The EIT Digital Master School trains professionals with technical excellence with strong expertise in innovation and entrepreneurship. This means that graduating students can turn deep tech into business.
This skill set is very needed to build a strong digital Europe. The industry needs people who not only understand the new emerging technologies but also know how to use these technologies in business. We prepare our students on these needs which makes them very much wanted on the labour market.
Roberto Prieto, Chief Education Officer, EIT Digital.
During the two years of technical studies, the students will be immersed by innovation and entrepreneurial classes and challenges. This already starts at the annual KickOff where new students from all over the world are teamed up in a two-day business challenge. Within the mandatory two-weeks Summer School in between the two years, they are tasked to crack a real live business case from one of our partners.
Within the EIT Digital Master School students can choose from nine technical Master School programmes. These programmes can be followed throughout Europe. The EIT Digital Master School consist namely of a network of 18 top tech universities in 11 countries and research and industry partners across Europe. By studying with EIT Digital, students are part of a unique ecosystem of entrepreneurs, companies, researchers and alumni across the whole of Europe.
During the two-year course of study, students learn at two different universities in two countries, complete a work placement and also participate in a two-week summer school programme. At the time of graduation, it is anticipated that EIT Digital Master School students are 100 per cent employed or continuing in PhD programmes. Over a third of the graduates plan to start their own company within two years of graduation.
In 2019, the programme was named one of the best ICT programmes by Dutch ICT magazine Computable.
