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. 

Master in Computer Science and Engineering

The Master's Degree in Computer Science and Engineering is a two-year 2nd cycle of studies aimed at training Engineers qualified to intervene in the areas of Computer Science and Information Technologies, compatible with the Bologna principles.

The flexible course structure of NOVA School of Science and Technology | FCT NOVA allows to combine courses according to students' interests, guaranteeing a solid advanced training, complemented by specialization in one or more areas.

 With full employability, IT Engineers at NOVA School of Science and Technology | FCT NOVA hold leadership positions in leading companies in the areas of Information and Communication Technologies, developing careers with recognized international projection and creating innovative companies that operate in the global market.

Master in Analysis and Engineering of Big Data

The Master's Degree in Analysis and Engineering of Big Data (MAEBD) aims to train specialists at the level of a 2nd cycle of studies in the emerging field of Data Science and Data Engineering, and is intended for candidates with a background at the level of a 1st cycle of studies including coverage of mathematical and programming fundamentals.

The course develops competencies on techniques and methods for processing and analysis of large volumes of data by advanced computational and mathematical methods, and methodologies to seek and find necessary answers to management, monitoring and optimization processes, or extract knowledge, trends, correlations, or predictions, in particular building on machine learning.

The goals of the course are aligned with the "National Digital Competence Initiative e.2030", in the areas of specialisation (item qualification and creation of added value in economics) and research (big data item).
