MSc in Computer Engineering
Choose your special area of study
Students in the MSc in Computer Engineering can specialise in relevant fields of study connected with system and instrument development involving software, hardware, and communication technology. Depending on your chosen specialisation, upon completion of the degree, you will be awarded the title of either Master of Science in Engineering (Computer Engineering) or Master of Science and Technology (Computer Engineering).
Your teachers will be researchers from the Department of Engineering and Department of Computer Science, as well as lecturers and development engineers at the Aarhus University School of Engineering. The degree programme thus benefits from research and development projects carried out in all three environments.
Choice of study packages
The first year of the MSc consists of two basic study packages and two specialised study packages. All students take the basic study packages, but you can choose your own specialised study packages from the options listed on page 2. Each package is worth 15 ECTS credits. The second year consists of an elective programme and a thesis.
The MSc programme offers specialised study packages in the following fields: software engineering, embedded real-time systems, distributed systems, digital signal processing, communication technology, and electronics.
At Aarhus University, you will be in close contact with lecturers and researchers in a way that is rarely experienced at other universities. The academic staff are readily accessible if you need clarification of the course material. Part of the teaching is in the form of lectures that introduce new angles on the course material, and theoretical and practical exercises take place in small groups in which issues are studied in depth.
The Department of Engineering has several social spaces for meeting other students outside class, and these form an excellent basis for social activities. There is also an engineering club for staff and students to network with like-minded people. As in all AU departments, there is a popular Friday bar, and the Tågekammeret association for science and technology students organises celebrations and social events across all the science and technology departments.
The MSc in Computer Engineering prepares students for the national and international job market. Our graduates have found jobs across a range of fields and institutions. There is considerable demand for IT graduates in areas such as instrument development engineering. Many graduates are working as software architects or developers of large instruments and systems, or have become software developers or project managers for large IT systems.
Graduates with theoretical depth and analytical working methods are in considerable demand among companies. Graduates from this programme will have learnt to combine the theoretically strong knowledge of a computer scientist with the more practically oriented and innovative approach of an engineer.
“Ever since the beginning of high school, I have been fascinated by the space industry, and I would really like to work in this area in the future. And I think the possibilities are good today, because it is an industry that has been expanding for many years as it has become less expensive to send things into space. ”
