Software has rapidly become the main driving force for innovation and future development of many different industries. For example the automotive industry, the telecom industry, the defense industry, the software industry itself with infrastructure software such as operating systems and middleware by e.g. Google, Microsoft, IBM, and enterprise software by e.g.Oracle and SAP AG, as well as various software for universities, governments, banks, and many other businesses.
As a consequence of this evolution, the critical importance of software in the society is continuously increasing. At the same time, size and complexity of software are constantly increasing alongside the pressure of speedy supply in turbulent environments with rapidly changing demands.
To meet these challenges and demands of delivering reliable and high quality software at high speed in turbulent environments, the Software Engineering Master program offers a unique combination of advanced technical knowledge and required management skills.
The programme is designed with a set of compulsory courses that provides a good coverage of the central areas of software engineering. The elective courses in the programme, in total 60hp together with the master thesis work enable students to specialize their education into selected profiles. Examples of recommended specializations are within software architecture, software modeling, verification and validation, software quality assurance, and software product and process management.
The first term is dedicated to build competences in recognizing and developing customer value through requirements engineering along with project and quality management. These skills form a solid base for students to actively engage in software development projects later in the programme. As the industry and society requires modern advanced software engineering methods, students will learn how to identify the best available methods and tools, get knowledgeable about the industrial field of software engineering, and practice group research activities. These are all highly relevant skills for software engineers in future software innovation and development.
The second term continues with advanced concepts within model-driven engineering, software processes with focus on agile methods, and software architecture. The students are also taught model-based testing that enables them to extend their knowledge on quality management and become more efficient in finding defects in software products.
The third term provides the student with the possibility to specialize their education into selected profiles within software engineering and management, or to extend his or her knowledge by choosing among several elective courses within the area of applied Information Technology, Computer Science or Information systems. The chosen specializations or extended areas are further developed in the master thesis work that follows in the final term.
Bachelor of science degree of 180 hec. Students with foreign education should have graduated have an examination corresponding to the Bachelor´s degree. A minimum of 90 hec in the area of Software Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, Information Systems or equivalent. Knowledge in programming, with the minimum of: 4.5 hec in object-oriented design, 7.5 hec in algorithms and data structures, 3 hec in software processes, and 15 hec in practical projects are required. English B level or English proficiency equivalent to IELTS 6.5 no part under 5.5 or TOEFL 575 p, TWE score 4.5 is also required.
