Master in Advanced Computer Systems
The Master in Advanced Information Systems offers an interdisciplinary master structured in two specialties covering a large part of the research areas in Computer Science. Its basic objective is to guide the student in some of its research lines, maintaining a global vision and allowing a personal setting of the curriculum within the full range of courses.
The specialty called Artificial Intelligence and Natural Interaction includes content which fall into the Computer Science and addresses the principles, methods and applications of adaptive systems with intelligent behavior, including intelligent data processing, creation of intelligent systems for various areas, multimodal interaction, artificial perception, automatic classification and data mining.
The specialty Distributed Systems and Web includes content which fall into the Information Systems, Information Technology and Software Engineering. It is aimed at generating knowledge about current systems and information technologies and provide skills in developing applications for these systems, including the fundamentals of distributed systems, novel techniques of software engineering and its application, particularly in the Internet field.
Upon completion of the Masters in Advanced Information Systems, students will have acquired the skills necessary for a doctoral dissertation in some of the main areas covered by the two specialties. However, given the relevance and importance of the subjects taught, the direct integration of these students into the professional activity in this field is not discarded, thereby responding to the growing need for qualified researchers in the industry.
This qualification is recognised at level 3 in the Spanish Framework of Higher Education Qualifications (MECES) and corresponds to level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), according to Royal Decree 22/2015 of 23rd January 2015 (BOE Spanish Official Gazette 07/02/2015).
This is a research-oriented master that can be considered the previous step to doctorate studies.
