Presentation of the study program
Strengths
  • Computer systems and computing technology are part of just about everything that touches our lives, from the cars we drive, to the movies we watch and to the activities required by our jobs. The "Master of Computer Engineering" program produces highly qualified specialists in the field of computer engineering, able to develop efficient solutions to the increasingly complex problems of tomorrow's computing systems.
  • Graduates of the "Master of Computer Engineering" program gain advanced knowledge, skills and abilities to design, develop, implement and maintain computing systems and digital control equipment, for the most diverse application areas, using the most recent technologies in the field. At the same time, the graduates gain particular skills to critically analyze, innovate and research, together with advanced abilities of communication, interdisciplinary cooperation and team project management.
  • Graduates of the "Master of Computer Engineering" program are on high demand on the computing and IT market, both in Romania and in most developed industrial countries in the world.
Admission type Admission interview
Curriculum and the list of courses with their syllabus The curriculum is structured into two categories of courses:
  • Breadth Coverage (BC) courses: present, at an advanced level, core areas of computer engineering knowledge and major topics related to computer engineering
  • Advanced Electives (AE): permit individual choices of specialization from a variety of subjects of high interest in computer engineering

These courses are supplemented by a thread which develops research skills, starting with the Research Topics in Computer Systems course and continuing with directed research leading up to the final Master Dissertation Project, to be developed over the entire 4th semester.
