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.

Normally conducted courses is built up with lectures (many students at the same time), lectures/exercises (approximately 30 students) and laboratory (approximately 15 students). It may also occur group work and individual questioning. The element of "distance" education in which students use the Internet and web to take part of course materials is increasing from year to year but is currently quite small. A private student laptop computer (laptop) with the relevant performance is a requirement. Since education objective is a professional engineer and that project work is a common approach for engineers to collaborate there are project courses in which students work together in project teams


The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list

Grading system

Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.

Grading scale is found in the course syllabus.

For further studies, special admission requirements for the course are to be fulfilled. Special admission requirements are listed in the respective course syllabus.

Degree project

The degree project is the final part of the education. The project work may begin when special admission requirements for the course are fulfilled.


Degree is entitled “Högskoleingenjörsexamen” - Bachelor of Science in Engineering. The text on the degree certificate states the educational programme, computer engineering, completed by the student.
