Master in Information Technologies

The aim of the Master in Information Technologies is to provide students with a grounding in all computing-related ICT areas. These constantly evolving areas underlie the lines of current research, development and innovation. At the end of the course, Master graduates will have acquired the following abilities and competencies:

Course tracks

The Master in Information Technologies has two main tracks: an academic and a professional track. Master in Information Technologies students can also gain admission to a third, research track. The aim of the academic track is to train students to apply what they have learned on the master course and innovate in their field of specialization. In the professional track, students learn to apply a range of multidisciplinary knowledge to analyse and solve a real and complex problem common to a number of professional activities within the computing field. The research track prepares students for doctoral studies.

Academic track

In this Master track, students complete their course by developing a master thesis. The master thesis is a theoretical or theoretical/practical assignment, involving a detailed study of a specific field, in which students are expected to demonstrate the knowledge and capabilities they have acquired.

Professional track

To finish their course, students will have to complete a practical project assignment.  Like the problems they are likely to encounter in their professional career, this project will, in principle, be poorly defined. Additionally, they will have to apply the knowledge acquired in their studies to specify the fields of knowledge and techniques to be used to solve the set problem.

Research track

Students that aim to pursue the Master research track are advised to take Computer Sciences Module Advanced Courses worth at least 20 ECTS. This is a requirement for admission to doctoral studies

Master's Degree in Information Technologies

To be awarded the degree of Master in Information Technologies, students shall have to earn a total of 120 ECTS (over two academic years). ECTS are structured around what are termed Concentrations and Modules. Concentrations are groups of subjects equivalent to specializations designed to cover specific areas of technology. Modules cover sets of subjects targeting a specific type of training.

To earn the Master’s degree, it is compulsory for students to take:

Students will be awarded a Master in Information Technologies degree certificate, expressly stating the major concentration that they have taken as their specialization. The major concentrations on offer are as follows:

Major Concentrations

Concentrations that can be taken as both the major and minor specialization are listed below. Modules (see below) do not count as specializations. The concentrations that have the same name but are listed as I and II count as one specialization only.
