Studies Master in Information and Computer Science

About profiles

Each profile has a set of required courses and a set of related (optional) courses associated with it. A student realises a profile if she/he has successfully validated all the required courses in a profile.

To obtain the master degree, a student must realise at least one profile. By limiting the number of required courses in each semester we ensure that the student can pursue multiple profiles if she/he desires so.

Note that the set of profiles is not static. Indeed additional profiles may be introduced to accommodate student, professor or industry needs.
