    This Master's programme is intended for Graduates in Computer Engineering (5 years), Computer Engineers (3 years) or equivalent degrees. However, holders of other degree courses and degrees that are not Bologna compliant will also be taken into account. In such cases, students will be subject to taking the necessary credits of complementary subjects to complete their training.
