Find out the international programs of the EIT Digital Master School!
EIT Digital Master School is an exclusive collaboration between the best technical universities in Europe, supported by top research institutes and leading business organisations. EIT Digital Master School offers a two-year education in which students choose two universities in two different European countries, building a curriculum of their choice based on their skills and interests. The Master School offers double degrees which combine technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Each technical programme includes a common technical competence base, which constitutes the curriculum for the first study year, and a specialisation that is the starting point for the thesis work during the second year. In addition, a Minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship provides students with valuable knowledge on how to drive their innovations to the market. A basic course in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, two-week Summer Schools, and the Business Development Labs course are the vital parts of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship module.
EIT Digital Master School is part of EIT Digital. EIT Digital is a leading European digital innovation and entrepreneurial education organisation driving Europe’s digital transformation.
