European MSc in Computational Logic: Scholarships available

European Master’s Programme in Computational Logic (EMCL)

EMCL provides the theoretical and practical knowledge required for professional practice in the wide interdisciplinary field having its roots in artificial intelligence, computer science, logic, linguistics and cognitive science.
You will learn how to develop programs that enable computers to display behaviour that can be characterised as intelligent.

EMCL is an international 2-years study program completely in English offering a joint MSc degree within a consortium composed by four universities and a research centre:

	•	Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
	•	Technische Universität Dresden, Germany
	•	Technische Universität Wien, Austria
	•	Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal
	•	Data61, Australia

Tuition fees amount to €450 per semester; there are several scholarships from 1,840€ to 2,840€ available, depending on the choice of the second year specialisation. The EMCL online application system will be open from 1 April until 31 May 2017.

The Computer Science Degree Hub characterises a career in computational logic and artificial intelligence as involving automation, robotics, advanced knowledge representation systems, and the use of sophisticated computer software and programs. Candidates interested in pursuing jobs in this field require specific education based on foundations of formal methods, information technology, logic, and computer engineering perspectives. Written and verbal communication skills are also important to convey how artificial intelligence tools and services are effectively applied within industry settings. From its inception in the 1950’s through the present day, computational logic and artificial intelligence continues to advance and improve the quality of life across multiple application areas. As a result, professionals with the right skills to translate digital bits of information into meaningful human experiences will find a career in computational logic and artificial intelligence to be sustaining and rewarding. The EMCL programme is designed to let graduates acquire these skills. The EMCL has graduated since its beginning in 2004 more than 150 students, with virtually full employment after graduation; more than 100 EMCL graduates are currently working in academia or research.
