Members of ALDAPA teach several courses in masters' degree at University of the Basque Country.
The Official Masters Degree in "Embedded Systems Engineering" (MOISE) has come about due to the collaboration of: the Department of Computer Architecture and Technology of the Faculty of Information Technology ; and the Polytechnic University College of Donostia-San Sebastian. The Masters forms part of the Postgraduate Information and Communications Technology Programme of the University of the Basque Country (Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea).The Masters counts with the collaboration of a number of institutions and companies (G.A.I.A., Ikusi, Ikerlan, Grupo Jema, Traintic, ULMA Embedded Solutions, Fagor, Fatronik, General Electric). An embedded system is a system designed using hardware and software components in one single module for an application. It thus aims to achieve high performance and great flexibility at relatively low costs and moderate consumption. As it is the latest in information technology this type of system is used in many areas: mobile communications or specific control systems (home, automotive, aviation). This type of system usually has to confront real-time problems; in other words, it is often not sufficient that the actions are performed correctly, but they also have to be executed within a set time period. A large part of the effort in RDI in the area of embedded systems is performed in the industries of the aforementioned areas (mobile telephones, electro-domestic, automotive, railways, aeroplanes, etc.) in order to meet their specific requirements in a market with exponential growth.
The Master's degree focuses in the research line in computer science and information technologies defined by the research groups that support it, and whose excelence has been acknowledged by the Viceconsejería de Universidades e Investigación del Gobierno Autónomo Vasco. Also, researchers from other institutions (both academic and industrial) take part in this degree and several agreements between the university and external institutions (Tecnalia, IK4, Ikerbasque, BCAM, Vicomtech, ...) provide support to this Master's degree.
According to the professional standards recommended by the Thematic Network European Computing Education and Training, the contents covered in this Master's degree include:
- Advanced mathematics for computer science (scientific computation, cryptography, etc.)
- Intelligent systems (artificial intelligence, data mining, big data, smart control)
- Visualization and multimedia systems (graphics computing, modelling, animation, visualization, virtual reality, creation of images)
- Industrial informatics (automatism, robotics, computer vision, simulation)
- Aplications (bioinformatics, medical informatics, stock market, transportation, etc.)
The Erasmus Mundus Master in Language and Communication Technologies (LCT) is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in a rapidly growing area. It offers education and training opportunities for the next generations of leaders in research and innovation. It provides students with profound knowledge and insight into the various disciplines that contribute to the methods of language and communication technologies and it strengthens their ability to work according to scientific methods.
The main objective of this master's degree is to analyse language and to get to know the existing techniques and applications for computer language processing, with a double orientation, both research and professional in the field of language technologies. Moreover, the students acquire practice-oriented knowledge by choosing appropriate combinations of core, specialized an free choice modules, while following at least one of the specialization tracks: The Digital Language Resources (DLR) track, The Natural Language Algorithms and Applications (NLA) track and The Language Data Science (LDS) track.
This master's degree gives direct access to several doctoral programmes e.g. to Language Analysis and Processing at UPV/EHU.
