The master’s programme in Software Engineering is based on one of our strong research profiles and is also run in very close collaboration with industry. The programme is coupled to the newly established Software Center, which is a joint initiative by Chalmers and University of Gothenburg together with industry partners.
The programme focuses on three key roles in software system development: Software Project Manager, Software Architect, and Software Quality Manager. The main perspectives for each of these roles are:
The master’s education in Software Engineering is targeting students who want to deepen their knowledge about model-driven engineering, software architectures, quality management, project management, and gain practical experience from working in software projects. There is also a potential for deeper studies in programming and design.
By working closely together with both researchers and practitioners in projects, you receive a wide range of opportunities to shape a career in industry or academia.
The programme is structured around a set of recommended courses in the area of software engineering specialising in the following areas:
The education is to a large extent project- and problem-based, supervised by both researchers from the university and practitioners from industry. The students are working with real-world problems with connection to both research and practice.
Additional elective courses are available.
The programme is entirely given in English and we welcome students from all countries. The Software Engineering Master's programme has been selected by the Swedish Institute to nominate candidates for scholarships.
