TCCM is a two-year master (referred as M1 and M2 respectively) of 120 ECTS.
M1 is mostly delivered at the local level, the syllabus to be implemented in each university has been agreed among all degree-awarding universities to ensure common contents, within the restrictions imposed by national regulations or by the need to adapt the plan to the level of local students. It covers the fundamental aspects: theoretical methodologies, computational techniques and main applications. At the very beginning of the M1 and integration activity will take place very year to ensure a sense of community among our students. It will allow all the M1 students from the TCCM Master (Master regardless of their country of choice for M1) to meet each other and feel part of a joint journey.
The courses in M2 include a compulsory part and several elective subjects to cover the different fields of applications. All M2 courses will be common and offered during the first semester of the second year to all master’s students. They have been designed to promote mobility and will be held in different countries, but allowing that at least 30 ECTS are completed in one single country. During the second semester of M2 all students will do their Master thesis in collaboration between two groups from different partners and different countries, to enhance collaboration an integration among research groups and to ensure that students learn at least two complementary techniques. In the Master thesis students will spend a minimum of three months in a country different from the University in which they are registered, thereby also addressing the EMJMD objective of “promoting linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness”.
This scheme will ensure that all students take long periods in at least two different countries and can do the required compulsory mobility of 30 ECTS in a second country in any of the two semesters of the second year, or in both having extra mobility periods adding up to more than 30 ECTS.
