In order to pass the Master in Software and Systems, students are obliged to take the Scientific Method seminar worth 2 ECTS credits. Students also have to earn at least another 7 ECTS credits chosen from wide range of seminars. Seminars will be held across the two semesters of the academic year (from September to June), regardless of enrolment.

The Master in Software and Systems Academic Policy Committee will put together the list of seminars every academic year. This policy is designed to assure that students have an open choice of cutting-edge topics and to tailor the master's degree contents to the current educational needs of the market and state-of-the-art technology. These seminars will be taught by reputed specialists in particular topics, guest lecturers from both national and international higher education institutions, as well as, occasionally, from companies conducting research. The seminars will deal with specific topics within the master's specialized area of knowledge.

The seminars scheduled to date for the current academic year are listed below; this provisional list will be updated with other seminar proposals throughout the year.

The specified seminar dates and times are tentative and subject to possible last-minute changes or cancellations due to guest lecturer scheduling problems.

Seminar grading will depend on the grade awarded by the seminar lecturer and the number of earned seminar credits over the number of enrolled seminar credits.

Students intending to attend a seminar shall have to register using the form bellow no later than 5 days before the seminar is scheduled to start.
