This Computer Science: Algorithms, Languages and Logic programme at the Chalmers University of Technology offers a comprehensive foundation in the science of programming. It gives the student a strong basis for developing the computer applications of today and tomorrow and for conducting innovative research and promoting development.
The core of the programme covers four main areas of computing science
The optional segment of the programme offers the student a broad range of courses in other areas of computer science, bioinformatics, software engineering, mathematics and other relevant areas.
The programme is intended for students who wish to study the core areas of computer science on an advanced level in order to prepare themselves for research and development in the software industry. It also provides an ideal basis for academic research in computer science.
Most students will have a BSc in computer science. However, the programme can also serve as a conversion course for students with BSc in related subjects, such as mathematics, physics or engineering sciences, provided they have basic knowledge of mathematics and programming, and have completed an introductory computer science course such as data structures or algorithms.
You will acquire a strong computer science background and thus gain access to a wide range of opportunities in the information technology industry. Students acquire lasting subject knowledge and are in a good position to understand and contribute to technological advances.
The programme also provides the student with an excellent background for future PhD studies in computing, which can lead to a career as an academic researcher or computing teacher.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
