The Master´s programme in Software Engineering will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to engineer software systems from the initial planning and scoping of projects through to the process of development, testing, and delivery of the software system itself. The courses cover both engineering and working methodologies and you will study subjects such as project planning, software quality, specification management and research methodology.
The programme was developed to meet the needs of students, industry and academia. It has a strong focus on preparing you for employment in both business and research organisations, and elective courses allow students to create their own skills profiles.
The programme consists of 120 credits and leads to a two-year Master’s degree.

Course Content

The Master´s programme in Software Engineering prepares you to develop software that addresses many of the challenges of the modern world. You will learn how to build products using emerging technologies such as the cloud, smart networks and the internet of things. MSc in Software Engineering students are people who want to become software architects and leaders of development teams. The programme provides you with the qualifications required to apply for software engineering positions in world-leading companies and opens the door towards software engineering research.
The Master´s programme in Software Engineering introduces you to the dynamic development of scalable, secure, reliable and high-performance software that delivers great user experience. By drawing on the lecturers’ industry and research experiences, you will develop the skills to plan, design, and develop software, to manage local and global projects, and to evaluate the real-world impact of your software. For future software engineers, the programme provides a supportive environment where you can experiment with your own ideas for software. Internship opportunities offered by companies will prepare you for work in the industry. For future researchers, the programme offers a guided experience of doing authentic research. The BTH environment will connect you with leading researchers who will inspire you

Learning outcomes After completion of the programme the student shall:
  • Have understanding for problems, theories and challenges within large scale software engineering.
  • Have broad understandings for methods within software engineering.
  • Have deep method knowledge within parts of software engineering.
  • Have necessary skills to adapt available methods to the problem at hand.
  • Have the ability to identify strengths and weaknesses within methods, results as well as prepare improvement suggestions.
  • Have the ability to lead investigations using appropriate scientific methods.
  • Have the ability to critically assess problems, solutions and results.
  • Have the ability to take a scientific approach to the work performed.
  • Have the ability to reflect over ethical and social aspects of Software Engineering.

Requirements

Admission Criteria
GENERAL
This method has the purpose of assessing the applicants’ competency for studies at, among others, the Master Programmes in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering.
BASES FOR RANKING OF APPLICANT
Previous university studies and English.
DETAILS ON BASES FOR SELECTION:
The first step of the ranking process is an assessment of the relevance of the area and specialisation of the applicants’ previous university studies to the applied programme. This assessment is made in three categories: minimal relevance = merit points 0, average relevance = merit points 0.5, high relevance = merit points 1.
Finally, the applicants’ TEOFL or IELTS level in English is normalised to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to pass the prerequisites of the applied programme and 1 is the maximum level of the test. Applicants’ who are not required to prove their English skills with TOEFL or IELTS tests will get the merit point 1.
These two merit point values are added to a total merit value between 0 and 2
MAXIMUM MERIT RANKING:
A maximum of 2 merit points will be given, according to the above given details.
WORK METHOD:
Applications that are accepted for review based on the basic requirements for the programme will be ranked according to the details above. If not all applicants with the same lowest merit point can be admitted, a preference is given to the gender that is least represented at the programme, and if further selection is needed lots will be drawn.

International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to universities in Sweden when:

  • You are considered ineligible for admission
  • You need to improve your academic, study, research or language skills

Blekinge Institute of Technology

Karlskrona, Sweden

Sweden Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) conducts education and research at a high international level in which engineering and IT are integrated with other disciplines such as urban planning, industrial economics, design and health sciences to contribute to solving the challenges facing society. Everything we do has three distinct perspectives: innovation, sustainability and in real life, which means cooperation and exchange with both business and industry as well as society.
