  • Duration: 1.5 years
  • Methodology: Semi classroom-based
  • Type: Inter-departmental
  • Place:
    • School of Engineering and Technology. Computer Engineering Section
  • Academic direction:
  • The basic design objective of this course is for computer engineering graduates to be able to supplement their academic training and discover the latest and most important techniques in the field of professional computing and their applications. The factor that differentiates this course is the emphasis on standard, free and open source technologies because of both the important role that they have acquired as a kind of back-bone in the ICT sector and because of the value added that this represents in learning the contents taught. This approach has been mainstreamed to all the subjects that comprise the Master
  • Graduates of this master will be able to undertake professional roles such as: ICT Director, leading projects, teams and organisations of the ICT sector within a company, Software engineer, managing the process of developing applications to guarantee quality, usability and satisfaction of users. Systems architect, designing distributed applications or assessing the performance of networks and systems. Information systems consultant, advising on strategy in information technologies, the distribution of multi-media contents on internet or the management of I.T. security. Computer scientists developing intensive computing applications, simulations of real systems or applying artificial intelligence techniques to solving complex problems
    General skills
    • Know how to apply the knowledge acquired and be able to resolve problems in new or little-known environments within broader (or multi-disciplinary) contexts related to the area of study
    • Be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of forming judgements from information that, while incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to applying that knowledge and those opinions
    • Know how to communicate conclusions and the knowledge and final reasons that underpin them to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously
    • Have the learning abilities to allow them to continue studying in a largely self-guided and autonomous manner

    Specific skills
    • Know and know how to apply how the free software and open source systems work in their legal, regulatory and economic aspects in relation to: licensing, legal status in the framework of intellectual property legislation and its implications for business and development models
    • Understand, assess and apply tools, resources in the framework of architectures, networks, components, services and standards in systems and free environments
    • Understand, design, assess and apply technologies, tools, resources, standards in the framework of software development and its roll-out in free systems and environments

  • The access profile for students is an engineer or graduate in computing, Technical engineer in computing or graduate in computer engineering and access will not be granted to the course from any qualification that does not comply with the conditions set forth in the ruling of 8th June 2009
