Master’s degree from the Faculty of Informatics
The Faculty of Informatics currently offers five Master's degrees:
- Master of Science in Informatics
- Master of Science in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science
- Master of Science in Embedded Systems Design *
- Master of Science in Applied Informatics **
- Master of Science in Management and Informatics ***
In collaboration with Politecnico di Milano the faculty proposes the unique opportunity to spend a period of time as study abroad aimed at achieving a double Master's Degree.
All master programmes consist of four semesters full-time study (120 ECTS). They start with a semester of foundational courses (30 ECTS), followed by two semesters of advanced courses (60 ECTS), and finish with a substantial Master's thesis (30 ECTS).
The Master of Science in Informatics allows students to specialize in one of the seven research areas, covered by our professors:
- Computer Systems
- Geometric and Visual Computing
- Information Systems
- Intelligent Systems
- Programming Languages
- Software Engineering
- Theory and Algorithms
A specialization is obtained by writing the Master's thesis and taking 18 ECTS of courses in the respective area.

(**) This programme is a professional area of specialization, offered jointly with the Department of Innovative Technologies of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland. It stretches over three semesters (90 ECTS) and concludes with a Master's project (24 ECTS) instead of the Master's thesis.
(***) This programme is offered in collaboration with the Faculty of Economics.
