Computer Science

A masters is awarded to students who have completed postgraduate level study in a specific field of study or area of professional practice while demonstrating a high level of mastery during the process.

There are several fields that make up the broader field of computer science. One of these fields is the computational complexity theory, which can be very abstract. Other fields, such as computer graphics, deal more with concrete and hands-on visuals.  

 

Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. Sweden borders Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund. Sweden is a developed post-industrial society with an advanced welfare state. The standard of living and life expectancy rank among the highest in the world.

An international program where you can choose between five different tracks - each of them corresponding to internationally recognized research at our department.

Computer science (CS) is the study of the theory of information and computation and its implementation and application in computer systems. Computer science has many sub-fields; some emphasize the computation of specific results (such as computer graphics), while others (such as the theory of algorithms) relate to properties of computational problems. Still, others focus on the challenges in implementing computations. For example, programming language theory studies approach to describing computations, while computer programming applies specific programming languages to solve specific computational problems. ...
