Master Information Systems - Máster en Sistemas Informáticos
The course contains three pathways or themes which enable you to specialise your studies in contemporary information systems, enterprise-wide information systems, and application development. Your course project consolidates the taught subjects of the course, while giving you the opportunity to pursue in-depth study in your chosen area. Teaching methods include lectures, student-led activity and smaller, instructor-led groups. Your course work will range from presentations and group investigations to software development or research review.
You are expected to have a good Honours degree (at least a Lower Second) from a UK university (or overseas equivalent) in an IT or computing discipline, or in another discipline that is either closely related to IT or computing (eg economics and business studies), or provides important underpinning for/insight into it (eg sciences or engineering). You may also be considered according to work experience and other qualifications. If your first language is not English you will need an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent.
