Name: Computer Science

Type: University Programme

Duration: BSc: 3 years, MSc: 2 years

European transfer credits: BSc: 180 ECTS, MSc: 120 ECTS

Language: English

In the Computer Science programme, you will learn to analyse and solve complex problems related to Information Technology (IT). Advancements in IT happen quickly, which means that there is a constant need to develop new systems that can do more. Via a theoretical foundation you will learn how to construct and implement large computer systems. You will be able to work in areas such as bioinformatics, cryptology, database systems, computer game programming, industrial optimization, and online algorithms.

Teaching varies between lectures and classroom instruction. In addition, there is often project work together with other students. Students are encouraged to participate in class discussions.

If you choose to complete the master's degree programme, you will graduate with the academic title of Master of Science (MSc).
