Ingenieurwissenschaften befassen sich mit der praktischen Anwendung und Weiterentwicklung naturwissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse. Neben technologischen Grundlagen werden Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften in der Regel Mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliche Grundlagen (z.B. Mathematik, Physik, Chemie) und Grundlagen im Bereich Entwicklung, Konstruktion und Produktion vermittelt. Immer häufiger sind auch wirtschaftliche Fächer (z.B. Betriebswirtschaftslehre) Bestandteil eines Ingenieurstudiums.
Klassische Ingenieursdisziplinen sind Bauingenieurwesen, Maschinenbau, Verfahrenstechnik (Chemieingenieurwesen) und Elektrotechnik. Daneben gibt es unzählige, spezialisierte Studiengänge, die sich auf spezielle Fachrichtungen spezialisieren. Außerdem gibt es zunehmend interdisziplinäre Studiengänge wie z.B. Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen oder Mechatronik, die den geänderten Anforderungen in der Industrie gerecht werden. Da die Industrie einen kontinuierlichen Bedarf an gut ausgebildeten Ingenieuren hat, sind die Berufsaussichten für Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften weiterhin überdurchschnittlich hoch.
This Master programme is a continuation of the Bachelor studies as a first step towards the PhD . MICS starts with an orientation meeting where all new students get to know the professors and other students.
This Master’s degree covers the whole chain of quantitative finance, from theoretical aspects to the application in a professional setting. This Master draws on the recognized excellence of our engineering school in quantitative finance, and makes great use of the collaborations with the Universities of Paris-Dauphine and Cergy-Pontoise.
The MSc in ICT Strategic Management benefits from the unique combination of the UPF Department of Information and Communication Technologies (listed amongst the top 100 in the world by the Shanghai Ranking '09) and the UPF Department of Economics and Business (among the 50 best centres for economics in the world by the Tilburg Economics Ranking) together with the practical knowledge of experienced professionals.
The aim of the Applied Informatics study programme is to prepare high level information technology (IT) professionals being able to use the acquired knowledge, to gain new knowledge via self-education, to predict new tendencies in technology development, to adequately select and apply strategically important technologies
The Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) launched the Architecture course in 1998 with the purpose of training architects in a culture of rigour, with high technical knowledge, enabling them to establish an effective dialogue with other experts with whom they must interact in order to develop architecture projects without, however, neglecting the artistic and cultural component. The study plan is developed around the architecture project and includes the areas of basic sciences, architectural culture and technologies.
The distance learning programme Master Architectural Lighting and Design Management will be offered by the Hochschule Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design. The aim of the long distance course is to comprehensively train lighting designers. The highly regarded qualifications and skills gained through this degree, offer graduates the opportunity to work in many relating fields. The central capability of a lighting designer, regardless of dealing with daylight or artificial light, is to design the interactions between architecture and light.
The MSc in Professional Science is an innovative masters degree course designed to allow you to pursue advanced training in science, while simultaneously developing business and workplace skills highly valued by employers. This qualification enables you to explore scientific topics at postgraduate level and also have an interest in how science relates to the world of business. Most modules are taught, but there is also a compulsory project module where you will undertake a substantial piece of independent research which links science and professional skills.
The second cycle in Territorial Engineering - awarding the degree of Master in Territorial Engineering - allows for the exercise of the profession of engineer, notably in terms of conception and design, and particularly in what concerns the territory and infrastructure planning.
This course combines practical and theoretical sessions to allow you to study the selection and use of techniques for the design of quality software systems. You will apply your knowledge and practical skills to develop proficiency at using state-of-the-art software engineering practices.
The main objective of the Master in Energy Engineering and Management is to provide cross training in this area of expertise, ensuring a sound scientific basis for the competences required for professional qualification in the energy field.
The Integrated Master Programme in Civil Engineering seeks to offer sound and overarching training, allowing students to be highly adaptable throughout their professional life, according to the needs of the contemporary market, which will result in a high degree of qualified employment after they leave the IST.
The master’s programme is based on the fundamentals imparted in the bachleor’s programme in Environmental Engineering. The duration of the studies is 4 semesters. The curriculum offers a wide range of elective courses from the areas of water, transport and geo-information.
