Today, software engineers face new challenges as today software permeates any aspect of our life reaching the mass with sophisticated systems like Global Positioning System (GPS), life-critical like Nuclear Reactor Control systems (NRC), or business-essential like Enterprise Resource systems (ERP). For this reason, today the quality of software and software services, in terms of reliability, safety, and security is of paramount importance.
The European Masters Programme in Software Engineering (EMSE) is a 2-year international master program, completely taught in English, a cooperation among the departments of computer science of:
EMSE aims at being the most knowledgeable 2-year 120 ECTS MSc program in Europe that awards a degree in Software Engineering and preparing world-class students for both a research and a professional career in SE.
The objective is to promote the creation of software engineers who meet the requirements of international software practice today, offering them a European study programme based on the coordination of the strengths of each of the partner institutions, which, also, have a sound reputation in the field.
Students will prepared to cope with professional practice that will encompass a wide range of activities, including technical, problem solving, management, ethical and legal issues, written and oral communication abilities

Don't miss an opportunity that will change your life!
The EMSE course makes up a jointly developed curriculum fully recognized by the consortium members. At each partners, subjects are organized into courses distributed across three semesters with total of 90 ECTS. 30 ECTS credit points are assigned to the thesis in the fourth semester. This results in a two-year programme of 120 ECTS (60 ECTS per year).
Specificities, internship, project, and thesis are the major factors of specialization differentiating the partners’ offers, but students can also benefit from specific localizations of common core areas.
To improve trading-off theory and practice, to enforce a seamless synergy between the industrial and academic stakeholder and to help students’ employability, the new EMSE curriculum includes a compulsory Internship Program.
Every academic (full and associated) partner offers an internship (8 ECTS = 200 hrs.) in an external organization (e.g. non-academic associated partners) after the second semester of any learning path.
In addition, the Task Force commits is to recruit new organizations willing to hosts students’ internships or thesis. Actually, non-academic associated partners can host students for any elective activity and USP has expressed the intention to host 12 students per year for an Internship with its companies.
The Internship Program provides a direct channel for feedback and evaluation of EMSE program in terms of its practical application to real world. Feedback from companies and research centers as well as from students will be collected at the internship completion by the advisory office of the Second University. To reassume, the Companies and institutions already adhering to the Internship Program are:
To be eligible to apply for EMSE students must satisfy both the following conditions:
Students will be selected according to the following criteria:
These requirements are the same for all applicants, regardless of sex, age, or nationality. However, there are differences between European (EU) and Non-European (NON-EU) candidates for the application process. Assessment criteria is exhaustively defined in the Consortium's internal regulations.
No work experience is required.
We do not required specific amount of years of experience. However, applicants with at least two years of experience in the field will receive higher rank in the ranking list, meaning higher chance of being granted a scholarship.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
