As software systems become an ever more important part of everyday life, the dependability of these systems is becoming ever more critical.

The unique, two-year Joint Master programme, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Msc in Advanced Systems Dependability (DEPEND) is offered by Maynooth University in Ireland, the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (UK), and the Université de Lorraine in Nancy (France). Up to 20 full, 2-year grants worth up to EUR 49,000 each (fees, travel, & subsistence) are available per year, funded by the European Erasmus+ EMJMD Programme: full details will be published soon on this website.

The course provides students with the knowledge, skill, and in-depth technical understanding of the key topics of safety, reliability, availability, and security of software-based systems. This is achieved by bringing together the theory and practice of software development through research projects and work experience in both industrial and research settings.

Students attend two of the three universities during the course, spending one year at each. Annual summer schools are an important element of the course, and these take place at a different university each year. The 120 ECTS course consists of taught modules, projects & dissertations, experiential learning activities (work placements), and opportunities to explore the culture of each country. 

On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a Joint M.Sc. degree by a consortium of the three universities; the course is accredited in all three countries.

Courses are taught in English and are structured according to the ECTS. Students will be integrated into the culture of the country where they study through language and cultural courses provided by the Universities which they attend
