Master's programme in Software Engineering
In today's digital society, modern software is increasingly demanding. Therefore, the need for highly educated experts in software engineering is constantly increasing, both nationally and internationally. In this programme you will learn how to develop and maintain high-quality software systems. After your studies you will be able to work as a software architect, developer or project manager in industry or as a researcher in academia.

In the Master’s programme in Software Engineering you learn to design, analyze, verify and implement complex software systems, with a particular focus on predictability and performance. The programme also covers the current trends and those that will dominate software development in the future, such as component- and model-based development, service oriented programming, interoperability and global system development.
During the programme you acquire knowledge and a deeper insight into software engineering in both industry and research. You will meet industrial guest lecturers, get an insight into how a modern hi-tech company work and have the opportunity to do your degree project in collaboration with one of our industry partners, such as ABB, Ericsson and Volvo. By working with teachers and researchers in research projects at the university, you gain access to the latest research in software engineering. In addition, you have the opportunity to refine your research skills through interaction with internationally recognized researchers.
There are also many opportunities to study parts of the programme abroad, either as an exchange student or by studying the second year at one of our partner universities in Europe, thereby taking a double degree through the GSEEM-programme or the NISS-programme.
Employment and Future Prospects
The Master’s programme in Software Engineering gives you in-depth knowledge of the development of high-quality software, which is necessary for programmers, project managers and technical specialists. After your studies you will be able to work nationally or internationally as a software architect, developer or project manager in industry, for example, or as a researcher in academia.
