Structure of the education
Each academic year consists of two semesters which are 20 weeks each, and each semester is further divided into two study periods.
During the first study year, compulsory courses are taken, a total of 30 ECTS credits.
Beside the compulsory courses the students must follow a track in the computer science master. The track consist of 30 ECTS credits of compulsory or conditionally elective courses which will deepen the knowledge in a field of computer science.
A Programme Integrating Course, 2 ECTS credits, spread over two years is also compulsory for the programme.
The programme is concluded by a degree project, 30 ECTS credits.
Other courses are elective.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
