  • Performance Optimization & Parallel Computing

Further, there are also several research projects associated with the different research areas.

In relation to our undergraduate education, we teach courses in computer systems, communication systems, programming & algorithms, database, Web, machine learning and security.

In the video below we present our new civil engineer program in AI and machine learning, this is planned to start ht 2019.

Detailed information about our courses is provided in the Education page. If you are looking for a specific syllabus for one of our courses, KursInfo will provide you with that.

The head of the department is professor Lars Lundberg. The department coordinator is Eva-Lotta Runesson.

You can find our department in building H and J at Campus Gräsvik, Karlskrona , and in Karlshamn.
