Computer Science

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

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.

Being the largest city in Sweden, Stockholm has over 1.3 million people in the urban area. The city comprises of several Islands and it is the capital city of Sweden. Stockholm has over 10 universities and colleges.

Distance Master's Programme in Decision analysis and Data science

Stockholm University, Department of Computer and System Sciences (DSV)
Online Full time 2 years September 2019 Sweden Stockholm

Students learn how to employ decision support systems, risk management and the basics of data science. The second year students choose track and deepens the knowledge in either decision analysis or data science. This programme is suitable for graduates from various disciplines. [+]

We run into decision problems almost everywhere, and a proper handling of them is fundamental for a well-functioning society. Decisions that are not thought through and made by gut feeling often lead to unfavourable consequences. In this programme you will learn how to handle decision situations in a systematic way so that preferred consequences are probable.

You will be made familiar with all the stages in decision making, from selecting, gathering and processing background information, structuring of the problem and assessing the consequences to making the actual decision based on rational principles.

Programme outline

The programme has two tracks: data science or decision and risk analysis. In the first year you will learn about both subject areas and in the second year you will specialise in either one.... [-]


Master’s Programme in Design for Creative and Immersive Technology

Stockholm University, Department of Computer and System Sciences (DSV)
Campus Full time 2 semesters September 2019 Sweden Stockholm

Students learn the basics for design for creative and immersive technology as well as the basics for Internet of Things.

Furthermore, it is investigated how these platforms can use virtual environments to interact with society. [+]

Life has changed profoundly with the arrival of the digital age, but we are still only in the infancy of the development. Innovative technology and the ways we interact with it has facilitated social connections and sped up communication infrastructure, but also disrupted older media and foundational societal structures. While society is still struggling to grasp the effects of social media and smartphones, further developments are rapidly underway in creative and immersive technologies such as the Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, eXtended Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to name only a few.

In a chaotic and rapidly changing technological landscape, there is an urgent need for people who understand all three core aspects of design: technology itself, the individual user and societal implications of introducing new technology. This program will train you to create new technology, while heeding user needs and wants as well as larger societal transformations.... [-]

Master in Machine Learning

KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Sweden Stockholm

The scientific discipline of Machine Learning focuses on developing algorithms to find patterns or make predictions from empirical data. The discipline is increasingly used by many professions and industries (for example manufacturing, retail, medicine, finance, robotics, telecommunications), as it can help create order in large amounts of digital data to solve difficult problems such as understanding human behaviour and providing efficient resource allocation. Demand for graduates with substantive expertise in machine learning far exceeds supply. The programme here at KTH equips you for a career in industry (a start-up or a traditional well-established company) and will also prepare you for further studies at PhD-level. [+]
