The growth and influence of software in business and our daily lives have been phenomenal. Software Engineering deals with design and development of high quality software systems and hence an increasingly important area in computer science. In these programs you will gain theoretical knowledge and excellent practical skills in software engineering.
During this programme, students will acquire fundamental knowledge and excellent expertise in engineering software intensive systems, which imply the ability to cope with complexity of understanding, designing and implementing such systems in the global work place. The students will obtain knowledge in principles for the analysis, design and implementation of large and complex software systems. The modern trends that will dominate future software development including component-based software engineering, service-oriented architectures, interoperability and global system development will be taught.
Our program reached new heights of excellence with recent successes at the software engineering project contest (SCORE) in ICSE, the topmost software engineering conference. During 2009, four of the ten teams that reached the finals including the final winning team was from our program. During 2010, two of our teams reached the finals including the runner-up in the competition.
A special feature of the program is its four different tracks known as industrial, research, general and international tracks. The industrial track will involve mentoring and thesis projects related to partner industries, where as the research track provides enhanced exposure to the state-of-the-art research themes. In the international track, a student has the possibility to study the second year at one of our partner universities in Europe and obtain a double degree (
This master programme is hosted by the Division of Software Engineering at Mälardalen University. The division has several internationally acclaimed researchers with proven records of excellence and active involvement in world leading conferences. The major areas of research at the division includes Component-Based Software Engineering, Software processes, Software Testing, and Dependable Software Engineering. All research is performed in projects with specific goals with respect to publications, collaborations, and prototype tools.
We transfer our research results to our education as far as possible. Most of the advanced level courses in the second year will cover state-of-the- art research in software engineering, and they will be taken jointly with the PhD students of the department.
The two-year Master Programme in Software Engineering provides you with advanced knowledge concerning the development of high quality software systems, which is essential for software architects, project leaders, and technical specialists, especially within a global development context.
The extensive research elements in the programme will also provide you with a head-start for an academic research career. After your studies, you will be able to work nationally or internationally as a software architect, developer or project manager in industry, or as academic researcher.
The programme consists of 90 credits of theoretical courses along with an independent
project (degree project) in Computer Science at second-cycle level, comprising 30 credits.

The programme consists of compulsory, elective and optional courses (optional in addition to the compulsory ones). The student will select at least 90 credits of courses at second-cycle level and a degree project in Computer Science at second-cycle level corresponding to 30 credits. The student also has the opportunity to choose between various projects, and also the specialisation of the degree project. All courses are selected in consultation with the programme coordinator to ensure the fulfilment of requirements for a degree.
The degree programme is so designed that the studies will lead towards fulfilment of the requirements for the following degree(s):
A completed Bachelor's degree from an institution of higher education of three years or more, equivalent to 180 credits, of which at least 90 credits are within Computer Science or Computer Engineering and at least 22,5 credits in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics.
A TOEFL test result, with a minimum score of 575 with a TWE score of at least 4.5 (PBT) or 90 with a TWE score of at least 20 (iBT) or an IELTS test result with an overall band score of at least 6.5 and no band score below 5.5 or equivalent is required.
|TOEFL paper-based test score:||575|
|TOEFL internet-based test score:||90|

Mälardalen University scholarship program
Mälardalen University offers a limited numbers of scholarships to students that have applied to us as their first or second choice.
The scholarship is aimed at especially qualified students coming from countries outside of EU/EEA/Switzerland and who are required to pay tuition fees.
The scholarship is NOT open for students from the twelve countries which Sweden has long-term development cooperation (Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
Students from these countries should instead apply for the Swedish Institute Study Scholarship (www.studyinsweden.se).
The scholarship will cover 100% of the tuition fee of the program as long as you follow the normal study plan (minimum 22,5 credits/semester, minimum 45 credits/academic year).
If you change your student status (from being a fee-paying student to a non-paying student) during the study period of the program you will no longer be granted the scholarship.
Only students admitted to Mälardalen Universitey will be granted the scholarship.
The scholarship does not cover living expenses.
