The Computer Science - Sino-Swedish Master - Software Engineering is offered jointly by two world class institutions: Uppsala University and the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan. The Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University is world leading in computer science research. Courses are taught by experts in their field and are always up to date.

About

The Computer Science - Sino-Swedish Master - Software Engineering from Uppsala University is a specialisation in the Master Programme in Computer Science, and is offered in cooperation with the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan. 

The programme gives you the same unique opportunity to customise and specialise your education as the Master Programme in Computer Science, in combination with added expertise in a subject of your choice from this leading Asian university. The doubled subject competence along with the rewarding experience of studies on another continent gives you a truly international education. 

You also have the opportunity of graduating from two universities. By living and studying in two different cultures, and making close ties to cities and people in two different countries, leads to a personal and professional development that opens for an international labour market in both advanced industry and cutting-edge research.

Career

Most of our students continue on to jobs in the commercial IT-sector, as project managers or consultants in advanced product development or applied research, where they work to develop future products. Some students start their own businesses to develop ideas they came up with during their studies. The programme is also a great stepping-stone for doctoral studies.

Programme Structure

We teach in an international environment that provides you with a worldwide network of professional contacts: researchers, teachers and fellow students.

Students spend their first year in Uppsala, and the second year in Taipei and receive Master’s degrees from both universities. 

Uppsala University is more focused on the theoretical aspects of computer science, while NTNU University is particularly strong in applications. At NTNU you can also take courses on cultural aspects, such as language or intercultural relationships. You can create your own specialisations by combining courses individually.
