This master programme is a two-year programme which builds on a three-year bachelor degree in Computer Science or equivalent. The objective is to provide you with advanced expertise in Computer Science with a focus on security, computer networks and wireless mesh networks.
The Computer Science programme at University of Karlstad offers a wide range of possibilities, from a research track for students wishing to continue to licentiate and Ph D studies to more practical applications, both of which may include an international aspect. You may combine for example the final dissertation in the 4th term with more industry oriented choices in the 3rd term if they are aiming for employment in industry. The programme provides a good background in current developments in the area of networks and wireless mesh networks and as such should enhance your employability.
Together with your previous bachelor degree, the programme leads to a master's degree of 120 ECTS credits in Computer Science. On completion of the programme you are qualified to continue with licentiate or doctoral studies provided that you meet the prerequisites for such studies in the chosen subject.
