MSc in Computer science

The Computer science programme gives you a broad knowledge of information technology focussed on algorithmic techniques which form the basis for developing effective and secure modern software solutions. It also emphasises principles which will also be relevant in the next decade.

Mathematical and computer science research

Research in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Southern Denmark covers three core areas:

  • Applied mathematics
  • Computer science
  • Mathematics

Within the field of Computer science, there is a range of subjects which are researched in the department.

The Master’s degree in Computer science (MSc)

In the master’s 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) as well as your ability to express yourself clearly on academic subjects and mediate these to others.

The master’s programme thus qualifies you to participate in scienctific works and independently undertake business functions based on these abilities. The scientific aspect of the master’s programme is most evident in the final thesis project which lasts a year. Work on the project is done in close contact with a supervisor and often in connection to the supervisor’s own research.

It must be said, though, that the master’s programme is not a research degree as such. To achieve these credentials, one must complete a PhD.

A large part of the programme consists of a free choice of courses. The selection of these is updated every quarter. The end result is that you can piece together a very focussed degree, regardless of whether you aim for the business sector or teaching and research in Computer science.

Future and career

As a computer scientist, you have knowledge which guarantees you a career where you get to shape the future. With a degree in Computer science of the highest order, you can handle many different types of jobs and you will have the qualifications to gain new, complex skills independently.

You will play a part in developing new variants of central algorithms and data structures and thereby help construct computer hardware and operative systems. The solid academic base which you gain through your education means that you can adapt to many environments and companies are more likely to hire flexible workers with great potential for development. Unemployment among computer scientists from University of Southern Denmark is therefore virtually unknown.

Most computer scientists graduating from University of Southern Denmark are employed in private companies where the Computer science degree provides a very solid basis for a career in IT.

Computer scientists exist on all levels of companies from programme developers to project managers and executives in software divisions or companies.

The master’s degree in Computer science also provides teaching credentials on a high school level, and should you choose the path of research, the PhD qualifies you to teach and research at universities.
