The Sino-Swedish Master's Programme

A specialisation within the Master's Programme in Computer Science at the Department of Information Technology.

The Sino-Swedish Master's Programme in Computer Science and Software Engineering is a specialisation within the Master's Programme in Computer Science at the Department of Information Technology.

The programme is offered jointly by two world class institutions: Uppsala University and the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan. Students spend one year at each of the universities and receive master's degrees from both institutions. Both universities teach in English. You will meet cutting edge researchers at both these universities, and will get a unique profile on your education.

Study in Sweden and Taiwan

Uppsala University is more focused on the theoretical aspects of computer science, while NTNU University has its strength in applications. You can also take courses on cultural aspects, such as language (particularly Chinese) or intercultural relationships. You can create your own specializations by combining courses individually.

Beginning in Uppsala, the Department of Information Technology offers you a wide range of courses in computer science. All students can create their own specialisation by individually selecting courses in dialog with student counsellors and teachers. Most courses integrate theory with practical exercises. By selecting suitable courses, you will become a specialist in different areas of computer science.

The second or third semester can be the exchange semester (30 credits). While abroad, you will learn to combine knowledge and experiences from two of the best universities in two very different cultures. The programme is concluded with a semester's work on your master's thesis (30 credits). The programme leads to a double master degree, that is, you will get one degree from each country.

The programme opens for an international career, as the international character of the program will enable you to establish professional and personal networks in both countries, and get contacts within the industry as well as academia in both Taiwan and Sweden.

Combine your studies with experience from two cultures, and learn to understand and appreciate different ways of thinking!
