University of Gothenburg Department of Computer Science and Engineering

Introduction

IT University is a joint organization between Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg, to support research, education and collaboration within IT and communication (ICT).

The focus of the network is on interdisciplinary projects and tasks, that involve several departments and faculties. There is also a focus on collaboration between academy, industry and society in ICT-related issues.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is shared between Chalmers and Gothenburg University and conducts research and education in many fields: algorithms, computer architecture, computer security, distributed systems, electronics design, formal methods, logic, networking, software technology, software engineering, language technology and reliable computer systems. Almost 150 different courses at some 20 degree programs on graduate and post graduate level.

Research at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering conducts extensive, high-quality, broad-based research, ranging from basic research to direct applications in collaboration with industry. Research at the department is at the forefront internationally in several areas.

Different aspects of reliability, in the development of both software and hardware, are a common theme in several of the department’s research groups. One example is basic research into how programming languages should be designed to make it easier to write error-free programs. Another example is methodology for developing reliability in the complex computer systems that are built into, for example, aircrafts.

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. What is the programme about? Computer Science (CS) is a full-spectrum Master's programme that provides a cutting-edge higher education in a wide range of areas, including the Science of Programming, Programming Languages, Algorithmics, Program Analysis, Databases, Logical Methods, Verification, Dependability, Security, Distributed Computing, Data Communication, Digital Systems, Computer Architecture, Computer Graphics, and Interaction Design. They correspond to areas within which we have strong, internationally recognised research groups, which are the driving force behind the education. What do you learn? You will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for a successful professional career in a large variety of information technology areas, both in industry and in academia. In particular, the programme enables you as a future IT professional to conceive, design, and implement systems which work correctly, are maintainable, and reliable. What jobs will you get? After graduation, you will be highly qualified... [-]

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. By working closely together with both researchers and practitioners in projects, you receive a wide range of opportunities to shape a career in industry or academia. The programme is structured around a set of recommended courses in the area of software engineering specialising in the following areas: - Managing software projects - Software architecture and modelling - Verification and validation - Implementation The education is to a large extent project- and problem-based, supervised by both researchers from the university and practitioners from industry. The students are working with real-world problems with connection to both research and practice. Compulsory courses - Project and Quality Management - Requirements Engineering -... [-]
