Master of Science in Engineering - Software Engineering

General

Program Description

Master of Engineering - Software Engineering (MSc)

As an MSc in Software Engineering, you will work with the development of future intelligent products that will make life easier for the users. You can, for instance, become a software developer, IT and systems architect or project manager. You can develop mobile apps, IT security and online solutions.

A full master of science in engineering degree is a three-year bachelor degree combined with a two-year master programme. Half of your study comprises elective courses, a bachelor project and your master thesis. Moreover, it is possible to go abroad for one or two semesters.

Study environment


Each year more than 1500 international students from all over the world choose to study at the University of Southern Denmark, so you will become part of a lively international student environment.

We believe that engineers of today must have a global perspective and experience and we encourage international as well as Danish students to spend one or two semesters abroad on an internship or as exchange students.

Faculty of Engineering has adopted a student-centred approach to learning, and teaching is based on problem-based project work. Students participate significantly in class and carry out project work in small teams.

Learning environment based on project work and research


You will become part of a study based and cooperative learning environment in which you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. Usually, we receive the projects from companies - both from companies developing software and from companies buying software solutions.

Many different career opportunities


As a graduate, you will have a wide range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you will be qualified to take up positions as a software developer, mobile app developer, IT- and system architect, system consultant, software quality engineer and IT strategy manager. You might also continue your education in a 3-year research programme, leading to a PhD.

Entry requirements


1. A bachelor's degree in Software Engineering or a BEng in Information and Communication Technology.

2. English language skills.
