Students develop research projects with an international group of researchers, and have access to high qualified interdisciplinary laboratories and cutting-edge research technologies.
These include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), magnetic encephalography (MEG), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), electroencephalography (EEG), eye tracking, cinematic motion tracking, psychophysics, computational modeling, & comparative cognition (animal models) for the Cognitive Neuroscience track; and for the Language and Multimodal Interaction track, machine learning technologies, like deep learning and multitask learning, will be applied to language understanding in interaction with other modalities.
Our students come from all continents and, after graduation, find positions in their home countries and elsewhere.
Though the programme is relatively young, its strength is already evident in the satisfaction reported by students and in their high and successful placement after graduation. A recent survey conducted on 60 graduates of the programme showed that 88,3% of them are currently employed either in industry or in academic research management (both clinical and non-clinical), software development, communication and consulting.
The Master in Cognitive Science offers a unique opportunity for students aiming to train as scientists. It provides access to doctoral courses in the disciplines of cognitive neuroscience worldwide. CIMeC itself offers a PhD Course in Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
