  • A very industry-focused programme
  • You will get a strong connection to the research group at BTH

Programme presentation

These days a number of products contain software. Even areas, which traditionally have been focused on hardware issues, are nowadays more and more focusing on software. To put it simple, the demand for software engineering experts, from society in general, and industry in particular, will in the long run always be high. Lately industry has started to require, not only, general competencies, but also expertise in various disciplines concerning software engineering.


The programme will be carried out using a strong consultative approach. The consultative approach means that you will solve tasks which industry provides, usually when you will be working in industry during one of the job experience periods. The thesis course is, without exception, performed in collaboration with industry.



The master programme in software quality (co-op) strives at providing you with knowledge and skills that later can be applicable to different software engineering activities and in the end ensure that these activities are performed in a way to ensure high-quality products. Knowledge and skills, of this type, is constantly being in demand by the Swedish and European labor market and in this particular case Swedish industry provides the program with a number of job experience positions (co-operative education), i.e. you will be out working in industry part-time during your studies.


Working areas after exam

With a master in software engineering with a focus on software equality issues you will most likely work in software industry in Sweden at one of the partner companies after finishing your degree.


Research at BTH
