Master programmes at the department of IT
We offer five master programmes. Each programme consists of two years of studies, including a half year Master's project in industry or at the university.
- Computer Science: This programme offers a broad education in Computer Science, including design, implementation and evaluation of computer systems, with a focus on software.
- Sino-Swedish Master Programme in Computer Science and Software Engineering: The Sino-Swedish specialisation offers at least one semester of studies at a university in China. You will have the opportunity to live in two cultures, and form close ties with two cities in different countries - which in turn will open doors in an international labour market.
- Computational Science: A multidisciplinary programme, ranging from advanced computers and software to chemistry, biology, physics and engineering. The focus is the use of computer simulation in natural sciences and engineering.
- Embedded Systems: This programme provides candidates with a world class education in computer and systems engineering science, with a focus on embedded systems programming and design.
- Master Programme in Concurrent and Parallel Programming: The master program is a specialisation within the master program in computer science at the department of information technology at Uppsala University. The program was conceived and developed at the UPMARC research centre for parallel programming on multicore architectures, which is a world-class research centre at the university.
We are also deeply involved in another master programme, which is hosted by the Department of Informatics and Media:
- Human-Computer Interaction: The programme focuses on all issues involved in creating usable IT-systems. Most of the courses are based on projects which use real-world problems through our cooperation with leading Swedish companies.
- The programmes offered consist of 90 credits of courses and a thesis project of 30 credits (alternatively 75 credits of courses and a 45 credit thesis).
- One semester of studies, 20 weeks, is equal to 30 credits. Courses are typically 5 or 10 credits. Some extra courses are offered during the summer.
