What is EMOOSE?
EMOOSE is a European master in object-, component-, aspect-, oriented software
engineering technologies. The program is taught in English and consists of
5 months of academic studies at EMN - France; and
6 months of research in one of the institutions affiliated to the program.
The EMOOSE Program
The EMOOSE program is a joint Master of Science program between the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Ecole des Mines de Nantes, with the participation of the European-Latin American network SENSO and the European Network of excellence on Aspect-Oriented Software development (AOSD).
EMOOSE provides students with a solid background in Software Engineering
with an emphasis on up-to-date as well as future technologies facilitating the modularization,
reuse, and evolution of software. The program addresses the
concepts behind these technologies, the building of languages
and tools supporting the technologies, and their application
to software construction, with a wide range of application domains,
from information systems and ubiquitous computing to middleware
and operating systems.
The Master's prepares the students for research and industrial positions
where a solid background in state-of-the-art technology is required.
Students also learn to work in international settings by interacting
with foreign peers, professors and researchers and by going abroad
and experiencing other cultural and working practices.
This program is the right choice for candidates that aim to master object-oriented technology, either for industry or for education purposes. Candidates will receive a degree of Master of Science (MSc) issued by the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (Belgium) upon successful completion of their master program.
In order to qualify candidates must have a B. Sc. degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or an equivalent degree from a recognized university or engineering college. Candidates must also have a solid background in mathematics and foundations of computer science, a fair knowledge of object-oriented technology and software engineering and fluency in English, both spoken and written
(validated by a TOEFL test score of at least 230 or an equivalent test).

The Institution Network
EMOOSE includes two overlapping networks of partners, an
SENSO, and a European one AOSD. SENSO is at the origin of EMOOSE,
initiated in 1996 around a partnership between European and Latin
institutions with an early support of the European Union. The main
idea was to
foster collaboration between the institutions of both continents in
through the exchange of students and teachers, but also through the
of common research programs and events. The SENSO network has since
to other continents. AOSD is a European Network of Excellence
Aspect-Oriented Software Development. It is a new partner of EMOOSE,
a number of the AOSD partners were already SENSO partners. This
built around the emerging Aspect paradigm and uses EMOOSE as an
of high-level academic training on AOSD.
