Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth. Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media. As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
Computer Science is the science and art of writing efficient, correct, and user friendly programs for computers. This implies that you deal with all kinds of computer related problems and cooperate with many other disciplines that require complex problem solving. As a computer scientist you thereby get a good insight into many disciplines. The IT society has a large need for people with expert knowledge of computer science, and the computer scientists’ education, with the combination of theory and practice, make them well suited to meet these demands. You therefore find computer scientists in all labour sectors. The majority work in developing and in the consulting business, within the private as well as the public sector. Also research work and education in both industry and academy is part of the computer scientists’ labour sector. In addition, computer scientists constitute a resource of increasing importance for new assignments in the knowledge and information society. Apart from single subject courses, the Department also offers a Bachelor’s Programme in Computer Science, 180 HECs, and a Master’s Programme in Computer Science, 120 HECs.
