Degree:Master
Field of Study:Computer Science
Description:The Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science is a broad-based program that covers concepts from engineering, science and business with the aim of producing high-quality software professionals. The aim of the MSc program is to produce a new breed of computer science graduates that have a broad background in information technology along with project management and people skills. Graduates of this program will not only have strong technical expertise in their particular field, but will also have the ability to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams and be able to tackle problems that require both technical and non-technical solutions.

The MSc program differs from most existing computer science programs as it concentrates on both applied research and the development of professional skills. The intention is that most of the graduates from this program will build careers in industrial research and software development. The program focuses on the skills required for successful careers in industry, reflecting the university's goals to be market-oriented and to provide high-quality professional education.

The MSc program provides students with the opportunity to work in teams and develop leadership skills. Students are also given ample opportunity to develop their written and oral communication skills. MSc students are strongly encouraged to present their research results at scientific conferences.
