Short description of the study programme

"The MSc Program in Computer Science Engineering is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the tools, methods, applications and practice of computer science and information technologies. It is both theoretical and practical in its orientation, with the goal to provide an education that is directly applicable to positions in industry.The program has an integrated curriculum. Out of the 120 credits to earn during the 4 semesters, 110 credits are dedicated to computer engineering and the underlying knowledge. On one hand, this is provided through lecture courses for the apprehension of the theoretical background. On the other hand, there are several practical and laboratory courses for acquiring the necessary proficiency and skills. In addition to these compulsory subjects, 6 credits are to be obtained from elective subjects related to the field, and another 6 credits from electives in human and economic sciences. The program mainly comprises foundation and core subjects (24 credits), specialization subjects supplemented by project work and laboratory work (56 credits), and thesis design work (30 credits). To earn the degree, students should take a final exam and defend their thesis.Specialized studies start either in the 2nd semester (in case of autumn enrolment), or right in the 1st semester (in case of spring enrolment). Students should CHOOSE both a main and a secondary SPECIALIZATION when writing the ADMISSION TEST. Any main specialization can be combined with any secondary specialization.
Main specializations:
• Data Science and Artifical Intelligence
• Software Engineering
Secondary specializations:
• Smart City
• Quantum Informatics
