2nd Cycle

Master in Computer Science

The Master in “Informatics” aims to build and deepen knowledge in emerging areas within Informatics and Multimedia such as virtualization, cloud computing and application development for mobile devices.

In this sense, the general objectives of the study cycle are the development and deepening of skills in computer and information systems in an innovation and research oriented perspective, as well as contributing to the promotion of advanced digital skills with active learning methodologies applied to the software development of technological projects in the areas of Computer Science and Multimedia.

Thus, and since this is an area that is a development driver in the most advanced economies, we will seek to enhance technological development and innovation of companies and organizations through advanced qualification/re-qualification of their staff and agents.
