Om programmet

Masterprogrammet i Computer Science erbjuder dig frihet och flexibilitet att välja mellan ett stort utbud av kurser. Computer Science är ett brett ämne som spänner över allt från beräkningsteori till design av programvarusystem. Masterprogrammet drar nytta av Göteborgs universitets forskningsfokuserade institution för Data- och informationsteknik för att erbjuda ett brett och omfattande program. Som student kommer du att utforska hela spektrumet av datavetenskap och specialisera dig beroende på vad du är intresserad av.


Undervisningsspråk är engelska för hela programmet.


Computers are everywhere in society, with both beneficial and detrimental influence. With increasing connection and communication, however, the possibilities of misinformation, cyber-attacks, and breaches of privacy grow. On the other hand, aspects of life such as travel have never been more accessible, from air travel to self-driving cars. Algorithms steer our lives, influencing where we shop and what we buy, how we learn and how we communicate. At its core, computer science is the science of programming, studying the general powers and limitations of computing, the design and characteristics of hardware and software, and the solving of problems in applications of computers.


A full-spectrum master's programme
We have strong, internationally recognized research groups driving our programme, addressing a wide range of questions including the properties of electronic devices, the character of human reasoning, individual design components, globally distributed systems, fundamental understanding of computation, and highly pragmatic, applied research. You can choose courses from a wide range of areas:

  • algorithms and machine learning
  • interaction design, computer graphics, and game design
  • distributed computing and networks
  • digital systems, computer architecture, and hardware verification
  • security and privacy
  • programming languages, formal logic, and dependent types
  • real-time systems and dependability
  • functional programming and parallel computing
  • software engineering and program analysis
  • natural language processing


A unique opportunity for freedom and flexibility
Our programme is distinguished among others by offering you the opportunity to carve your own path through computer science. In contrast, other programmes often impose many mandatory courses and a rigid structure. In our programme, you will have only one mandatory course that will prepare you to start your master's thesis. We have an exchange programme that allows you the opportunity to do half a year abroad at one of our partner universities, providing even more chances to broaden your experiences and studies.


A solid foundation in computer science from which you can go anywhere
You will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for a successful professional career in a large variety of information technology areas, both in industry and academia. In particular, the programme enables you as a future professional to conceive, design, and implement systems which work correctly, are maintainable, and reliable.


Who Should Apply?
Would you like to combine thorough thinking with rapid experimentation?
Do you want to explore the principles behind computer systems?
Do you want a wide variety of choice and to build your own path in computer science?
Then apply to the master's programme in Computer Science.
