Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering

InformationCourse/CS accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).
The study cycle is waiting registration from DGES.

This study cycle (M.EIC) results from the transformation of the former Integrated Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering (MIEIC) of FEUP into two independent study cycles, in order to comply with article 19 of Decree-Law No. 65/2018 of 16 August, L.EIC being the 1st and M.EIC the 2nd of these cycles. 

This study cycle consists of:

  • a non-degree-awarding master’s course in Informatics and Computing Engineering, consisting of an organized set of course units (UCs) corresponding to 90 ECTS credits. The possibility of awarding the diploma will only occur in the 2nd year;
  • an original scientific dissertation specifically conceived for this purpose, corresponding to 30 of the 120 ECTS credits in the study cycle; the defense of the dissertation in public examination will allow obtaining the master degree in Informatics and Computing Engineering.

The curricular units offered in the curricular component are organized in the following scientific areas:

  • 7 core areas of Informatics and Computing Engineering: Computer Architecture, Operating Systems and Networks; Cybersecurity; Software Engineering; Artificial Intelligence; Interaction and Multimedia; Programming; Information Systems;
  • 2 complementary areas: Quantitative Methods and Management; Personal Development/ Transversal/Transferable Skills;
  • UCs classified in Multidisciplinary Themes, as they potentially cover all areas of Informatics and Computing Engineering.

Note - All the course units are prepared to be taught in English. 


Regarding mandatory and elective UCs, the curricular component comprises:

  • a common core of mandatory UCs totaling 40.5 ECTS credits, with 5 UCs from different core areas plus two multidisciplinary UCs (Project Management Laboratory and Dissertation Planning);
  • a set of free-choice electives totaling 49.5 ECTS credits, including an option in “Transferable Skills” with 1.5 ECTS credits.

Objectives

GENERIC OBJECTIVES

M.EIC’s primary objective is to promote the qualification of its graduates in recent developments and advanced aspects of Informatics Engineering (EI), with application to the conception, design, implementation and operation of computer systems and the integration of ICT in organizational environments, thus enabling its graduates to perform high responsibility roles and leadership roles in complex, innovative and multidisciplinary contexts, or to pursue a PhD.

To this end, it offers an education combining:

  • common education on the most recent developments in the major scientific and technical areas of EI;
  • specialized education in advanced EI topics of interest to each student by choosing optional UCs;
  • flexible education in complementary aspects in Management and Transversal Skills.

The study cycle comprises 40.5 ECTS of compulsory UCs, 49.5 ECTS of optional UCs and 30 ECTS of Dissertation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The learning objectives include:

  • In general, acquire with the necessary proficiency knowledge of engineering sciences and technologies in the ICT domain, as well as management skills and personal, professional and interpersonal skills and attitudes, and be able to use them to solve, anticipate and prevent complex problems in the ICT domain and to conceive, design, implement and operate complex ICT-based systems in social and business contexts.
  • More specifically, be able to perform the professional roles indicated in the European ICT Professional Role Profiles which require competences at level e-4 (master) of the European e-Competence Framework, (e.g., Devops Expert, Data Scientist, Cyber Security Specialist, Solution Designer, etc.), including roles of high responsibility in complex innovation-focused contexts and leadership roles in multidisciplinary projects in the ICT domain.

Employment Prospects

Job opportunities related with the professional roles indicated in the European ICT Professional Role Profiles which require competences at level e-4 (master) of the European e-Competence Framework, (e.g., Devops Expert, Data Scientist, Cyber Security Specialist, Solution Designer, etc.), including roles of high responsibility in complex innovation-focused contexts and leadership roles in multidisciplinary projects in the ICT domain.
