components and embedded systems in all possible areas. The programme has a broad industrial contact network through ICES – the KTH Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems. ICES member companies support implementation and student activities in the programme, such as trainee positions, Master’s thesis projects and pilot projects, offering participants an excellent bridge into the industry or further education in the form of PhD studies....
