This programme focuses on development of complex software systems - large software projects featuring millions of lines of code and advacnced techniques such as web services, distributed systems, component-based development and parallel processing.
Within software technology you study theories, methods and tools for efficient development of complex and high-quality software. The programme emphasises both theoretical and practical aspects of software development. It prepares you for a career as professional in software engineering, specifically as a specialist in efficient development of complex software systems, but you will also have the opportunity to pursue an academic career.
During the first year of the programme (shared with the one-year master programme), you will get a solid foundation in software technology through a number of general courses in computer science at advanced level. This is supplemented by studies of mathematics and research methodology that are relevant for the subjects.
In the second year we focus on the practical aspects of software technology. We present the latest tools within software development and often do project work together with industry or research groups. The education ends with a thesis work.
The first year provides a solid foundation in software technology and contains a number of general courses within computer science at advanced level. We also present general methods and techniques to handle common problems within software development. The second year is an extension of the depth of these studies and provides an insight into several application domains in Software Technology where theoretical knowledge can be applied. The programme is completed with a degree dissertation project.
This is supplemented by studies of mathematics and research methodology
which are relevant for the subject in question. The programme prepares students for a future academic career by presenting and applying established research methods and practice in several courses.
We continuously monitor the students' progression in terms of both individual
courses as well as the programme as a whole throughout the degree programme .
* Software Technology 22.5 higher education credits, A1N*

* Courses in the Main field of study Computer Science.
All courses in the programme are obligatory. All courses except Mathematics
(7.5 higher education credits, year 1) are within the main area. The sequence of courses in the programme may vary from one year to another. A number of courses have parts related to various aspects of scientific methods.
The degree project course during the first year involves a major software development project where topics such as team building, project management, project planning are studied together with the different phases that are a part of the software development process.
The Mathematics course during the first year (discrete mathematics) takes up aspects of Lattices, Graph Theory, and Abstract Machines.
The programme's students will at regular intervals during the programme meet
representatives from working life. Several courses involve invited speakers as guest
lecturers. In a couple of courses, projects are carried out in conjunction with companies or other organizations. Degree dissertation project work can be carried out in cooperation with a company.
During the second term of studies, study abroad at a foreign university is
possible. Course selection is made in consultation with the programme director to
ensure the validation of courses chosen within the degree programme.
Scope of the Programme
Computer science, the main subject in this degree programme, is largely about
developing and adapting new technologies for everyday use. The target audience for this is increasingly international. Ethical and legal questions around IT security are present in many of the programme's courses. Concepts like usefulness, user experience, target group adaption, availability, etc. are important in all courses. Concepts such as sustainable development, gender and equal opportunities, diversity and internationalization are a natural part of the degree programme.
Basic eligibility for second-level studies as well as special eligibility:
* Degree of Bachelor in Computer Science or the equivalent. Moreover, we expect all students entering the programme to have a solid practical experience of object-oriented programming.
* English B or the equivalent.
* an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
* For B: Score of 4.5 (scale 1-6) in written test and a total score of 575
* For B: Score of 20 (scale 0-30) in written test and a total score of 90
