The core of the program is formed by courses that have been especially conceived for the CSIM master and some that are shared from other master programs in our department. These courses are composed into the following three groups:
- Compulsory Courses: These courses are meant to give a solid base and a transversal view onto Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media.
- Main Optional Pool Courses: These courses are meant to provide a more in depth view on specific branches of Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media.
- Optional Expansion Pool Courses: These courses are meant to provide an expansion into more applicative branches of Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media.
NOTE: These courses are technically and mathematically quite demanding and are therefore only feasible for students that already have a strong background in mathematics and engineering.

All courses are worth 5 ECTS (European credits), while the Project is worth 20 ECTS.
To attain the masters diploma the student must get a total of 60 ECTS.
Therefore, students must choose:
- All the Base Courses (20ECTS)
- A minimum of 3 courses from the Main Optional Pool Courses (mínimum 15ECTS)
- A maximum of one course Optional Expansion Pool Courses (maximum 5ECTS).
- The Master Thesis Project (20ECTS)
This adds up to either: 4x5 + (4+0)x5 + 20 = 60 ECTS or 4x5 + (3+1)x5 + 20 = 60 ECTS
