Content The programme spans 120 higher education credits (ECTS) and is divided into four semesters. The first semester starts with a course focusing on the three roles, followed by a project where the objective is to work on a real problem where all three roles are needed to solve it. During the second semester, if you have a background in SE, you will get the opportunity to broaden your knowledge base by choosing courses in other subjects. Otherwise, you can study courses with a traditional SE content. The second semester also contains a project, where you assume one of the roles. You continue to focus on this role when you choose courses for the third semester and start your thesis preparation. During the fourth semester you concentrate solely on the master thesis project. In this programme, you work closely with researchers work on projects during all semesters. These will often be related to a real problem introduced by company. This way scientific quality can be combined with industrial relevance. Theoretical courses are provided as well, with a mix of seminars and group activities with presentations by visiting researchers and practitioners. [-]
