Master in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science

Standaard traject
Academiejaar 2017-2018
The standard track in the Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science (120 ECTS) consists out of 4 modules:
- Compulsory Core Courses (61 ECTS)
- 21 ECTS from the module 'Smart Cities' or the module 'Digital Health'
- 14 ECTS of elective courses from one or a combination of the following modules
Recommended elective courses (3-14 ECTS)
Option Entrepreneurship (0-12 ECTS)
Option Internship (0-6 ECTS)
- Master Thesis Applied Computer Science (24 ECTS)
Each of the modules should be succesfully completed to obtain the master degree. The student should respect the specified registration requirements. The Curriculum Board strongly suggests the student to follow the standard learning track. Only this model track can guarantee a timeschedule without overlaps of the compulsory course units. The Curriculum Board also strongly recommends to start with the introductory courses and to follow afterwards the advanced and specialised courses.
