EIT Digital Master School admission is now live - are you ready to apply?

The admissions portal for the EIT Digital Master School is now open for all students who want to learn how to turn technology into business. Students can apply for a two-year programme and be awarded upon graduation, two Master’s degrees from two top technical European universities, plus a certificate from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

The application for 2023 entry is now open to EU/EEA/CH/Non-EU citizens and will close on 6 February 2023, 12:00 CET.

The EIT Digital Master School is a European network of 15 top-tech universities. It combines technical education on emerging technologies with entrepreneurial education and aims at delivering T-shaped innovators with an entrepreneurial mindset delivering talent to the digital labour market that either will be co-creators of ventures or will enter the industry.

"The future of work is digital talent, however, finding and recruiting this talent remains the biggest bottleneck to an organization’s growth and innovation. Our aim at the EIT Digital Master School is to create and foster top digital talent to elevate European technology innovation competitiveness", says Salvatore Moccia, Head of EIT Digital Master School.

Innovation and entrepreneurship classes and real-time exercises are the red-thread throughout the two-year programmes. Graduating students, therefore, are able to turn deep tech into business. 

"The industry needs people who just not understand the new emerging technologies, but also know how to use these technologies in business. We prepare our students on these needs", he emphasizes.

Within the EIT Digital Master School students can choose from seven technical Master School programmes: Autonomous SystemsCloud and Network InfrastructuresData ScienceCyber SecurityEmbedded SystemsFintech, and Human Computer Interaction and Design.

In 2023, the programmes can be followed throughout Europe within the network of 15 top-tech universities with the Romanian Babeș-Bolyai University (UBB) specialising in cybersecurity as the latest strengthening - as well as research and industry partners across Europe.

By studying at EIT Digital, students will become a part of a unique ecosystem of entrepreneurs, companies, researchers and alumni across the whole of Europe. During the two-year course of study, they learn at two different universities in two countries, complete a work placement and also participate in a two-week summer school programme.

Thanks to the Student Ambassador network any new student needs not to be concerned about being left alone in a foreign country or strange city. Student Ambassadors are current students and alumni who help others understand the benefits of the Master School. They talk to prospective students, answer individual questions, organise events and encourage online discussion.

Current and alumni students say the EIT Digital Master School is more than just a master’s. They praise the strong community and the close connections with the industry which they can benefit from. This is for example expressed by people from the networking welcoming all newly enrolled 200 students at the annual Kick-off in 2022. After graduation, EIT Digital students continue collaboration and strengthening their mutual bondage in the vibrant, active and successful alumni network of EIT Digital.

"According to our alumni surveys, 95% of our students are employed within six months after graduation and 93% remain active in their field of studies. An inevitable proof of the efficiency and quality of the EIT Digital Master programmes", Salvatore Moccia rejoices.
