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 Masters' degrees from two top technical universities, plus a certificate from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The EIT Digital Master School is a European network of toptech Universities.
The EIT Digital Master School combines technical education on emerging technologies with entrepreneurial education. Innovation and entrepreneurship classes and real time exercises are a red threat throughout the two-year programmes. Graduating students therefore are able to turn deep tech into business. "This skill set is very needed to build a strong digital Europe", says Roberto Prieto, Chief Education Officer at EIT Digital. "The industry needs people who understand the new emerging technologies, and also know how to use these technologies in business. We prepare our students on these needs."
Within the EIT Digital Master School students can choose from eight technical Master School programmes. These are: Autonomous Systems, Cloud and Network Infrastructures, Data Science, Cyber Security, Digital Manufacturing, Embedded Systems, Fintech, and Human Computer Interaction and Design.
The programmes can be followed throughout Europe within the network of 18 top tech universities and research and industry partners across Europe. By studying at EIT Digital, students are part of a unique ecosystem of entrepreneurs, companies, researchers and alumni across the whole of Europe.
Current and alumni students say the EIT Digital Master School is more than just a master. 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 students at the annual Kick-Off in 2020.
During the two-year course of study, students learn at two different universities in two countries, complete a work placement and also participate in a two-week summer school programme. At the time of graduation, it is anticipated that the EIT Digital Master School students are 100 percent employed or continuing in PhD-programmes. Over a third of the graduates plan to start their own company within two years of graduation.
