Computer Science

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

The foundations of computer science actually date back to before the modern computer had actually been created. For instance, algorithms for computing have been around for hundreds of years. One book of Sanskrit algorithms dates back to 800 BC.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Gothenburg city is located in the west coast of Sweden. It is the 2nd largest city in the country and has over 500,000 inhabitants. Gothenburg has two universities Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.

An international programme where you can choose between five different tracks - each of them corresponding to internationally recognised 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 emphasise 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 approaches to describing computations, while computer programming applies specific programming languages to solve specific computational problems. ...

The master’s programme in Software Engineering is based on one of our strong research profiles and is also run in very close collaboration with industry. The programme is coupled to the newly established Software Center, which is a joint initiative by Chalmers and University of Gothenburg together with industry partners.

The programme focuses on three key roles in software system development: Software Project Manager, Software Architect, and Software Quality Manager. The main perspectives for each of these roles are:

Understanding industrial practices Supporting practices with new methods and tools Innovating practices to improve performance

The master’s education in Software Engineering is targeting students who want to deepen their knowledge about model-driven engineering, software architectures, quality management, project management, and gain practical experience from working in software projects. There is also a potential for deeper studies in programming and design. ... [-]

Master in Language Technology 


Master in Language Technology (MLT) is a program for students who want to make computers use and understand human language. It will give students a hands-on practical training based on well-grounded theory, enabling them to pursue a specialist career in the area of language technology.



The program is run jointly by Humanities and Information Technology Faculties at University of Gothenburg, and Computer Science at Chalmers University of Technology. Students will also get access to the Centre for Language Technology, an interdisciplinary center where ideas and projects become reality.



Language technology research and teaching in Gothenburg are characterized by a focus on the contribution of theoretical and rule-based approaches appropriately combined with statistical techniques. Students therefore receive instruction in linguistic theory as applied to language technology as well as modern approaches to language technology.
