New Revised Program from the Fall of 2017 Onwards
New Module Structure
The teaching program is structured into modules (see table below). Each module is specified in detail by giving the responsible university, the lecturer in charge, the content and qualification objectives (learning outcomes), the form of teaching, the courses, the prerequisites for participation, the usability, the credits, the frequency, and its duration. All modules are consecutive and taught in English.
All modules of the form EMCL-B-X are basic and mandatory modules; all modules of the form EMCL-A-X are advanced modules, from which a student must select at least three.
Foundation- and Application Track
In the second year students specialize in various aspects. They have to select between a foundation and an application-oriented track. Whereas the foundation track is aiming at preparing the students to continue their education in a PhD program, the application-oriented track shall prepare students to work in business and industry after the successful graduation in EMCL. Besides selecting a track the students specialize within CL in their advanced modules, their projects, their seminars and their master theses.
In the foundation track students will be integrated into ongoing research projects at the Partner Universities in their projects and master theses. Moreover, projects and master thesis can be done in cooperation with international research institutions like DATA61.
In the application-oriented track students are supposed to work on their project and master theses topics in collaboration with an industrial partner thus gaining a deep business knowledge, a strong strategic orientation, and a thorough understanding of the customer and business process. In addition, an internship as part of the module EMCL-A-CSE shall prepare students for the project and master work in industry and business.
Adapations to the Module EMCL-A-CSE
The module EMCL-A-CSE has been modified for the application-oriented track. It now includes
Distributed Advanced Seminar
In this seminar offered by all Partner Universities, representatives of companies present applied research. These seminars will be organized biweekly at one partner university and televised to all Partner Universities. As a follow-up, students may visit the companies. These excursions will be organized in the first semester by TUD, in the second semester by unibz as well as during the EMCL students' workshop in Vienna by TUW and in Lisbon by NOVA. Students are required to deliver reports identifying joint research problems that can be addressed in an internship, a project, and/or a master thesis. This advanced seminar shall be the starting point to develop skills to initiate and to maintain successful business partnerships.
- Lecture on Application of Computational Logic
The Evaluation Board carries out the external evaluation and consists of two external experts, one student, one alumnus, two administrative staff members and two teaching staff memers.
The student and the alumnus are selected by the current students and the alumni, respectively. The administrative and the teaching staff members are selected by the JC and shall together represent all Partner Universities. The two external experts in the EB shall be selected by Informatics Europe (www.informatics-europe.org).
The Advisory Board advices the Joint Commission on all aspects of education and training in CL while focusing on the aded value for the distributed joint aster program for European education in Computational Logic. The following are the current members of the Advisory Board:
- DATA61, former NICTA
The selection board consists of two members of each Partner University. They receive the applications of the students, and implements the application- and selection process, as specified in in the EMCL booklet All About EMCL.
