A Master’s degree covering a wide scope of fields in computer science – with a custom built front-edge competence of your own choice.

The programme gives you both width in the field of computer science as well as the opportunity to profile your knowledge through elective courses. The programme has three main directions – IT security, Intelligent Systems, and Distributed and Parallel Systems. Mandatory courses are artificial intelligence, Unix programming, cloud computing and network security.

Focus on research for understanding of future development
The programme focuses greatly on research preparation, and the courses look at aspects at the research front of computer science, applying these in different ways. The focus on research methodology prepares you for a career in research-intensive industries, such as future research in academia or business. The teaching consists of lectures, seminars, and laborations in group and single handedly.

The tuition fee is SEK 60 000 per semester, one semester corresponds to 30 ECTS credits. EU/EEA citizens are not required to pay fees.

You will study here

On BTH’s main campus in Karlskrona, you will find our programmes and courses in engineering, IT, spatial planning, industrial economics and health sciences.


Campus Karlskrona is located right next to the water, and there is even a swimming jetty 50 meters from the lecture halls. From the modern library’s study areas, you have a nice view of the sea and outside there are exercise trails that take you through the woods and along the beach.
