Master by Research in Computer Engineering, 120 credits

Save favourite

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.

As a student, you are part of a research group at the Sensible Things that Communicate (STC) research center, and participate with researchers 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.
