European Master in Computational Logic (EMCL)
The aim of the program is to provide profound theoretical and practical knowledge required for professional practice in artificial intelligence, computer science, logic, linguistics and cognitive science: you will learn how to develop programs that enable computers to display behaviour that can be characterised as intelligent.
The EMCL is an international study programme offering as a joint degree within a consortium composed of four universities:
Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (unibz)
Technische Universität Dresden (TUD)
Technische Universität Wien (TUW)
Universidade Nova de Lisboa (NOVA)
The objective of the EMCL programme is to train professionals acquainted with the individual disciplines of computational logic able to work according to scientific standards. To acquire in-depth knowledge, students may choose appropriate combinations of advanced courses from a vast catalogue offered by the four partner universities.
Students may focus on foundational research in the context of an ongoing research project at one of the partner universities, thereby being exposed to the state of the art in an academic field and actively contributing to its advancement. They may also focus on more application-oriented research in cooperation with industry, thereby being exposed to corporate culture and best practices in an enterprise context.
Structure of the course
In the first year students spend the first semester at the Technische Universität Dresden, Germany and the second semester at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. Courses aim at introducing students with the foundations of computational logic, but advanced courses can be selected as well.
Each year EMCL students organise a yearly workshop for all the students and lecturers where they exchange their experiences and present their research. The workshop is hosted by Lisboa or Wien universities, and there will be financial support for the travel.
Students have the opportunity of working on their project during a 3 months stage at Australia’s Data61, usually in the summer between the first and second year.
The consortium fosters the participation of students in summer schools and research conferences, and financial support is available for best performing students.
The Computer Science Degree Hub characterizes a career in computational logic and artificial intelligence as involving automation, robotics, advanced knowledge representation systems, and the use of sophisticated computer software and programs. Candidates interested in pursuing jobs in this field require specific education based on foundations of formal methods, information technology, logic, and computer engineering perspectives.
Written and verbal communication skills are also important to convey how artificial intelligence tools and services are effectively applied within industry settings. From its inception in the 1950’s through the present day, computational logic and artificial intelligence continues to advance and improve the quality of life across multiple application areas.
As a result, professionals with the right skills to translate digital bits of information into meaningful human experiences can find a career in computational logic and artificial intelligence to be sustaining and rewarding. The EMCL programme is designed to let graduates acquire these skills. The EMCL has graduated since its beginning in 2004 more than 150 students, with virtually full employment after graduation; more than 100 EMCL graduates are currently working in academia or research.
