Program Description

Master in Computer Science

Malmö University


Are you fascinated by cutting-edge technology? Our one-year master’s programme aims to deepen your knowledge in an area of current interest within computer science, as well as to develop your scientific skills.

The programme focuses on the realisation of innovative IT services and systems. You will learn about the technologies and concepts essential for the development of modern information systems, which are typically complex and include cooperative components. Such technologies and concepts include software agents, service-oriented computing, middleware and ontologies. You will also learn how these technologies can be applied to business systems and other support activities that are critical to society.

Your future career

MSc graduates in Computer Science will find many exciting opportunities await them, such as the development of complex distributed systems for e-business, e-government, e-health, e-learning, supply chain management, mobile computing and ubiquitous computing. Moreover, you will be qualified to work as a consultant and IT developer. The degree also prepares individuals for PhD studies, leading to careers in education or research.

Entry requirements

  1. Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Degree of Engineering in Computer Science, or a degree in a related field. All degrees must be equivalent to at least 180 higher education credits.
  2. The equivalent of English B in Swedish secondary school.
  3. At least 15 credits of programming (or equivalent).
