Our master degree program has been developed in close cooperation with industry partners and aims not only to develop student's understanding of the concepts of Information Technology, but also to enhance their transferable skills in areas such as research, problem solving, critical thinking and independent learning. A strong emphasis is placed on the integration of theoretical and practical elements of the program, e.g. case studies and realistic development scenarios.
