Software is included in many aspects of our daily lives, both in companies and society in general. Therefore, there is a great need for software experts to develop products that are relevant to both consumers and businesses and which meet the needs of society.
During your studies in engineering, you learn to develop state-of-the-art software products and services. Simultaneously, you will be able to improve the products and services we know today. You will learn how technology is best used to develop efficient solutions – not only from a technical point of view but also from a user perspective.
Five subject areas
The study programme has four subject areas:
- Modeling and Simulation
- Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
- Software Ecosystems
- Data Science
- Innovative Software Solutions
Modelling and Simulation
Modeling and Simulation is the most widely used operations research / systems engineering technique for designing new systems and optimizing the performance of existing systems. In one way or another, just about every engineering or scientific field uses simulation as an exploration, modeling, or analysis technique. The subject area is included to provide students with basic knowledge of modeling and simulation approaches and experience of using them to solve real problems.
Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
Software is today used on the move on smartphones or watches. This enables a wealth of opportunities for engineering new software solutions.
Software exists in an ecosystem of applications, systems and resources. Well-functioning software will be designed for the ecosystem and take into account continuous changes in the ecosystem and the interplay between each element.
Data science is the extraction of knowledge from data. There will be particular focus on collection, filtering, processing, imaging and distribution of data. The development of effective and ethical methods of using enormous amounts of data is a huge challenge for science and for society as a whole.
Innovative Software Solutions
Software makes it possible to create new and unexpected solutions in the automation of activities and processes that were impossible with mechanical or analogue technologies. Read more about the programme structure
Project- and research-based learning environment
You will be part of a study-based and collaborative learning environment in which you work in project teams. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and implementing the project – and at the set deadline.
Take a look at what the students say about the programme
The education gives you a number of career opportunities – both in Denmark and abroad. For example, you can get a job as an IT- and system architect, software developer, mobile application developer, system consultant, software quality engineer and IT strategy manager.
You also have the possibility to continue your studies with a three year research programme, leading to a PhD degree.
