Communications and Data Science (CoDaS)

The Communications and Data Science Programme (CoDaS) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM) programme, funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. CoDaS is also one of the first degrees promoted by the European Programme University Network for Innovation, Technology and Engineering (Unite!). The programme is organized by the School of Electrical Engineering at Aalto University.

CoDaS is jointly offered by five European universities:

  • Aalto University, Finland
  • Grenoble INP-UGA, France
  • Técnico Lisboa, Portugal
  • TU Braunschweig, Germany
  • UPC Barcelona, Spain

The Communications and Data Science Programme is a double degree programme, which means that you will study in at least two European universities and in two different countries. The program is a four semester Master's Programme, 120 ECTS. An integral part of the second year is a Master’s thesis (30 ECTS).

All Consortium Universities can be either Home University (first year) or Host University (second year). On the first year, you will complete courses with 60 ECTS at Home University and on the second year, you will complete courses with 30 ECTS and the thesis with 30 ECTS at Host University. On the first year, you will already get a chance to study your field of specialization by completing a course online provided by the second-year university.

Students starting from 2024 onwards are required to study at two countries other than their country of residence at the start of studies. If you are a resident of the country of the Home or Host University before starting in the programme, you are required to complete the final semester (thesis work) in another Host University or within the industry in another country. 

After completing the programme, you will graduate from the two universities you have completed 60 ECTS, including the thesis. You will be granted a double degree, meaning that you will receive a diploma from both universities.
