The ITA master is a new European two-year master programme within the EIT Digital Master School “ICT Innovation”. The aim of the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) is to breed a new generation of technology-skilled entrepreneurs by enhancing high-profile technology education with a strong business orientation. For the field of ICT, the EIT has created through the KIC ICT Labs (one of the Knowledge and Innovation Communities), several ICT master programmes to combine ICT engineering on an advanced level with a business minor focused on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). The goal is to make students that take part in this education the elite group of forthcoming ICT professionals. The unique features of this advanced level education are: A standardized I&E minor Mobility among universities (one year at one university and the second year at another university) Specialisation at one of the European top universities Personal industrial relationships for the students, including industrial mentors and internships at EIT Digital non-university partners as part of the study plan. Thematic area grounding and utilization of resources from EIT Digital research and business activities There are seven ICT programmes (majors), one of them is Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA) offered by a consortium of UPMC (Paris), TUB (Berlin), KTH (Stockholm), UNITN (Trento), UNS (Nice), ITA/TB (Brest) and UPM (Madrid). The first year consists of one semester of core courses on ITA and one semester on Entrepreneurial education. For the second year, students can select a specialisation and complete a thesis project at one of the industrial partners. Internet Technology and Architecture The technical major in Internet Technology and Architecture is a focused programme of study involving advanced networking technologies and architectures for the design and management of modern distributed computer systems and networks. This programme is in line with the challenging field of computing communication and networking technologies that has lately received considerable attention and is today considered as a major topic for most curriculum studies in IT. Programme The aim of the Internet Technology and Architecture programme is to develop a coherent set of theoretical knowledge and professional understandings and skills in computer networks. Emphasis is placed on understanding of current research issues as well as detailed practical experience of network design, development, implementation, and management. The first year will be similar at the four entry points UPMC, TUB, KTH and UNITN with four basic courses on the foundations of networking, network design and modelling, wireless and mobile computing, and advanced next generation networks. In addition, some elective courses may be chosen to prepare for a specialisation. This programme also includes an I&E minor that will provide students with both theoretical concepts and practical tools that will develop critical thinking in assessing entrepreneurship opportunities and devising appropriate strategies to turn ideas into profitable business ventures. The I&E minor consists two courses: The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business and management. The Business Development Lab will extend media systems engineering projects by a market survey, a business model generation process, and a venture development exercise. Students participating in the ITA 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 an I&E minor thesis that will specify the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected thesis project. Specialisations Specialisations will be provided in the second year. The ITA major will offer seven specialisations, each at a different location: User-centric networking at UPMC Internet technologies at TUB Communication systems design at KTH Wireless and mobile access networks at UNITN Networked Analysis and Experimentation at UNS Internet of things at IT/TB Technologies for Internet Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing at UPM To meet the requirements for geographic mobility, the chosen exit point needs to differ from the chosen entry point. Specific Admission Requirements A B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, computer engineering or information technology is required. Sufficient background in basic data communications, telecommunications and internetworking as well as mathematics, including calculus, linear algebra and mathematical statistics is also required.
