Integrated Master in Computer Science

The Integrated Master in Computer Science and Informatics (MIEI), a 3+2 year integrated program (shaped after the Bologna model and the FCT UNL Curricular profile).  The MIEI targets the education of conception level engineers able to act in the fields of IT,  Computer Science,  and related areas. The MIEI at NOVA is  an excellent route to a high-performing career in the informatics industry.

In July 2017,  after an evaluation  by the National Engineering Council (Ordem dos Engenheiros),  the program received the quality stamp EUR-ACE®  ; this certification is awarded by the ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education)  and is valid for 6 years.


The 1st cycle provides a formal degree of "Licenciatura em Ciência e Engenharia Informática" a first certification at the BSc level, and it is followed by the 2nd cycle towards the "Mestrado Integrado em Engenharia Informática", completing the MSc level education in Infornatics Engineering at the E3 professional accreditation level of Ordem dos Engenheiros.

  • 1º cycle (3 years) yields the BSc "Licenciatura em Ciência e Engenharia Informática"

  • 2º cycle (2 years) concludes the MSc "Mestrado Integrado em Engenharia Informática"

Mobility students originating from engineering first cycles in the Computer Science / Informatics areas or equivalent can apply directly to the 2nd Cycle of MIEI (4th year)  (admission subject to CV appreciation).
