Individual Exam Programme

You will compose an individual study programme, which will consist of:

  • Common Core courses (25 EC)
  • Computer Science theme courses (2x 15 EC)
  • Research course (5 EC)
  • Elective courses (15 EC)
  • Thesis Project (45 EC)

You build up your individual study programmes according to these guidelines, and can choose for either a broader orientation or an in-depth specialization. During the master programme, you get in touch with a variety of innovative and effective educational methods. The programme consist of practical and theoretical work.

At the start of the masters programme, you will be guided in composing your individual master’s programme. Information provided in the Study Guide and on Brightspace about the Computer Science programme and master courses can help you in composing your master’s programme.

Master Thesis

Specializing in the master programme

In the first year you will spend time on common courses and Computer Science theme courses, which is a coherent set of three courses around a Computer Science topic. In the fourth quarter (Q4) of the first year you will take a research course to prepare for the master’s thesis in year to. In Q4, you will also agree on a topic and supervisor for your master’s thesis. Under supervision of a Computer Science supervisor from one of our research groups, you will do your master’s thesis project.

Master thesis

In the second year, you will join one of the research groups for your thesis project, in which you will demonstrate your capacity to successfully carry out a research project. At the end, you wrap up the project with a public presentation of the results in your thesis.

Extra Curricular Activities
