Project-based stream (MACS): The one-year project Master requires 8 graduate courses in Computer Science and a project. Two of the eight graduate courses can be replaced by graduate courses from another Faculty (approval required). The two-year project Master requires a list of specified undergraduate courses, graduate courses and a project. Graduate courses must fulfill the breadth requirement. The project report is submitted in writing and must be presented in a seminar forum before its approval by the supervisor and another faculty member.
