ANNOUNCEMENT: FELLOWSHIPS FOR MASTER’S STUDENTS IN INFORMATICS IN AUSTRIA
From: Bruno Buchberger, Professor of Computer Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University in Austria, Europe.
To: Students of Informatics / Computer Science and Related Subjects.
Since a couple of years, I am organizing and heading a special master’s program in informatics / computer science with a couple of unique features:
– the entire program is in English
– the master thesis projects are on real-life projects in close cooperation with Austrian IT companies
– the curriculum of each student is designed in order to allow specialization in the area of thesis project
– in addition to the informatics courses, we offer a series of courses and trainings on general skills that turn out to be more and more important for the future careers of informatics graduates
– the program is carried out in close cooperation with RISC (Research Institute for Symbolic Compuation), the RISC Software Company, and the Softwarepark Hagenberg (a spin-off of RISC with its own start-up program)
– we help students with administrative and personal problems and the students and graduates run their own «International Club» down-town Linz and a Graduates Network.
The general training courses include
– Explanation Training and Formal Thinking
– Working Techniques (giving talks, writing papers, team work, working with companies)
– Industrial Project Specification and Organization
– Leadership Training
– Modeling with Mathematical Software Systems (like Mathematica, Maple, etc.).
I am personally involved in structuring and teaching these courses, which condense my experience as a professor, research manager, and head of a technology park.
For good students, we waive tuition. Very good students are eligible for a fellowship.
