The Pathfinder programme offers a two-year generalist course in computer science. It differs from the other courses in the Master’s in Computer Science, since it is aimed at students with initial training other than in computer science, in order to offer them the opportunity to acquire the concepts essential for mastering the current challenges of digital technology. The practical internships and modules related to project management, complete the more fundamental courses in computer science offered by the programme.

The course targets two types of student profile: (1) students wishing to acquire and develop a dual competence in emerging high value-added professions, or (2) students considering a career change and aiming for more traditional positions in IT.
