This Master’s degree programme strikes a balance between “soft skills” and scientific/technical skills as well as between high quality research and practical field work. It offers
- the study of computer science based on fundamental concepts, the value of which goes beyond rapidly evolving technology;
- a programme taught entirely in English to improve students’ language skills (technical written and spoken English);
- exchange programs and dual degrees in Belgium, Europe and throughout the world.
As with the Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, this programme seeks to train well-rounded engineers by offering majors in related disciplines such as applied math, or electronics and communication.
You would like to
- imagine, design and implement computer systems that will shape the future;
- focus on computer science and engineering after having studied science and technology (math, mechanics, electricity, chemistry, etc.) as an undergraduate student;
- improve your theoretical knowledge and develop technical skills;
- increase your interdisciplinary knowledge in areas such as foreign languages, resource management, teamwork, autonomy and ethics;
- expand your training to include management and small and medium sized business creation;
- take advantage of a programme taught entirely in English.
Your future job
- scientists who know how to understand and analyse complex requirements associated with information technology;
- professionals who will design information systems that correspond to user needs;
- innovators who can master a wide range of technology and record its progress;
- specialists capable of implementing software solutions with particular attention to product quality and the development process.
This Master’s degree consists of:
- a compulsory part providing the knowledge necessary to model and design complex applications
- a major of your choice that allows you to acquire cutting edge knowledge in an area of interest
- at the heart of computer sciences: artificial intelligence, computer networks, cryptography and information security, software engineering, and system programming;
- at the frontier with other engineering sciences: communication networks, applied mathematics, biomedical engineering, and bioinformatics;
- beyond computer science: management and small and medium sized business creation;
- elective courses that allow you to focus your training on your areas of interest, whether they be computer science or any other discipline (electricity, management, business creation, languages);
- a graduation project (representing half your workload during the last year) offers the possibility to discuss a subject in-depth. Due to its size and scope, this project allows for an initiation into the working life of computer scientists and/or researchers. The project’s subject is selected in consultation with the programme heads and possibly a company.
