Professional Master Courses are post-graduate courses designed to offer scientific specialisation and advanced training to students or professionals who want to obtain new qualifications. The courses provide professional knowledge and skill at a technical and operational or project level.
Professional Master Courses are either first or second level:
Each has a duration of at least 1 year with different start dates and entry procedures. Admission is restricted to a limited number of participants to ensure the personal guidance of professors and tutors. Selection is conducted through interviews and/or other forms of evaluation. All instructions regarding application can be found in the Masters calls for applications published online in September.
At the end of the course participants receive a diploma of academic qualification of either first or second level.
To obtain the diploma students must earn at least 60 credits, on top of the credits already obtained during the Bachelor’s degree (180 credits) or the Specialist/Master's degree (300 credits). Objectives and programmes of the Master are determined by the department or faculty offering the course. Master courses can be organised in collaboration with public or private institutions.
The programme consists of lectures, individual study, tutorials, laboratory work, and conclude, as a rule, with an internship in a relevant institution or company. There may be periodic assessments to verify students’ progress, in addition to a final exam at the end of the course. Attendance is mandatory and students must not be concurrently enrolled in any other university course (undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, or other master courses).
The Master serves to develop and expand previously acquired knowledge and convert it into practical professional skills but can also deepen and strengthen skills developed through work experience. Therefore graduates already in the workforce can participate in and benefit greatly from the experience.
