Started in the academic year 2013/2014. The minimum number of credits to obtain the Bachelor’s degree is 180 (3 years) and for MIEI Master Degree is 300 (5 years), a 3+2 year integrated program (shaped after the Bologna model and the FCT UNL Curricular profile). The Master is accredited by the Ordem dos Engenheiros and the FEANI (European Federation of National Engineering Associations) in order to assign the EUR ING title (European Engineer).
The Integrated Master in Computer Engineering aims to form Engineers able to design, to develop project activities, to leadership and to innovate, also, in the context of research, building the bases to access to the 3rd cycle.
The MIEI targets the education of conception level engineers able to act in the fields of IT, Computer Science and related areas. The MIEI at NOVA is an excellent route to a high-performing career in the informatics industry
The 1st cycle provides a formal degree of Licenciatura em Ciência e Engenharia Informática a first certification at the BSc level and it is followed by the 2nd cycle towards the Mestrado Integrado em Engenharia Informática completing the MSc level education in Informatics Engineering at the E3 professional accreditation level of the Engineering Board.
Computer science is a supporting technology (enabling technology) essential to contemporary society, so Software Engineer are essential in all companies and organizations linked to the development of services, systems and products, in particular those operating in the field of information technology:
Integrated training in Computer Engineering FCT NOVA is accredited by the Ordem dos Engenheiros at an E2 level.
