University of Gothenburg Department of Computer Science and Engineering

Introduction

IT University is a joint organization between the 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 postgraduate 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 a 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. ...

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. ... [-]
