Introduction

This Master’s degree programme strikes a balance between “soft skills” and scientific/technical skills as well as between high quality research and practical field work. It offers

  • the study of computer science based on fundamental concepts, the value of which goes beyond rapidly evolving technology;
  • a programme taught entirely in English to improve students’ language skills (technical written and spoken English);
  • exchange programs and dual degrees in Belgium, Europe and throughout the world.

As with the Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, this programme seeks to train well-rounded engineers by offering majors in related disciplines such as applied math, or electronics and communication.

Your profile

You would like to

  • imagine, design and implement computer systems that will shape the future;
  • focus on computer science and engineering after having studied science and technology (math, mechanics, electricity, chemistry, etc.) as an undergraduate student;
  • improve your theoretical knowledge and develop technical skills;
  • increase your interdisciplinary knowledge in areas such as foreign languages, resource management, teamwork, autonomy and ethics;
  • expand your training to include management and small and medium sized business creation;
  • take advantage of a programme taught entirely in English.

 

Your future job

We train

  • scientists who know how to investigate a sharp problematic using scientific literrature in the field;
  • professionals who will design information systems that correspond to user needs;
  • innovators who can master a wide range of technology and record its progress;
  • specialists capable of implementing software solutions with particular attention to product quality and the development process.

 

Your programme

This Master’s degree consists of:

  • a compulsory part providing the knowledge necessary to model and design complex applications
  • a major of your choice that allows you to acquire cutting edge knowledge in an area of interest
  • at the heart of computer sciences: artificial intelligence, computer networks, cryptography and information security, software engineering, and system programming;
  • at the frontier with other engineering sciences: communication networks, applied mathematics and data science, biomedical engineering, and bioinformatics;
  • beyond computer science: management and small and medium sized business creation;
  • elective courses that allow you to focus your training on your areas of interest, whether they be computer science or any other discipline (electricity, management, business creation, languages);
  • a graduation project (representing half your workload during the last year) offers the possibility to discuss a subject in-depth. Due to its size and scope, this project allows for an initiation into the working life of computer scientists and/or researchers. The project’s subject is selected in consultation with the programme heads and possibly a company.
