The Master’s degree programme in Computer Science for working professionals improves your professional level and ability to independently search for and acquaint yourself with new and complex subject matters – qualities which are highly appreciated by employers of computer scientists. The result is a chance for higher pay and more career opportunities.
On the Master’s degree programme in Computer Science, you continue developing you insight into scientific theories and methods, your experience with working independently with complex problems (business related or scientific questions), and your ability to express yourself clearly on academic subjects and mediate these to others. Thus, the programme qualifies you to participate in scientific works and independently undertake business functions based on these abilities.
The scientific aspect of the programme is most evident in the Master’s thesis project, which has a weighting of 60 ECTS. Work on the project is done in close contact with a supervisor and is often related to the supervisor’s own research. It must be said, though, that a Master’s degree is not a research degree as such. To achieve a research degree, you must also complete a PhD programme.
A large part of the Master’s degree programme in Computer Science consists of elective courses, the offer of which is updated every semester. This allows you to piece together a very focused degree, regardless of whether you aim for a job in the business sector or in research and teaching.
Why you should study...
- The constituent courses give you a thorough knowledge of both practical subjects such as programming languages, and theoretical subjects such as characterisation of the boundaries for what is even calculable.
- In some areas of research and use, the line between Computer Science and Mathematics is very thin. At SDU we have highlighted this by placing both subject areas within the same department. This means great possibilities for collaboration between researchers and teachers.
- You will have excellent job opportunities both in Denmark and abroad.
Graduates of the programme are entitled to use the academic title Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science.
