Smart Systems

Qualification Requirements

The Program has two concentrations: the web systems and the smart systems. Both concentrations are comprised of a taught and a research/thesis part. The taught part consists of eight (8) courses, four (4) compulsory and four (4) specialization electives. The research part consists of the Research Methodologies and Thesis Proposal course and the Master Thesis.

The program structure and the course breakdown with respect to the ECTS allocation are given below.

A student successfully completes the Program and obtains the title of Master of Science in Web and Smart Systems when both the taught and research parts are completed and the 90 ECTS credits are accumulated. The duration of the MSc program will be 18 months (i.e. three semesters) for full time or 30 months (i.e. five semesters) for part time attendance. In the case where the students fail to complete their studies in the expected time, the duration of the studies can be extended. The extension time will be determined according to the internal Regulation of Frederick University, concerning Students’ Graduation.
