Masterstudium DDP Computational Logic (Erasmus-Mundus)

The European Master’s Program in Computational Logic is an international distributed Master of Science study program implemented by the computer science departments of five cooperating universities: Technische Universität Dresden, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Libera Universitá di Bolzano, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and Vienna University of Technology.

Approach
The objective of the program is to impart to the students the profound theoretical and practical knowledge required for professional practice in the field, to give them a survey of the individual disciplines of Computational Logic and to develop their ability to work according to scientific methods. In addition, the students are given the opportunity to plan their studies to fit a particular practical application. To acquire practice-oriented knowledge they may choose appropriate combinations of modules. By means of visits abroad and English as the language of instruction, the students are to be prepared for the increasing internationalism of science, commerce and industry. The focus of instruction lies in the following areas: mathematical logic, logic programming, deduction systems, knowledge representation, artificial intelligence, methods of formal specification and verification, inference techniques, syntax-directed semantics, and the relationship between theoretical computer science and logic.

Professional Activity
Computational Logic is of increasing importance for dealing with the complexity of modern computer-supported systems and worldwide on the rise. Today‘s information technology is witnessing a change - and the change is omnipresent. Especially the Internet is a scientific invention that has influenced the way we think and act. The more all this transfuses into our lives, the more mind boggling it becomes for the computer scientists to handle various key issues involved in data security, transactions, network computing, network architecture, computer architecture, complex software, distributed platforms and in short - every little aspect which affects our present day computer society.
