The program is a two year (120 credit) program leading to a Joint MSc degree. It consists of 3 semesters of courses and a 1 semester thesis project. Students are stimulated and assisted to carry out an internship.
Teaching is carried out by good quality staff of the organizing and other universities supplemented, by a pool of external experts from academia and industry. Students increase their self-learning ability culminating in a thesis that demonstrates their ability to integrate all their acquired knowledge and skills. The language of instruction of the entire program, courses and examination, is English.
