CoDaS (Master on 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.
Students completing the joint CoDaS M.Sc. Programme at Técnico Lisboa (University of Lisbon), earn a Double Degree: Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering, with the Specialisation Area in Networks and Communication Systems (optional courses are taken from the Master in Data Science and Engineering); the corresponding M.Sc. degree at Aalto University or Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering, depending where they take the 2nd year of studies.
The expertise gained through the joint CoDaS M.Sc. Programme features diverse programming skills, good mathematical background, goal-oriented problem solving, as well as efficient project planning and management. In particular, students will boast competences in:
The employability of graduates in these areas is very high at the European level, since there is a lack of human resources in the target domains in all European countries and even worldwide. Therefore, one can expect that the graduates will have no problems in finding a job, and even a good one at a country and industry of their choice. One can envisage companies and organisations hiring these graduates in need of technical human resources dealing with telecommunication networks (and especially 5G ones), Internet of Things, security, data analytics, automation and even artificial intelligence, among many others.
Hiring entities are all those dealing with the telecommunications sector, but extend to all other sectors where data analytics plays a major role, e.g.: telecom operators, telecom equipment manufacturers, telecom devices manufacturers, regulators, consultancies, software houses, service providers, utilities, investment banks, insurance companies, research centres, public administration and international agencies, among others.
