The following courses are part of study year four.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2012/2013. For other academic years, different application codes and study periods may apply.

General courses

Batch 09 take the forth study year during 2012/13.

During study years 4 and 5 the students follow a master program of their choice. For each year a list of master programs that may be chosen is established. 

Each master's program has eligibility requirements that must be fulfilled.

For some master's programs special requirements have to be fulfilled.

Master programs to choose between

Batch 09 may choose between the following master's programs:

  • Computer science
  • Machine learning
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Scientific computing
  • Network systems and services
  • Systems, control and robotics
  • Wireless systems
  • Embedded systems
  • Communication systems
  • Software engineering of distributed systems
  • System on chip design, track  Embedded System-on-Chip Platforms
  • Industrial management
  • Mathematics, track Mathematics may not be chosen
  • Medical engineering

Students may also choose one of the following Erasmus Mundus programs and apply for them as any student outside of KTH (seat is not guaranteed).

  • Computer simulation for science and engineering
  • Systems biology

Special conditions for the master of science of engineering degree

Degree project (only for students choosing a master's program outside of the CSC school)

For a student who within the selected Master program does a degree project examined by any other school than CSC, the program director for the Master of science of engineering program in Computer Science and Engineering must approve the specification and the final report to certify the relevance and quality of the degree project in relation to the program. The student is responsible for delivering the specification as well as the final report to the program director.

Requirements for certain choices of elective courses

Industrial management

In order to get a degree of master of science in engineering in Computer science and engineering the student must have at least 90 credits at second level, of which at least 60 credits (including a 30-credit degree project) must be within the framework of the engineering area. Since the courses in industrial management are not within the framework you must choose 30 credits within the framework and also choose a task for the degree project that makes makes the degree project be within the framework.

Mathematics

The track mathematics may not be chosen.

Medical engineering

In order to get a degree of master of science in engineering in Computer science and engineering the student must have at least 90 credits at second level, of which at least 60 credits (including a 30-credit degree project) must be within the framework of the engineering area. Since the courses in medical engineering are not within the framework you must choose 30 credits within the framework and also choose a task for the degree project that makes makes the degree project be within the framework.

System on chip design

The track Embedded System-on-Chip Platforms must be chosen.

International Profile (INT)

Courses (INT)

Batch 09 take the forth study year during 2012/13.

During study years 4 and 5 the students follow a master program of their choice. 

Since the students on the international profile take language courses during study years 4-5 the choice of master programs is more limited. The student has three possibilities:

  1. Take the master program in Computer science that offers a sufficient number of credits for elective courses.
  2. In consultation with the program co-ordinator and the international co-ordinator investigate the possibilities of chosing another master program.
  3. In consultation with the program co-ordinator and the international co-ordinator skip some of the mandatory courses from the selected master program and only receive the degree of Master of Science in Engineering degree (civilingenjör) and not the degree of Master of Science.
