This Master in Information and Computer Sciences from the University of Luxembourg is a continuation of the Bachelor studies as a first step towards the PhD. MICS starts with an orientation meeting where all new students get to know the professors and other students. The first semester is then mandatory for all: it is dedicated to the fundamentals of computer science. By the end of the first semester, the student selects courses based one or more profiles that he likes to pursue. Profiles are similar to specializations with the added benefit that multiple profiles can be realized. The following profiles are currently being offered:
The second and third semester offer specialised courses in the selected field, preparing the candidate for the final Master Thesis.
The Master in Information and Computer Sciences adheres to the Bologna agreement.
Students will acquire the necessary know-how for high-level research- and industry-oriented work. Currently we teach students from more than 10 different countries, we have national and international cooperation agreements with universities across Europe, US, and China, and the private sector. The multilingual and inter-cultural environment empowers students to work both individually and in multinational teams.
