Intro

The master’s programme in Computer Science at UiS is open to Norwegian and international students. With a Master in Computer Science, the door is open to some of the most challenging and interesting jobs in the field. The study programme gives a broad foundation within the field of computer science. The study programme has two specializations: (1) Reliable and Secure Systems and (2) Data Science. This in an international study programme and all courses are given in English. The programme is organized under the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. 

Programme content, structure and composition

After the student has been admitted to the two-year master's programme in Computer Science, the student must take a test in programming and system administration. If the student does not pass the test, UiS will offer and encourage the student to complete a preparatory summer course in programming and system administration. The purpose of the course is that the students should be best prepared for the master's program. The course takes place in early August, before the regular semester starts.

The University of Stavanger does not consider it necessary to offer summer courses for those students who have already passed the following courses at the University of Stavanger:

  • 10 ECTS in programming and at least 5 ECTS in operating systems

 

The University of Stavanger offers a master's programme aimed at students who have completed a 3-year engineering degree in computer technology. The two-year master's degree in Computer Science comprises 120 ECTS

The programme has practical courses that build on mathematics, statistics, and basic computer science subjects from the bachelor's degree in Computer Science. The program contains advanced statistics topics and algorithmic topics, machine learning and data intensive systems. The specialisation Reliable and Secure Systems will have topics in network security, distributed systems and algorithm theory. The specialisation Data Science will specialize in information retrieval, data recovery and further specialisation in statistics.

The programme offers a variety of work and teaching programs, from traditional lecture series and exercises, project work, self-study and laboratory teaching to introduction and practice in the use of modern software. The emphasis on the individual teaching forms varies to some extent between the different subject groups.

The following is described in the individual course description:

- Forms of work and teaching

- Evaluation Forms

- Syllabus

- Assessment

The university emphasizes being able to offer all the studies as planned but must make reservations about sufficient resources and / or students to complete the offer. Over time, it will be natural for the academic content and offering of courses to change due to the general developments in the field of study, the use of technology and changes in society at large.

After admission to the programme, you can apply for a part-time study programme. The department offers fixed part-time plans.

Semester 3

Exchange scheme
Applicants admitted to the program are recommended to go on an exchange semester abroad as a part of their studies. UiS regards this exchange as a highly positive component of the program which will increase your employability. Students should select from their study program’s recommended universities.

Recommended semester abroad is 3rd semester. This semester has 30 ECTS elective courses. When studying abroad you must select courses that provide an equivalent specialization in the subject area. These courses should not overlap with the courses you have already completed. We recommend that you also consider your field of interest.

More opportunities
In addition to the recommended universities listed below, UiS has a number of agreements with universities outside Europe that are applicable to all students at UiS, provided that they find a relevant subject offering. 

Within the Nordic region, all students can use the Nordlys and Nordtek networks. Find out more.
