The COSSE program is a two-year (120 ECTS credits) master program on the advanced level (second cycle). The instruction language is English. Some elective courses are given in Swedish.

The programme consists of a block of compulsory core courses (~45 ECTS credits) which can be taken at any of the four partner universities.  This block is followed by courses within one of the following eight specializations:

KTH

  • biocomputing
  • computational material science

TUB

  • computational control theory
  • computational optimization

TUD

  • computational fluid dynamics
  • numerical linear algebra

FAU

  • scientific visualization and image processing
  • high performance computing

Core courses and specialization courses comprise ~75 ECTS credits.  With optional courses comprising ~15 ECTS credits, the total sum for the courses is at least 90 ECTS credits.  The concluding degree project within the chosen specialization comprises 30 ECTS credits.
