About the Degree

The Master’s programme in Computer Science is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal learning environment. Our in­ternational teaching staff expect students to take an active part in the programme, and staff–student consultation is always encouraged. The teaching is a mix of lectures and classes, with preparatory work in study groups. 

We expect applicants to have a bachelor’s degree giving a thorough background in basic computer science. This should include: computa­tion theory (formal languages and compilation, mathematical logic and undecidability, design and analysis of algorithms, and data structures), programming (object-oriented programming, functional programming, software architecture, and interaction design), and systems (computer architecture, operating systems, distributed systems, security, databases). For students who meet these requirements, our master’s programme offers a number of specialisations, such as cryptology, algorithmics, pro­gramming languages, HCI, and ubiquitous computing and interaction.  

The Department of Computer Science is located in IT City Katrinebjerg, the centre where Aarhus University has consolidated all its IT degree programmes and research. IT City is the base for several IT-related companies. It facilitates contact between the university, research and the business community, and provides the ideal base for advanced technological innovation. As the largest IT education centre in Denmark, with approximately 2,500 students and more than 200 researchers, IT City is an exciting study environment. This multidisciplinary hub, unique to Aarhus University, provides great opportunities in IT for students, re­searchers, and the business community.
