MSc in Mathematical Informatics (Dual International Masters)MSc Computer Science and Informatics - Liverpool Hope University, UKMSc Applied Mathematics - Université Catholique de l’Ouest, France The Dual International Masters in Mathematical Informatics is unique programme delivered by two academically enowned Universities in Europe: Liverpool Hope University, UK and the Université Catholique de l’Ouest, France.By utilising the teaching knowledge, research excellence and first class faculties of two leading European institutions, the Dual International Masters in Mathematical Informatics provides a world class academic curriculum and practical learning experience for the technology and scientific graduates of the future.The Dual International Masters in Mathematical Informatics programme provides students the opportunity to study both in the UK and in France where they will gain two degrees in less time and at a lower cost than it would take to earn the degrees independently.Successful graduates will gain the MSc Computer Science and Informatics, awarded by Liverpool Hope University, UK and MSc Applied Mathematics, taught at the Université Catholique de l’Ouest, and awarded by the University of Angers, France.The programme includes a paid internship where students will be working on a technology project within a company. The internship gives an opportunity to utilise the technical, scientific and academic knowledge learnt within the programme whilst further developing communication, teamwork and interpersonal skills.The internship cumulates in a research dissertation that is assessed by both Liverpool Hope University and Université Catholique de l’Ouest.Programme Overview• Two Degrees - earn two postgraduate qualifications - The programme has been designed to provide a complimentary set of modules culminating in two awards. You gain two qualifications – the MSc Computer Science and Informatics awarded by Liverpool Hope University, the MSc Applied Mathematics awarded by Université Catholique de l’Ouest.• Paid internship as part of your learning - The programme does not just include academic learning; you will also have the opportunity for a paid internship. You will be involved in a live technology project that draws on your skills and knowledge, offering valuable job training and professional experience that will help your future career.• Double opportunities in half the time - The programme leading to two awards is completed in two years. You will have gained two qualifications in less time and at a lower cost than it would take to earn the degrees independently, plus you will have benefited from additional paid industry experience.• Two-centre teaching - Liverpool Hope University and Université Catholique de l’Ouest have a long established partnership, working together in academic research, collaboration and scholarship. Whilst your studies are taught in English, you will be learning from two world class institutions gaining experience in two countries.• Teaching underpinned by research - Technology changes so quickly it is vital that your learning and teaching is as up to date as possible. Liverpool Hope University and Université Catholique de l’Ouest offer research intensive environments and its faculty members are active in collaborative research projects nationally, internationally, within both academic and industry environments. This is reflected back to your teaching and learning. As well as well-established concepts, you are equipped with the most advanced theories and techniques and will gain the most up to date knowledge.• International Faculty - You will learn from academic faculty from across the world.

You will learn first-hand from the best.• Global Exposure - In an increasingly global world, employers want graduates with an international outlook. You will gain global exposure by living, studying and working in a two different cultures. You will gain two networks of contacts, colleagues, academic faculty and potential employers.• Conferences and Research Seminars - Postgraduate education is not just about being in a classroom and completing assignments. MSc students require determination, critical thinking, analytical skills and exposure to a variety of resources. As well as an international faculty, the Department has an on-going research seminar and conference schedule where MSc students are invited to sessions from faculty staff, external academics from both national and international universities, and leading industry figures. The more opportunities you have to gain knowledge and network with industry, the more opportunities you have for success.• First-class laboratory facilities - As an MSc student you have available to the best facilities. The Department of Computer Science has dedicated postgraduate labs with recently refurbished i7 processors and Windows 7. Research is supported by the established Intelligent and Distributed Systems (IDS) Research Laboratory and High Performance Computing (HPC). Labs are configured as render farms for background graphics processing, plus state-of- the-art Robotics and Embedded Systems equipment.The programme combines academic and practical courses plus an internship and dissertation in project. All teaching and assessment is conducted in English language. You will be assessed for each module. Assessment methods will vary and may include academic essays, reports, presentations, examinations, a research proposal and research dissertations.In the first year, six courses are taught at the Department of Computer Science, Liverpool Hope University, UK.In the second year, four courses are taught at the Institute Mathematique Applique, Université Catholique de l’Ouest, France. Non-active speakers of French language programme prior to the beginning of the teaching to help secure a good working knowledge of the French language which is deemed essential both to enable students to fully benefit from the experience of living in France but also in order to secure a paid internship with a French employer.The taught part of the programme is followed by a paid internship and dissertation project to be completed in France, and a dissertation project that is assessed by both universities....
