EDISS is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programme jointly delivered by Åbo Akademi University, University of the Balearic Islands, University of L’Aquila and Mälardalen University.
In the age of data explosion, scientists are dealing with the massive magnitude of unstructured, complex data which contain an unprecedented amount of decrypted information which in turn can facilitate the breakthrough data-driven discoveries and predictions. At the same time, software and system engineers focus their attention on the engineering process of software, therefore collecting requirements and building system architectures that, more and more, deal with data collections and management.
EDISS promises to bridge this gap by bringing together data scientists and software engineers in order to engineer data-intensive intelligent software systems.
EDISS will educate experts who can masterfully integrate data science and ML solutions into software and system engineering processes.
EDISS is a two-year programme (120 ECTS) based on the collaboration between four university partners. Åbo Akademi University is the entry university for all students and in the second year, the students will follow their individual mobility path within one of the three specializations provided by EDISS. For each student, the choice of the second-year institution will be decided, in the second semester of the first year, by the EDISS selection committee based on the student’s list of preferences, his or her academic performance and the teaching staff input.
All students completing the EDISS programme will obtain a double master’s degree from Åbo Akademi University and the institution chosen for the second-year specialization.
In addition to the mandatory and elective courses offered in the programme, EDISS students will participate in a one-week winter school organized each year during the second semester of the academic year. The programme also includes a mandatory internship for first-year students with an associate company.
