Structure

EMILDAI offers a highly integrated, multilingual and interdisciplinary curriculum, which is articulated into two years (120 ECTS). EMILDAI students will receive a joint master degree awarded by the partner universities they attend (joint degree ‘per track’). Students are required to know at least two languages: either English and French or English and Spanish.

Year 1 aims to offer students a comprehensive introduction to the core themes related to law, data and AI, while Year 2 aims to provide students with a specialisation in the fields of data governance, cybersecurity and AI law and ethics.

Students are divided into two Study Streams: Law and Computing, depending on the student’s disciplinary background and professional experience. EMILDAI’s programme and curriculum design supports the learning outcomes of the programme, which include subject-specific, practical, intellectual, and transferable skills.

In Year 1, students of both streams will spend semester 1 and 2 at DCU completing an ‘Introduction to Law, Data and AI’. In Year 2, Law Stream students will specialise in either data governance at Avignon Université (Study Track A, taught in French) or cybersecurity at Universidad de León (Study Track B, taught in Spanish) in semester 3, and will gain an in-depth understanding of AI Law and Ethics at Università di Pisa in semester 4. In Year 2, Computing Stream students will spend both semester 3 and 4 specialising in either data governance at Avignon Université (Study Track A, taught in French) or cybersecurity at Universidad de León (Study Track B, taught in Spanish).
