Adaptable to your background and field of interest

Since Computer Science has become a diffuse area, we decided to organize this programme in a way that it can be adapted to the background and the field of interest of the student. Students start with a number of courses (depending on their background) summarizing the basic concepts in order to gain enough knowledge to be able to take elective courses and to make a master thesis in their field of interest. All this happens in an academic environment where research is done in all topics with great interaction among the researchers and large involvement of the students.

PROGRAMME CURRICULUM

The standard track in the Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science (120 ECTS credits) consists out of 4 modules:
