In our Master Programmes a set of common mandatory courses ensures the delivery of fundamental competences, while curriculum-specific mandatory and optional courses convey specialist knowledge.
The Master in Computational Data Science (active from 2018/19) offers two curricula:
The Master in Computer Science (active until 2017/18) offers two curricula:
Each Master student has an individual Study Plan Advisors / Tutor.
Study Plan Advisors / Tutors are researchers of the Faculty that help you to get information and take decisions related to their study career. More details can be found under Tutoring.
When you enrol to the study course, you have to choose one of the two Curricula.
Should you wish to change to a different Curriculum, you may do so within your first year of study.
You have to use the following forms and the changes must be approved by your Tutor and by the Degree Course Committee:
You choose your optional courses from the lists of mandatory optional courses available for the current academic year. If you need help in the selection, you can consult your Tutor / Study Plan Advisor.
Before each exam session, you can add or delete the optional courses from your study plan by yourself in your Cockpit.
You will receive an e-mail when the compilation of the study plan opens.
Only after you have added the course to your study plan you will be able to enrol to its exam (see Exams enrolment and cancellation).
Students with an Individual Study Plan
If you have an Individual Study Plan, you have to make sure that the optional exams you choose are compatible with your approved Individual Study Plan; otherwise you have to ask your Tutor / Study Plan Advisor to change your Individual Study Plan accordingly.
"Free Choice" Credit points are the perfect opportunity to deepen your specialization, explore unusual facets of computer science or make up for gaps in your previous academic preparation. Therefore we invite you to consult your Tutor when making your choice.
To achieve your "Free Choice" Credit Points, you can choose:
If you choose lectures of the Faculty of Computer Science:
If you choose lectures of another Faculty:
If you choose an Internship:
Free Choice courses offered by the Euregio Universities
For their Free Choice credits students may also choose courses offered at the University of Trento and at the University of Innsbruck.
NB: Due to the different structure of the programs, courses may not fit perfectly into the credit structure.
This is the list of courses that the Degree Course Committee has selected as suitable:
An overview of the courses at the University of Trento can be found here.
An overview of the courses at the University of Innsbruck is available here.
You have the possibility to discuss your study plan or propose exam recognitions.
If you already took courses of your chosen Master curriculum during your Bachelor, you must always contact your Tutor / Study Plan Advisor in order to discuss the substitution of these courses.
Modifications of the regular study plan other that the one mentioned above mean that you leave the curriculum and switch to an Individual Study Plan, which then you must strictly follow.
All modifications to the study plans, Individual Study Plans and exam recognitions have to be agreed upon with the Tutor / Study Plan Advisor and approved by the Degree Committee of the Master.
You can ask your Tutor / Study Plan Advisor to modify your Individual Study Plans (add, delete or change exams) twice a year:
If you enroled before 2018/19, you are enrolled in our previous Master in Computer Science. Some lectures might not be offered any more, but you still have the right to pass all the exams of your original study plan. If you plan to take an exam, please contact the Faculty Secretariat at the beginning of the semester: this allows us to let you have all the necessary information and organise the exam.
Please contact us also for all other questions on Study Plans and Study Career. Changes of Study Plan can be made with the approval of the Degree Programme Committee.
If you have not taken many exams, we strongly encourage you to switch to our new Master in Computational Data Science: previous exams will be recognised as favourably as possible.
For general information see the Manifesto of Studies of your enrolment year below:
Students enroled from 2004/05 to 2008/09
If you enroled from 2004/05 to 2008/09, you are studying under the previous university legislation (DM 509/99). Please contact the Faculty Secretariat for questions on Study Plans and Study Career.
