UW Cognitive Science is a free of charge full-time 2-year master’s programme which combines areas such as psychology, computer science, philosophy and neurobiology. The studies are conducted by the Faculty of Psychology UW in cooperation with the Institute of Philosophy UW. Cognitive Science is organized as part of the University’s integrated development programme and financed from European Funds. More information on www.zip.uw.edu.pl.
The University of Warsaw is the largest and best university and a leading research centre in Poland. The university works together with 800 international partners, 400 of which are from 73 countries which have signed a bilateral cooperation agreement with UW. According to the survey conducted with graduates of UW, 90% respondents find employment within a year of obtaining a degree.
We are one of the few centres in Poland that offer cognitive studies in general. The creation of this program in English is unique in the country. We offer you:
practical experience in conducting research
in cooperation with experienced researchers and companies offering internships.
two specific thematic paths
– neurocognitive and computational.
possibility of shaping your own course of study
– high level of freedom in choosing courses depending on your particular interests.
improved competences for the international labour market
– by gaining knowledge and competences in English.
AFTER COMPLETING THE PROGRAMME YOU WILL KNOW HOW TO:
create and analyse computational models explaining cognitive and social phenomena like decision making (eg. as a data scientist in marketing or financial industry),
create and develop tools based on machine learning, artificial intelligence and natural language processing for international companies,
design and conduct advanced studies, collaborating with researchers from various fields of science,
use your knowledge and skills to support development of new technologies in diverse areas and markets, for example education and rehabilitation of people with disabilities or cognitive disorders.
Cognitive Science graduate
For me the most important thing was freedom in shaping my own course of studies. Thanks to this, I was able to devote my attention to issues of particular interest to me. I also liked the division into so-called paths. I chose the computational path because after graduation I wanted to work in the field of artificial intelligence as a scientist. I am currently continuing my studies in Canada and conducting research into the applications and linkages of natural language and learning behaviours, using imitation learning, deep learning and reinforcement learning.
Cognitive Science student
I applied for the Cognitive Science programme because I was interested in studies which combine many fields of science. I like the fact I could shape my own course of study and now I can attend different courses on topics that interest me. I chose the neurocognitive profile and I’m glad that from the second semester I was able to participate in real brain research. I currently learn how to organize and conduct a study, with particular use of EEG.
