The education fulfils the goals set by the Swedish Higher Education Act.
Today, computer science is an enormously vibrant field, including topics such as programming languages, algorithms and complexity, data structures, intelligent systems, distributed systems, and network technologies. During its fifty years of existence, computer science has become a defining technology of our age. Computers are integral to many parts of our society and, moreover, the field continues to evolve at an astonishing pace. New technologies are introduced continually, and existing ones become obsolete.
Our master program in Computer Science offers a number of advanced courses, e.g., with emphasis on information security, information systems, and intelligent systems. The courses focus on aspects close to the research front in computer science. The master program includes writing a master thesis under the supervision of a senior researcher in the field, which usually is based on current research and scientific articles. After obtaining your master degree you are well prepared for a work in industry as well as a research career at the university.
The programme offers courses mainly at advanced level in computer science and related fields. The aim of the programme is to give the student capabilities and knowledge to pursue a career as researcher or a business professional in the computer science industry. The courses offered within the programme include both practical software development and more investigating work. Students are expected to design their own curriculum to cater to their particular interest and background.
