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.
