This master’s Applied Computer and Information Technology (ACIT) degree at Oslo Metropolitan University offers an expert-level education in the design, development, use and maintenance of computer technology, electronics and software in areas of great importance for modern societies.


We live in a world with computing devices surrounding us and, in some cases, working inside us. Technology is a part of how we entertain ourselves, communicate, govern and heal. Services that span the world open up for individuals to interact across the globe.

With technology comes new challenges:

  • The application of computers and electronics offers progress for many, but it may also close the doors for people with impairments.
  • We can communicate across the globe, but our communication can be intercepted and used against us.
  • Our data can be used to get new insight about our behavior, but the analysis is complex and requires ethical considerations whether the search for new knowledge is with the right intentions.
  • Artificial Intelligence offers to relieve many mundane tasks to robots, but consequences are potentially wide and may trigger deep changes in our civilisation.


The Applied Computer and Information Technology (ACIT) degree at Oslo Metropolitan University produces qualified senior professionals for both public and private sector, for example consulting engineers, and professionals in innovation and development.

Central positions as team lead and technical lead will be possible, and positions as consultant, developer, electrical, automation, biomedical and software engineer, ICT consultant, programmer, system developer etc.

The degree also qualifies for PhD programmes.
