Master in Computer Science (MCS)

The Master Programme in Computer Science is designed primarily for Computer Science and other science-related graduates who seek to develop research skills and enhance their knowledge in advanced areas of Computer Science. Students who attend this programme may pursue a PhD degree after their graduation.

The completion of the programme requires 90 ECTS, and the duration of studies should be at least three semesters. These 90 credits correspond to eight courses and a Master thesis. More specifically:

  • Seven postgraduate courses of 8 ECTS each (any seven from the postgraduate course list with the supervision of the Academic Advisor)
  • One postgraduate course of 4 ECTS (CS670 Research Methodologies and Professional Practices in Computer Science)
  • Master Thesis worth of 30 ECTS.

The seven graduate courses must be from the graduate course catalogue of the Department. Each student selects these courses with the guidance of the academic advisor.

In case a student successfully complete at least four courses from the specialized Master Direction of the Department then the student may transferred to the corresponding Specialzed Master where will receive his diploma.
