MASTER of SCIENCE in
     INFORMATION AND COMPUTER SCIENCES

     http://mics.uni.lu

     University of Luxemburg


GOALS

The Master of Science in Information & Computer Sciences (MICS) is 
geared towards the mastering of state-of-the-art and emerging 
technologies and prepares for research in specific domains. It 
emphasizes the importance of a long-term perspective and recognizes the 
need for solid theoretical foundations to pave the way for lifelong 
learning.

The mission of the University of Luxembourg (UL) is to be a 
research-driven university providing a high quality education at 
graduate level reflecting the local research strengths. The Master in 
Information & Computer Sciences mixes computer science, an area which 
already counts extensive research activities in Luxembourg, with 
interdisciplinary perspectives, e.g. towards biology, telecommunication 
and security/risk management.


STRONG POINTS

* Multidisciplinary nature
* Strong theoretical foundations combined with practically relevant 
specializations
* Team of dynamic professors with international background
* No tuition fees
* Scholarships available
* English classes taught in multilingual environment


BACKGROUND

In a world characterized by an increasing competition for minds, 
Luxembourg needs well-educated specialists able to deal with the 21st 
century challenges in information technology.

Of particular interest are those areas relevant for the local finance 
and media industry, for the large European administrations, as well as 
those reinforcing existing research strengths within the university. Notably

* Security and Trust systems
* Advanced Telecommunication Systems
* Computational Techniques for the Life Sciences
* Large Scale-processing of Data, Information and Knowledge
* Cost-effective Engineering of Complex Software-intensive Systems


ARCHITECTURE

The MICS is conceived as a flexible, typically four semester long 
programme accounting for 120 ECTS, each semester normally encompassing 
30 ECTS. The area of study is computer science, with a particular 
emphasis on innovative and interdisciplinary information technologies. 
There are five specializations exhibiting multiple synergies:

* Advanced Software Systems
* Bioinformatics
* Communicative Systems
* Intelligent and Adaptive Systems
* Security and Trust


ORGANIZATION OF THE CURRICULUM

In the 1st semester all students start the studies with the same Core 
Courses. The Core Courses are intended to complete and deepen the 
knowledge in major areas of Computer Science. By the end of the first 
semester the student chooses a specialization.  In the 2nd semester 
mostly mandatory Focused Core Courses will give the necessary background 
for a further specialization.  In the 3rd semester the student continues 
by choosing modules for the specialization. The studies are capped in 
the 4th semester by a Master Thesis that demonstrates the ability of the 
student to conduct independent research under guidance of a faculty 
member. The Master of Science in Computer Science will be performed 
completely in English.

ABOUT LUXEMBOURG

Luxembourg's present day cosmopolitan atmosphere enjoys a long 
tradition. Situated at the confluence of Romanic and German cultures, 
the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has always borrowed from both without ever 
losing its own identity. To live in Luxembourg is to live to the rhythm 
of a European capital and yet to be but a few minutes away from a 
landscape of sweeping forests, splendid views and many historical sites. 
Luxembourg is famous well beyond its borders for its natural beauty. It 
is also within easy driving distance of major European cities – e.g. 
Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, and Cologne are all within a 4 hour drive of 
Luxembourg.
