Description of Software Engineering 120 ECTS


Software has become an increasingly important element in many products being developed today. There has been a change in development costs from hardware development to software solutions. This increases the need to develop software based on the right functionality, quality, on time and in budget.

Master Programme in Software Engineering is designed to meet these challenges by educating software developers in advanced concepts within software engineering that covers the entire development chain, from management's perspectives to the technical and developing perspectives.

The programme is for two years and organised around a group of mandatory and elective courses.

All courses are designed to offer a mix of latest practice and latest findings. This is strengthened further of the fact to higher education has active research in all of the mandatory course subjects.

Teaching is conducted of professionals who have extensive contacts in industry and many of them are also active in a research group in software engineering. This research group is internationally recognized within the field and members of the group have won several prestigious awards over the years.
