About

Engineering of Data-intensive Intelligent Software Systems at Åbo Akademi University is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programme jointly delivered by Åbo Akademi University, University of the Balearic Islands, University of L’Aquila and Mälardalen University.

Overview

In the age of data explosion, scientists are dealing with massive magnitude of unstructured, complex data which contain unprecedented amount of decrypted information which in turn can facilitate the breakthrough data-driven discoveries and predictions. At the same time software and system engineers focus their attention on the engineering process of software, therefore collecting requirements and building system architectures that, more and more, deal with data collections and management.

Engineering of Data-intensive Intelligent Software Systems at Åbo Akademi University promises to bridge this gap by bringing together data scientists and software engineers in order to engineer data-intensive intelligent software systems.

EDISS will educate experts who can masterfully integrate data science and ML solutions into software and system engineering processes.

Key Features

EDISS is a two-year programme (120 ECTS) based on the collaboration between four university partners. Åbo Akademi University is the entry university for all students and in the second year the students will follow their individual mobility path within one of the three specializations provided by EDISS. For each student the choice of the second-year institution will be decided, in the second semester of the first year, by the EDISS selection committee based on the student’s list of preferences, his or her academic performance and the teaching staff input.

All students completing the EDISS programme will obtain a double master’s degree from Åbo Akademi University and the institution chosen for the second-year specialization. 

All graduate students will receive a Master of Science degree (Technology) in Computer Engineering from Åbo Akademi University and one of the following degrees depending on the institution chosen for the second-year specialization:

  • Master of Science in Computer Science or Master of Science in Computer Science with specialization in Software Engineering (depending on the chosen courses) from Mälardalen University 
  • Master's degree in Intelligent Systems from University of the Balearic Islands
  • Master's degree in Computer Science from University of L'Aquila

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The first-year courses focus on building strong theoretical tools for the students to be able to master the skills, techniques and requirements of the second-year specialization. The hosting university for all studies during the first year of the programme is Åbo Akademi University, Finland.
  • During the first semester of this second year, students will receive the required formal training needed for carrying out their master thesis as well as training on research methodology. During the last semester of their studies, the students will focus on implementing their master thesis work.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • A Bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree (at least 180 ECTS) from an accredited university, in Computer Science, Software Engineering or equivalent subjects. 
  • EDISS requires knowledge of basic computer science, software engineering, and applied mathematics. The student should be able to solve basic computer science problems, to build a given software artefact (e.g., a requirements model, a design model), to improve and fix a given design.
  • The student should be eager to learn new technologies and methods, instead of only working with technologies or methods they have prior knowledge of, and capable of sharing and producing knowledge in a team.
