Quality Teaching in an Informal Setting

The Master’s programme in Computer Science is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal learning environment. Our in-ternational teaching staff expect students to take an active part in the programme, and staff–student consultation is always encouraged. The teaching is a mix of lectures and classes, with preparatory work in study groups.

Student Life

The Computer Science department has a range of social spaces for get¬ting together with fellow students outside class, and these are an excellent basis for both study-related and social activities. Our new study café is also a great place to get together and work with your study group. The department and our various student associations organise a variety of events and tech talks in collaboration with local and international companies. 

As a first-year student, you will also be allocated a mentor to guide and support your studies throughout the year.  

Careers

Computer scientists continue to be in great demand all over the world, and AU computer science graduates have a very good reputation. Many Aarhus IT companies are on the lookout for graduates and student employees for part-time jobs. Recent graduates have been recruited by leading IT companies all over the world in areas such as software development, consultancy work, project management, and research.

Academic Requirements

Students need to have a bachelors degree giving a thorough background in computer science. This should include: computation theory (formal languages and compilation, mathematical logic and undecidability, design and analysis of algorithms, and data structures), programming (object-oriented programming, functional programming, software architecture, and interaction design), and systems (computer architecture, operating systems, distributed systems, security, databases).

For students who meet these requirements, we offer a number of specialisations, such as cryptology, algorithmics, programming languages, HCI, and ubiquitous computing and interaction.
