Trimester 1: ICT Systems and Networks:

The purpose of the first trimester is to give the student a fundamental understanding of the technologies behind the ICT systems and networks. The main part of the courses and project themes for the first trimester is within the area Product Technology. The aim is to give the student insight in the ICT communication systems, protocols and basic concepts concerning Internet Protocols (IP).

Trimester 2: ICT Applications and Software Development:

The purpose is to give the student an understanding of and experience with theories and methods in professional software development, including advanced applications of object-oriented technologies.

Trimester 3: ICT Business and Market:

The third part of the study line consists primarily of the student's final project work - the thesis, which will be supplemented, as in other trimesters, by a line of courses. The project work on the third trimester consists of the final thesis. The theme for the thesis is chosen freely by the student based on personal interests and professional qualifications. The aim is to give the student insight in the economic, business and regulatory aspects of the development of the market within information and communication technologies.
