Sports Service: over 50 weekly courses and a Gym at complete disposal of all students
The MCS is a highly-selective program designed for students with a strong background in mathematics, computer science, and applied statistics. Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree in the field of Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Statistics, or related disciplines granted by an accredited university. Applicants with a bachelor's degree in the social sciences with adequate computational and analytical training will also be considered.
Candidates with a Bachelor's degree from a recognized University of Applied Sciences may be admitted with 30-60 additional ECTS to be earned during or before the beginning of the program, with Bachelor courses according to a study program defined by the scientific director. Admissions will be treated on a case-by-case basis.
Admission to English-language graduate-level (Master) programmes at USI requires a good command, or advanced knowledge, of the English idiom. Non-English native speakers applying for the Master, or whose previous degree was obtained in another language than English, are required to provide an internationally acknowledged language certificate equal to the B2 level (IELTS 5.5), as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for language learning (CEFR), or equivalent (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).
Students admitted on the above-mentioned condition must achieve a C1 (IELTS 7.0) competence in English within the maximum time required to obtain the Master's degree. The level can be certified either by attending a language course offered at USI during the Fall and Spring semester, and by taking the final exam, or by providing an internationally acknowledged language certificate.
A complete list of the accepted English language certificate is available at https://www.usi.ch/en/education/master/admission.
Über den Studiengang
The Master of Science degree in Computational Science (MCS) at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) offers students the opportunity to acquire an in-depth understanding and set of skills in computational science, numerical simulation, applied mathematics, statistics, and data science. It provides an innovative combination of methodological and applied competencies in both computational and data science, which endow students with the knowledge and skills that are needed to operate at the forefront of science and industry.
Computational Science is not to be confused with Computer Science, which deals with the science and engineering of computers. Computational Science represents a broader approach to interdisciplinary problems and projects, using computer simulations in model-based approaches that represent the interaction between theory and experiment.
After the successful completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Science in Computational Science.
