This Master aims to provide a thorough grounding in the most central aspects of advanced logic, both pure and applied. On completion, students will have the necessary skills to be able to continue with their postgraduate studies, put their knowledge into practice in the job market, or start undertaking research in many of the central areas in the field of logic.
This Master is organized jointly by the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), with the collaboration of the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA) of the CSIC.
The following departments and institutes participate in the teaching of this Master:
Department of Applied Mathematics II (UPC)
Department of Logic, History and Philosophy of Science (UB)
Department of Probability, Logic and Statistics (UB)
Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (CSIC)
Software Department (UPC)
All of the above form part of either the Faculty of Philosophy and the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Barcelona, the Faculty of Mathematics and Statistics and the Faculty of Computer Studies at the Technical University of Catalonia, or the Faculty of Sciences at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
The Master courses are taught by Spain's largest cluster of specialists in the field of Logic. Our staff are active, internationally recognised experts in the following research areas: Algebraic Logic, Computational Complexity, Computational Linguistics, History of Logic, Logical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, Model Theory, Non-Classical Logics, Philosophy of Logic and of Mathematics, Proof Theory and Set Theory.
The Master in Pure and Applied Logic draws and builds on the expertise acquired from more than a decade of postgraduate courses offered as part of the University of Barcelona's Doctorate Program in Logic and Foundations of Mathematics.
