New master's degree in computer science at JU
Jönköping University is increasing its educational offering and will start a new master's degree programme in computer science at the School of Engineering next autumn, 2021.
“There are many companies in the region, and also nationally, that need to employ qualified students who have deeper technical knowledge in IT. That is why we are starting a five-year master's degree programme in computer science. The new programme is developed in collaboration, based on the companies’ needs, and is linked to JU’s research in artificial intelligence (AI) and computer science,” says Patrik Cannmo, Associate Dean of Education at the School of Engineering.
The Master’s degree programme in Computer Science and Engineering is in Swedish only. The two final years of the education will be in English as it is a complete joint reading with the international master's program AI Engineering.
The two final years of the education will consist of the master’s program in AI Engineering.
The School of Engineering has greatly expanded its research in recent years and the number of registered students in the study programmes has increased significantly. The Master of Science in Computer Science is the second master's degree in engineering that starts after industrial product development. The School of Engineering already provides Bachelor of Science in Engineering (högskoleingenjör), as well as bachelor’s and master’s programmes.
Basic science semester in January
The master's degree programme in computer science will start in August 2021, but already in January the basic science year begins, which is linked to the new master's degree programme. This is for students who need to improve their qualifications in mathematics, physics and chemistry before the programme starts.
