Programme profile

IT is everywhere in our society - in homes, healthcare and industry. This programme focuses mainly on the software in IT systems, which can be found in everything from mobile phones and games to cars and industrial robots. As a computer scientist, you will get solid knowledge of programming and the art of designing and developing IT systems. Programs control computers. These programmes can be very small, or huge systems with millions of lines of program code. The development of larger programmes requires well thought-out approaches and a good organization.

Amongst the things you learn in software technology, which is a part of computer science, are how to organise, design and develop large computer systems. You will also acquire knowledge of other fields of computer science such as computer networks, databases and operating systems. Elective courses within the programme let you create your own educational profile, for example in computer graphics/visualisation.
