Program Description

Master of Science Computer science - research profile

University of Southern Denmark

To be accepted into the master’s programme in Computer science, you need to complete a relevant bachelor programme.

The Computer science programme gives you a broad knowledge of information technology focussed on algorithmic techniques which form the basis for developing effective and secure modern software solutions. It also emphasises principles which will also be relevant in the next decade.

In the master’s programme in Computer science, you continue developing you insight into scientific theories and methods, your experience with working independently with complex problems (business related or scientific questions) as well as your ability to express yourself clearly on academic subjects and mediate these to others.

The master’s programme thus qualifies you to participate in scienctific works and independently undertake business functions based on these abilities.

The scientific aspect of the master’s programme is most evident in the final thesis project which lasts a year. Work on the project is done in close contact with a supervisor and often in connection to the supervisor’s own research.

It must be said, though, that the master’s programme is not a research degree as such. To achieve these credentials, one must complete a PhD.

A large part of the programme consists of a free choice of courses. The selection of these is updated every quarter. The end result is that you can piece together a very focussed degree, regardless of whether you aim for the business sector or teaching and research in Computer science.
