Program Overview

Program Description:
Number of ECTS: 120 Duration: 2 years Campus: Etterbeek The first year of the programme focuses on developing knowledge of computer science concepts and techniques with respect to the student’s previous studies. Elective courses in the second year allow the student to apply the skills established in the first year to a specialization, such as software development, telecommunications, multimedia, numeric engineering, bioinformatics, embedded software, or robotics, as well as many other possibilities. Practical sessions and a master’s thesis are also included in the study programme.

Applied Sciences, Engineering, Applied Computer Science

Strengths of the programme All areas of computer science are covered The programme offers lectures in all traditional areas of the computer science and also in more specialized fields like software engineering, embedded systems, web design, telecommunications, multimedia, bioinformatics, robotics and many other subjects. 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. Joint organisation of two departments provides wide range of research topics Two departments, the Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Science and the Department of Electronics and Informatics in the Faculty of Engineering, jointly organise the Master programmes. Together, they have more than 200 researchers who cover a wide range of research topics.
Setting Description:
The Master program of 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already completed an academic bachelor’s or master’s degree in a field of exact sciences or engineering, with little or outdated computer science related contents.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.English requirements for non-EEA student (TOEFL, IELTS, etc).
