The Master’s in Computer Science provides high quality, advanced training to professionals and investigators of a range of specialisations with the field of Computer Science. It increases the knowledge base regarding information technology of those first cycle degree holders who intend to enter directly into the job market whilst simultaneously solidifying the theoretical concepts of those who intend to continue their academic studies. This master’s degree is particularly relevant for those first cycle degree holders who wish to complement their training. It provides technical and scientific improvements to increase students’ employability. It also serves to prepare scholars for doctoral level training.


Áreas de Especialização

The Masters Program has three specializations, beyond a generic route.
  • Reliable Computing: Fundaments of computer science and rigorous methodologies with immediate application in areas such as computer security and critical systems.
  • Parallel and Distributed Systems: High performance distributed systems, peer-to-peer, resource mobility and advanced computing, embedded systems and distributed. Concepts an knowledge that are essential to most demanding computing tasks.
  • Data Mining and Data Processing: Data Mining, advancing data bases, structured document processing, image processing, among other topics of growing application in business and scientific research.

Working Language

The MCC is a master´s degree that has grown in numbers of international students admitted. The teaching and materials may be available in Portuguese or in English. Preference is given to English whenever there are students who do not master Portuguese. Therefore, candidates for the MCC must have a good command of English.


Competências Profissionais

In this Masters Program in-depth Computer Science / Informatics professional skills are developed through practical, theoretical and
research components, such that its graduates can immediately start their careers either in a business company or in scientific research position. The program exercises a close connection both with the business environment as well as with the high quality research units (INESC TEC, IT-Institute of Telecommunications
and CMUP).

Saídas Profissionais

This Masters degree gives access to computing careers such as, advanced programmer, systems analyst, data base administrator, data miner, computer projects administrator, system administrator, etc... This program constitutes also an excellent background preparation for any international PhD program, if the goal is to pursuit a career in research or in a highly qualified job. The knowledge and skills here acquired are also a precious asset for a successful career in teaching.

Admissions Requirements

  • Applicants for the Master’s in Computer Science must hold first cycle degrees in computer science, IT, information engineering, computational science, mathematics or related fields.
  • Holders of other first cycle degrees may be accepted, in the event that their curriculum demonstrates adequate basic theoretical background.

Criteria for Selection and Ranking

  • Curriculum and technical skills (30%). If necessary, the evaluation of this criteria could include an interview to the candidate.
  • Appropriateness of first cycle studies to the master’s programme (30%).
  • Grade Average obtained in the first cycle studies (40%)
