BMCS Courses in 2016-17

Courses in 2016-17

The goal of the courses is to develop the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team, giving students of one curriculum the basics of the language and concepts to understand research of the other curriculum within and after their Phd.


The overall BMCS offer in 2016-2017 including course length, exams and schedule is synthesized in this TABLE. 
Attendance is acknowledged to students present at least 75% of the course hours.


Optional BMCS

Optional non BMCS counting within the 150 hours

In order to be consider within the 150 hours, a non-BMCS course must:

- be approved in advance in writing (e.g. by email) by your supervisor, unless they are not part of the doctoral school in psychology (max 2) or the graduate School in Information Engineering.
- not overlap in time with mandatory ones offers by BMCS
- not overlap in content content with those offered by BMCS. For instance, additional courses related to presenting or writing scientific papers will not be counted within the 150 hours since BMCS already offers a mandatory one on this subject.
In addition, each course will count for a number of hours no longer than the maximum length of a BMCS optional course (10 hours). If the course is longer, only 10 hours will be considered in fulfillment of your 150 mandatory hours.

After attending a non-BMCS course, to claim it within the 150hrs, you need to have this form signed by the teacher and forwarded to Vittorio Principe.
