The European Masters Program in Computational Logic is an international distributed Master of Science course, in cooperation with the computer science departments in the following universities:
Within this program, completely in English, students will spend the first semester of the first year at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), the second semester of the first year at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (FUB), and the second year in one of the 4 partner universities chosen by the student. It is possible to spend 3 months at the National ICT Australia (NICTA) Research Centre of Excellence, which gives the possibility to work on a project at one of the world’s leading research centers. After this, the student will obtain a joint European Master of Science degree.
The course consists of basic and advanced modules, a Project, and a Master theses, for a total of 120 ECTS credits. The basic modules are offered by the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (FUB). The advanced modules for the first and the second year of the degree, the project, and the thesis, are offered by each of the 4 partner university, and they reflect the teaching and research specialisation of each site.
The European Masters Program in Computational Logic is one of the few European Masters of Science awarded since its first year of existence in 2004 by the European Union’s Erasmus Mundus programme. The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world by supporting European top-quality Masters Courses.
The European Masters Program in Computational Logic is sponsored scientifically by the European Network of Excellence on Computational Logic (CoLogNET), the European Association of Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the IBM Center for Advanced Studies (IBM-CAS), the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI), the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA), the Italian Association for Informatics (AICA, member of the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies), the Italian Association for Logic and its Applications (AILA), and the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).
Tuition fees are 3.000 EUR (for non-European students) and 1.000 (for European students) per year.
The program offers many scholarships together with tuition/enrolment fee waivers. More information on the scholarship program is available from:
