STUDY PLAN SUMMARY (.PDF)

The study plan is worth 60 ECTS and is taught in two 30-ECTS semesters. There are two possible itineraries (Note 1):

  • Standalone itinerary.

    This is the one-year programme that leads to the obtention of the Official Master's Degree in Systems and Services Engineering for the Information Society.

    The first semester provides a common base training while the second semester offers more specialization, finishing with the development of a Master Thesis.

  • EIT Digital itinerary. (Note 2)

    The MSSEIS programme is integrated as a second year of a double Master's Degree offered by the EIT Digital Master School, called "Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA)", which includes a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Specifically, MSSEIS constitutes the specialization on "Technologies for Internet Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing".

    After studying one year in one European University and a second year in another, the student gets the two local Master degrees plus the EIT Digital certificate.

 

(Note 1) There are other itineraries that are specific to the Double Degree agreements. Please see more information on these DD agreements by visiting the menu "International Double Degree agreements / Acuerdos internacionales de doble título".

(Note 2) The specificities of this itinerary can be found under the menu "EIT Digital Master School".
