Communications Engineering and Data Science is a joint M.Sc. two years programme in the area of communications engineering and data science, offered by three European Partner Universities: Técnico Lisboa (University of Lisbon), with Aalto University and Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering.


Each Partner University will recruit students for the 1st year of the Communications Engineering and Data Science Programme according to their quota, following their usual admission processes; then, the students will go for the 2nd year of the Programme to another Partner University.  For instance, the student that enrols on Técnico Lisboa (University of Lisbon) in the 1st year will go to either Aalto University or Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering in the 2nd one.

Programme structure

The joint CoDaS M.Sc. Programme follows the Bologna Agreement recommendations, namely:

  • 2 years duration;
  • 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits in total, with 60 ECTS/year;
  •  M.Sc. Thesis with 30 ECTS;
  • common scientific areas in the degree structure during each year of the Programme.
Students completing the joint CoDaS M.Sc. Programme earn the degree Master of Engineering / Science.

The Partner Universities have signed Double Degree agreements, which means that the students completing the programme will obtain two diplomas: one from the home Partner University, where they have enrolled in the 1st year, and the other from the host Partner University, where they have performed the mobility in the 2nd year.  

Each Partner University will award graduated students with a Diploma from the M.Sc. recognised by the Double Degree agreements, together with the corresponding Certificate; in addition, each student will be also awarded a Supplement Certificate, signed by all Partners, establishing the Joint Unite! CoDaS Programme as the “European umbrella” for the degree.
