The MSc in Computer Science gives a broad foundation within the field of computer science. After completing this programme the door is open to some of the most challenging and interesting jobs in the field. 

The specialisation in Reliable and Secure Systems provides a basis for work in the development and planning of commercial computer systems for different purposes.

The specialisation Data Science provides a basis for work in data analysis and development of data processing systems for the whole data lifecycle.

The Computer Science programme offers courses built on top of a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science.

The program utilizes lectures and activities such as individual projects, group projects, laboratory exercises with written reports, and company and industrial plant visits as learning methods. There is a high degree of individual advisory in the program, in particular in the work with the master’s thesis at the end.

The programme is organized under the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
