The Master on Information Science (MCI) is the result of adapting to the Bologna Process the Master on Information Management (MGI), that FEUP has been offering from 1997/98 to 2006/07.
MCI is a joint initiative of the Engineering (FEUP) and Humanities (FLUP) faculties and aims at deepening the knowledge and competences of Information Science graduates towards a professional specialization as well as envisaging a research career.
It also enables graduates from other scientific areas who got approved in at least 30 ECTS credits, corresponding to a minor in an area relevant for Information Science (for instance, Information Management, Archivistic, Library Science), to develop competences towards a professional career in the area of information organization and management.

MCI is organized in two semesters with courses followed by one year devoted to a specialized project or to the preparation of a dissertation, which may be developed in institutions other than the faculties promoting the program.
The numerus clausus is 20 students.
