Life has changed profoundly with the arrival of the digital age, but we are still only in the infancy of the development. Innovative technology and the ways we interact with it has facilitated social connections and sped up communication infrastructure, but also disrupted older media and foundational societal structures. While society is still struggling to grasp the effects of social media and smartphones, further developments are rapidly underway in creative and immersive technologies such as the Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, eXtended Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to name only a few.
In a chaotic and rapidly changing technological landscape, there is an urgent need for people who understand all three core aspects of design: technology itself, the individual user and societal implications of introducing new technology. This program will train you to create new technology, while heeding user needs and wants as well as larger societal transformations.
Career You will qualify positions such as immersive technology specialist, interaction designer, change agent, project manager, innovator and entrepreneur in novel technology. Graduates may also enter Ph.D. programmes to pursue a career in academic or industrial research.
Programme outline

The programme is directed towards students with previous degrees with a technical background in computer and systems sciences.
The first year will reconcile the students’ backgrounds in technology and social sciences and introduce students to academic research on an advanced level.
The second year will concern technological innovations and society. Students will be provided ample opportunities to pursue their own interests in creative and immersive technology in student-driven projects connected to current research projects at our department.
Required supporting documentation Along with your supporting documents at univeristyadmissions.se, you are required to submit a separate form with a list of proof of specific entry requirements.

Do you want to develop the information technology, computers and mobile phones of the future? Computer and Systems Sciences is an interdisciplinary area of interest of which programming is an important part. It also covers the interaction between human beings, computers and organizations. Computer and Systems Sciences offers plenty of opportunity to find a profession that suits you, regardless of whether you want to develop and design games or business systems, work within programming or try to create the perfect interaction between a computer and a human being.

More about Computer and Systems Sciences

Subject

Computer and Systems Sciences

Information technology gives us new opportunities, and affects more and more parts of our daily lives. Boundless communication, advanced computers and software allows us to create new professional roles, societal services, business ideas and companies. Computer and systems science is a multidisciplinary subject that covers all areas where computers and information technology (IT) are used by people, groups or organizations. The programmes and courses lead to a variety of professions and professional roles, such as the use of IT in businesses, computer security, systems development, programming, web design, database construction, IT for publishing, entertainment or education.

Computer science is the technical part of the subject. The education gives therefore knowledge of computers, programming, data communications and data processing. Systems science contains two closely related areas. One area is the interaction between IT, people and organizations. The second includes models and tools to analyze and design systems that include both technology and people.

För grundutbildningarna behövs inga tekniska förkunskaper om datorer, däremot bör man tycka om problemlösning, vara kreativ och ha lätt för att kommunicera i tal och skrift. Data- och systemvetenskap kan med fördel kombineras med andra ämnen, som t ex psykologi, pedagogik, lingvistik, juridik eller företagsekonomi. För en grundlig utbildning i data- och systemvetenskap väljer du något av våra kandidatprogram. Det finns flera olika program för att matcha olika behov och intressen. Har du förkunskaper inom ämnet kan du i stället välja ett mastersprogram som fördjupning.

For the basic courses no technical knowledge of the computers is needed. You should however like solving problems, being creative can easily communicate in speech and writing. Computer and systems science can also be combined with other subjects, such as psychology, linguistics, law or business economics. For a thorough training in computer and systems science, select one of our bachelor programmes. There are several different programmes to match different needs and interests. If you have previous knowledge of the subject, you can instead choose a master programme as a specialization

The Department of Computer and Systems, DSV, belongs to both Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology. This dual membership means you can choose from a rich selection courses with different focus and content.
