Master of Science Programme in Software Engineering (120 ECTS)

Software has become an increasingly important element in many products being developed today. There has been a change in development costs from hardware development to software solutions. This increases the need to develop software based on the right functionality, quality, on time and in budget.

Master Programme in Software Engineering is designed to meet these challenges by educating software developers in advanced concepts within software engineering that cover the entire development chain, from management's perspectives to the technical and developing perspectives.

The programme is for two years and organised around a group of mandatory and elective courses. The mandatory courses provide a broad based and cover more advanced topics like software engineering industry is currently in need of. In addition, securing a general basis for all students. The elective courses give students with the opportunity to specialise in particular perspectives and thus helps to increase their attractiveness of future employers in a way as the student chooses. All courses are designed to offer a mix of latest practice and latest findings. This is strengthened further of the fact to higher education has active research in all of the mandatory course subjects.... [-]

Master's programme in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability

The society within the biosphere is to its nature a much complex system. To achieve success in this system, i.e. a sustainable society, knowledge of how success is defined and how it can be achieved is required. On the basis of a fundamental vision of a sustainable society, one can through “backcasting” formulate a strategy to reach the desired aim.

This programme extends over two semesters and concentrates on two integrated themes. The first of these themes is an internationally recognized and scientifically reviewed model (framework) of systematic work towards an attractive and sustainable society (strategic sustainable development). This is a universal model which can be used to work with sustainable development within many different fields globally, nationally, in companies, in municipalities, in whole societies and on the individual level. ...
