The master's programme in Computer Science provides a broad education in computer science. Students acquire a solid foundation in advanced algorithms, computer security, artificial intelligence and internet protocols, and gain expertise through specialisation tracks. Graduates pursue careers at the forefront of software-based technologies, for example, software engineers, game developers, and IT project managers, or go on to PhD studies in order to pursue careers in research labs or in academia.

Computer Science at KTH

The master's programme in Computer Science provides a broad education in computer science with the possibility to specialise in different subjects. You will learn the methods for constructing software systems, including theoretical foundations and the practical ability to develop products and systems. During the programme, you will meet prominent guest lecturers from the industry and guest lecturers from other universities.

The programme starts with mandatory courses in advanced algorithms, artificial intelligence, computer security, internet protocols, and research methodology to give you an insight into different areas of computer science. In the second semester, you choose one of the seven specialisations to gain in-depth knowledge in computer science. The specialisations are closely connected to the department's world-class research groups.

Data Science

In the Data Science specialisation, you will learn methods for managing and analysing data from various sources, such as biomolecular sequence data, images and video, text.

Interaction Design

In the Interaction Design specialisation, you will learn to design and develop interactive systems with modern development methodologies. The specialisation also provides a more profound knowledge of how to systematically evaluate interactive systems.

Cognitive Systems

In the Cognitive Systems specialisation, you will learn how to develop applications with artificial intelligence - abilities traditionally associated with humans. In the specialisation, you can focus on robotics and computer vision or conversational systems, for example, systems that interact through human language, such as voice assistants, social robots and chatbots.

Scientific Computing

In the Scientific Computing specialisation, you focus on techniques for mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of physical, chemical and biological systems. These techniques are used as the basis for virtual experiments when, for example, simulating crash tests and when building interactive virtual environments, for example, for computer games.

Software Technology

In the Software Technology specialisation, you will explore the methods and tools for designing, developing and maintaining different types of software. Within the specialisation, you can focus on programming languages, compilers and program semantics or on software engineering, automated testing and large-scale development of reliable and secure software.

Theoretical Computer Science

In the Theoretical Computer Science specialisation, you learn about abstract and mathematical methods to study algorithms. You learn to use formal methods and focus on the verifiable properties of software and software systems.

Visualisation and Interactive Graphics

The Visualisation and Interactive Graphics specialisation stretches from basic visualisation and graphics to modern research in the field. Visualisation is mainly about making large and complex data understandable with the help of graphics but has applications in computer games and other virtual environments.

The programme also consists of 28 ECTS credits (about one semester) of elective courses, from which you can choose from a wide range of courses within computer science, to specialise further in your field of interest or broaden to new areas within computer science. The programme ends with the master's degree project, which involves participating in advanced research or design projects in an academic or industrial environment in Sweden or abroad.

This is a two-year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly on the KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (at KTH).
