This Master in Computer Science and Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) strikes a balance between “soft skills” and scientific/technical skills as well as between high quality research and practical field work. 


It offers

  • the study of computer science based on fundamental concepts, the value of which goes beyond rapidly evolving technology;
  • a programme taught entirely in English to improve students’ language skills (technical written and spoken English);
  • exchange programs and dual degrees in Belgium, Europe and throughout the world.

As with the Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, this Master in Computer Science and Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) seeks to train well-rounded engineers by offering majors in related disciplines such as applied math, or electronics and communication.

Your future job

We train:

  • scientists who know how to investigate a sharp problematic using scientific literrature in the field;
  • professionals who will design information systems that correspond to user needs;
  • innovators who can master a wide range of technology and record its progress;
  • specialists capable of implementing software solutions with particular attention to product quality and the development process.


Your programme

This Master’s degree consists of:

  • compulsory part providing the knowledge necessary to model and design complex applications
  • a major of your choice that allows you to acquire cutting edge knowledge in an area of interest
  • at the heart of computer sciences: artificial intelligence, computer networks, cryptography and information security, software engineering, and system programming;
  • at the frontier with other engineering sciences: communication networks, applied mathematics and data science, biomedical engineering, and bioinformatics;
  • beyond computer science: management and small and medium sized business creation;
  • elective courses that allow you to focus your training on your areas of interest, whether they be computer science or any other discipline (electricity, management, business creation, languages);
  • graduation project (representing half your workload during the last year) offers the possibility to discuss a subject in-depth. Due to its size and scope, this project allows for an initiation into the working life of computer scientists and/or researchers. The project’s subject is selected in consultation with the programme heads and possibly a company.
