|The Integrated Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering has been awarded the international EUR-ACE quality label. This certifies MIEIC as a high-quality programme which meets the international standards for professional engineering education at the masters level. [+ info]|
Accreditation by A3ESThe Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES), at 20th of June, 2014, and in accordance with the recomendation and fundamentation produced by the respective External Review Team, decided to accredit MIEIC, without conditions, for a period of 5 (five) years. More information can be found in the reports made available by A3ES.
Learning Informatics and Computation Engineering at FEUP was conceived as requiring a full five years integrated cycle of education, training and apprenticeship. This integrated cycle matches the implementation of the 1st and 2nd cycles of the Bologna Process and immediately confers the Master of Science academic degree.
The Integrated Master in Informatics and Computation Engineering (MIEIC) formally aims to achieve the following general goals:
At the end of the first three years (1st cycle) the students will acquire a solid base instruction comprising not only the essential scientific and engineering skills, but also a wideband fundamental knowledge in several domains of informatics, although not specialized. This first step can be understood mainly as a mobility level to and from other national and european schools.
At the five years integrated cycle conclusion the graduated students will exhibit an advanced instruction in Informatics and Computation Engineering, comprising a specialization area or a deep broader range of interests. In the last two years the student has an extensive subject offer, individually configurable.
At present possible specializations include:
Considering the multiple job functions and career opportunities open to MIEIC graduates we can mention the following:
Typical FEUP Informatics Engineers employers include:
Start in the first semester. After three years they can have a non professional Batchelor's degree (Licenciado em Ciências da Engenharia - orientação em Engenharia Informática e Computação) which confers mobility. After the five years integrated cycle they can obtain the Master's degree.
Start normally in the fourth year with some possible variation depending on the actual previous academic and professional curriculum and affinity. Actually, students admitted through this path may require from 1 to 5 semesters (30 to 150 ECTS) to complete MIEIC and obtain the Master's degree.
