Erasmus Mundus MSc in Advanced Systems Dependability Scholarships
A unique, two-year Joint Master programme, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Msc in Advanced Systems Dependability (DEPEND) is offered by Maynooth University in Ireland, the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (UK), and the Université de Lorraine in Nancy (France).
The course provides students with the knowledge, skill, and in-depth technical understanding of the key topics of safety, reliability, availability, and security of software-based systems.
This is achieved by bringing together the theory and practice of software development through research projects and work experience in both industrial and research settings.
Students attend two of the three universities during the course, spending one year at each.
Annual summer schools are an important element of the course, and these take place at a different university each year.
The 120 ECTS course consists of taught modules, projects & dissertations, experiential learning activities (work placements), and opportunities to explore the culture of each country.
On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a Joint M.Sc. degree by a consortium of the three universities; the course is accredited in all three countries.
The DEPEND programme is intended for a small number of highly-qualified, highly-motivated international students.
In order to maintain a good professor/student ratio, approximately 30 students will be selected for entry to the course each year.
Courses are taught through English only.
The admission are criteria are:
A high honours degree in Computer Science, or a closely related discipline (with a grade equivalent to a II.1, B, or assez bien);
Non-native speakers of English must provide proof of an acceptable knowledge of English (for example, IELTS of at least 6.5, or equivalent).
