You will learn the methods for constructing computer programmes, including theoretical foundations and the practical ability to develop products and systems. During the programme, you will meet prominent guest lecturers from the industry and guest lecturers from other universities.
The Computer Science programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technolog starts with mandatory courses in advanced algorithms, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer security, internet protocols, and research methodology to give you an insight into different areas of computer science. In the second semester, you choose one of the eight specialisations to gain in-depth knowledge in a field of computer science. The specialisations are closely connected to the department’s world-class research groups.
The master's programme in Computer Science focuses on the acquisition of skills necessary for a career at the frontline of modern software technology. Graduates have found work at companies such as Google (USA, Switzerland), Spotify, Oracle, Ericsson, Dice and Accenture.
The programme also prepares students for a career in research or continued studies towards a doctoral degree. Former students have continued their studies on doctoral level in among other Sweden, US, Germany, Russia.
