Computing

When individuals begin working toward a master’s degree, they can usually expect to spend one to three years in school. Students typically complete a research project or thesis before graduation. The knowledge and skills gained from a postgraduate degree prepare a person for a higher paying career or for acceptance into a doctoral program.

An individual with an undergraduate degree may wonder, what is a Master in Computing? This type of program provides critical knowledge about the role of digital systems and their management within organizations. Computation and programming languages will be developed at an advanced level. Coursework includes information technology project topics, database management issues, ethics, digital innovation, research and the human/computer interface. Instructors frequently focus on the practical application of theories in the field.

A student who completes a computing master’s achieves an advanced level of knowledge that directly correlates with potential careers. Problem-solving skills and management techniques prepare students for roles in administrative capacities.

Computing is a global field, and advanced courses are available almost anywhere in the world. This makes it difficult to pin down a list of expenses or predict an average cost. After determining which program meets the educational goal, an individual may be able to figure a rough estimate of the financial amount necessary to graduate.

Positions as software developers and engineers are currently available all over the world. Government agencies, military operations, public and private organizations and universities all require advanced computing by employees to facilitate the design and development of software and hardware and digital technologies. A graduate may be employed in quantum computing or opt for a career as a research engineer, IT manager or business analyst.

Some students prefer to attend a university at a physical location, while others require the flexibility of online courses. Curricula are available to meet a variety of educational goals.

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.
