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 in scientific methods and in agile software development.

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, either in the industry or at the university.

This Software Technology programme is offered by Linnaeus University.
After this programme, you will probably work as a software developer at a consultancy firm or at the IT department of a big enterprise. From that you can move on to work as a project coordinator, a software technology expert, or possibly as a manager. You will also have the opportunity to pursue an academic career, starting with a PhD education.
Master of Science (two years) with specialization in software technology. Major subject: computer science.
