Overview

DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

Modern society infrastructure is based on information technology. IT plays an essential role in our daily lives, and businesses are dependent on computers and communications equipment.

DTU has a strong and growing IT environment with competencies in areas such as safe and secure systems, system integration, distributed and embedded systems, networks, software engineering, algorithms and logic, system-on-chip, and digital systems. As a student on the programme, you will form part of this exciting environment.

Study programme focus

The Computer Science and Engineering programme at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is concentrated on the design and use of computing components—both software and hardware—to ensure our students become capable of solving technical problems efficiently and competitively. 

Focus is on understanding and using the right abstractions for advanced IT solutions which typically include both existing and future components. Computer Science and Engineering thus covers a wide range of courses in software development, safe and secure IT systems, algorithms and logic, and knowledge-based systems, and distributed and embedded systems.

Career

Computer Science and Engineering graduates from DTU are particularly attractive to both Danish and international companies and organizations.

  • Typical fields of work/career opportunities

Our graduates are highly qualified engineers capable of developing and producing complex IT systems with integrated hardware and/or software components based on theoretically and technologically well-founded methods, tools, and techniques. 

Therefore, Computer Science and Engineering graduates typically find jobs in a wide range of Danish and international companies involved in IT, electronics, and communication.

  • Pursue a PhD

Once you have an MSc in Engineering, you might get the opportunity to continue your studies and apply for admission to the three-year PhD programme, which at DTU is a research-based programme ranking among the best in the world. You can do either a regular PhD or an industrial PhD, the latter with concurrent employment in a company.
