EIT Digital is a leading European open innovation organisation. Our mission is to foster digital technology innovation and entrepreneurial talent for economic growth and quality of life in Europe. We bring together entrepreneurs from a partnership of over 180 top European corporations, SMEs, start-ups, universities and research institutes.
EIT Digital invests in strategic areas to accelerate the market uptake of research-based digital technologies and to bring entrepreneurial talent and leadership to Europe. Our innovation and education activities are organised in and around our co-location centres, where students, researchers, engineers, business developers and entrepreneurs come together to drive the digitalisation of society.
Start your journey towards digital innovation:
Thanks to its unique format, the EIT Digital Master School offers a truly European experience. During the two-year programme, students enroll at universities in two different countries, leading to two Master of Science degrees as well as the EIT-labelled certificate. They also participate in a three-day business challenge, a two-week summer school and undertake a work placement, all of which can take place in different locations across Europe.
Select the programme that best matches your academic interests and personal passions and start your innovation and entrepreneurship journey with EIT Digital! Choose two universities among the best ones in Europe. When admitted, you will kick-off your 2-year academic path at an entry university, depending also on your technical background. Next, you will move on to your exit point university, located in a different country in Europe! This will give you a profound international experience, knowledge reaching far beyond the classroom and the chance to fully immerse yourself in an English-speaking context, as all courses are taught in English.
The first year starts with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme. At the same time, hot topics in business and management will be covered. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These will teach you how to turn technology into business and how to present a persuasive and strong business plan. In addition, you will able to take some elective courses as well.
Enjoy our Summer Programmes as part of the Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) Minor, a two-week event which added value is to exercise a business development process in the context of a thematic area. It stimulates the entrepreneurial mindset, so you will learn to put business development activities in an application context. Moreover, it will enhance your I&E skills and help you build an international network, meeting students from other technical programmes as well as various stakeholders such as companies, market research experts, technology experts, etc.
The second year offers a specialization and a graduation project. The project includes an internship at a company or at a research institute and will result in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
A key component in your EIT Digital Master School Program is the integrated combination of a Master Thesis (30 ECTS) and an ´Internship´ (no extra ECTS, included in the master thesis credits). The industry based Master thesis (typically integrated with the ´Internship´) is a core part of your education, crucial for awarding you the EIT Digital certificate. We refer to this combination as the Final Degree Project (‘FDP’).
Join your fellow students in the event that will conclude your exciting academic journey! You will be awarded two officially recognised Master of Science Degrees upon completion of your two-year education. When you graduate from the Master's education, you will receive an EIT Digital Master's Certificate signed by representatives of the degree issuing universities and EIT Digital. The EIT Digital Master's Certificate is based on the two degrees, and summarises the EIT Label and EIT Digital Master School specific characteristics of the education.
