Knowledge and understanding

The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should: 

  • have fundamental knowledge within Computer Science and Engineering
  • have profound knowledge in mathematics, i.e. have the ability to explain and carry out mathematical reasoning and define and analyse mathematical models.
  • have knowledge in human- and natural sciences, especially such knowledge which has consequences for design of computerized systems.
  • have knowledge about industrial entrepreneurship and relevant legislation.

Skills and abilities

The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should:

  • have prerequisites and abilities to participate in and develop the practices which are applied in industry, administration, and academic research.
  • have the ability to independently define and solve computer-related construction problems.
  • have the prerequisites for successful work in international and multidisciplinary project groups which consist of people from both technical and non-technical backgrounds. This includes the ability to orally, and in writing, present as well as argue in Swedish and English.

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should:

  • Independently analyse and adopt a standpoint on economical, societal, environment-related and ethical consequences of computer science applications, and to design systems concerning this.
  • Through self-development, retain one’s professional abilities during a professional career.
  • Follow and promote the discussion concerning technology in society.
