Course info


This master programme is a two-year programme which builds on a three-year bachelor degree in Computer Science or equivalent. The objective is to provide you with advanced expertise in Computer Science with a focus on security, computer networks and wireless mesh networks.


The programme starts in the autumn term every year. The first term consists of two introductory courses in Computer Security and Computer Networking II followed by a module, Advanced Professional Skills designed to introduce ideas from Intercultural Studies, how research is performed and research methods. The second term consists of four advanced level courses in Computer Science with a focus on security, computer networks and wireless mesh networks. In the third term the student may choose which elective path to follow. The student may choose between such options as research or industry oriented electives, study abroad or a broader approach involving another subject area as long as the minimum requirements for a master degree are satisfied.

Form of Instruction

This is full-time course of study. Throughout the program instruction is given in the form of lectures, exercises, case studies, seminars, project work, and oral and written presentations. Students are expected to participate actively in class and study extensively on their own.

The programme offers a wide range of possibilities, from a research track for students wishing to continue to licentiate and PhD D studies to more practical applications, both of which may include an international aspect. You may combine for example the final dissertation in the 4th term with more industry oriented choices in the 3rd term if they are aiming for employment in industry. The programme provides a good background in current developments in the area of networks and wireless mesh networks and as such should enhance your employability.


Together with your previous bachelor degree, the programme leads to a master's degree of 120 ECTS credits in Computer Science. On completion of the programme you are qualified to continue with licentiate or doctoral studies provided that you meet the prerequisites for such studies in the chosen subject.
