Learning Outcomes

The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering has in-depth knowledge and understanding of 
1.     exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering. 
2.    integrated structural design methods in the framework of a global design strategy. 
3.     the advanced methods and theories to schematize and model complex problems or processes. 

The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering can 
4.     reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity).
5.     conceive, plan and execute a research project, based on an analysis of its objectives, existing knowledge and the relevant literature, with attention to innovation and valorization in industry and society. 
6.     correctly report on research or design results in the form of a technical report or in the form of a scientific paper. 
7.     present and defend results in a scientifically sound way, using contemporary communication tools, for a national as well as for an international professional or lay audience. 
8.     collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team. 
9.     work in an industrial environment with attention to safety, quality assurance, communication and reporting. 
10.     develop, plan, execute and manage engineering projects at the level of a starting professional. 
11.     think critically about and evaluate projects, systems and processes, particularly when based on incomplete, contradictory and/or redundant information. 

The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering has 
12.     a creative, problem-solving, result-driven and evidence-based attitude, aiming at innovation and applicability in industry and society. 
13.     a critical attitude towards one’s own results and those of others. 
14.     consciousness of the ethical, social, environmental and economic context of his/her work and strives for sustainable solutions to engineering problems including safety and quality assurance aspects. 
15.     the flexibility and adaptability to work in an international and/or intercultural context.
16.     an attitude of life-long learning as needed for the future development of his/her career.
The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science
17.     has a thorough understanding of the underlying physical principles and the functioning of electronic and photonic devices, of sensors and actuators and is able to use them to conceive information processing systems and more specifically end-to-end systems 
18.     is able to design and use systems for efficient storage, access and distribution of digital information 
19.     has knowledge of and is able to use advanced processing methods and tools for the analysis of (big) data in different application domains 
20.     is able to design (distributed) end-to-end systems and execute performance assessment of the designed product 
21.     has a thorough knowledge of programming concepts and can apply them in smart end-to-end-systems 
22.     has a thorough knowledge of hardware platforms, operating systems, firmware and their impact on smart end-to-end systems 
23.     is aware of data privacy and security aspects 
24.     is able to manage complex multidisciplinary projects on end-to-end systems and, as a consequence, can take educated, well-researched decisions on the technologies involved 
25.     has a profound knowledge of modeling and simulation of end-to-end systems including consideration for maintainability, reliability and adaptability 
26.     can apply his/her acquired knowledge and skills for designing smart city, digital health, or digital earth end-to-end dedicated systems. 
27.     is aware of and critical about the impact of ICT on society.
