The Master of Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science is designed for students who have already completed an academic bachelor’s or master’s degree in a field of exact sciences or engineering, with little or outdated computer science related contents. It develops computer science skills that will complement the primary field of expertise of the student.
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.
The standard track in the Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science (120 ECTS credits) consists out of 4 modules:
- Compulsory Core Courses (61 ECTS)
- 21 ECTS from the module 'Smart Cities' or the module 'Digital Health'
- 14 ECTS of elective courses, including the possibility of doing an internship
- Master Thesis Applied Computer Science (24 ECTS)
More details about the programme's curriculum can be found on the programme website.
At least a bachelor degree in one of the following areas:
- Geography/Geology Biology/ Biochemistry/ Biotechnology/Chemistry
Students holding a Bachelor’s or Master's degree in another field of the exact sciences or engineering can also apply.
