Master by Research in Computer Engineering, 120 credits

The master by research programme in computer engineering targets those who are highly motivated to develop skills and knowledge for a future career in research and development. It is also an excellent preparation for future doctoral studies. During the training you will work with researchers with a specific research question in one of Mittuniversitetets largest research environments. You alternate research work with the academic studies needed to solve the task.

  • Start: Autumn 2022
  • Study form: Standard course of studies
  • Study pace: 100%
  • Campus: Sundsvall
  • Language: English
  • Code: MIU-F2893

Application deadline: 19 April 2022

As a student, you are part of a research group at the Sensible Things that Communicate (STC) research center, and participate in a research project where you will work both independently and together with others.

The education consists of theoretical and project-based courses and leads to an individual thesis work during the last semester - a master thesis.

Projects may include areas like wireless communication, 3D visualization, and machine learning.

The Internet of Things is a new and fast expanding area in Computer Science

Entry requirements

English course 6/English course B from Swedish Upper Secondary School (Gymnasium) or the equivalent.
