Students who choose this specialisation will learn to design complex computer systems that comply with critical efficiency, reliability and security requirements. They will acquire the knowledge to assess these requirements and recommend the most suitable hardware, programming languages and algorithms for specific solutions.
Have a look at the briefing of this specialisation:
Graduates with specialised training in Computing possess the knowledge and skills to design complex computer systems that comply with critical efficiency, reliability and security requirements, applicable to areas such as flight scheduling, the verification of ABS braking systems or the development of person-machine interfaces for next-generation mobile telephones. Social responsibility places greater focus on energy efficiency and economic efficiency, and IT professionals capable of working within these parameters are highly valued in a wide range of fields, including robotics and industrial process optimisation, financial product development and forecasting, public infrastructure planning, scientific experimentation and image processing in biomedical research centres, and video game and web application programming.
The growing need for innovation has increased the demand for professionals with the training and scientific rigour to join multidisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists or economists. Computing specialists are highly valued for their ability to innovate and to identify and guarantee the critical requirements of complex computer systems, which makes them ideal candidates to lead international companies at the forefront of this change in the IT industry.
