The Master degree is characterised by an advanced core in Electrical and Computer Engineering and up-to-date specialised courses addressing the needs of a large amount of professionals and organisations. The huge amount of fields covered by the different dissertations deserves a special mention. A list of dissertations can be found at the MEEC Web site.
The Master degree on Electrical and Computer Engineering is organised in several courses running in two semesters and a Master Dissertation.
Each student has to be approved in eight courses, six being from the selected specialisation area, and the other two from a set of transversal courses. The next step is the submission of a dissertation.
A Master dissertation is essentially a research work supervised by a Professor of the Master Degree.
Approval in the two semesters courses entitles the student to the Diploma degree.
