This programme focuses mainly on the software in IT systems, which can be found in everything from mobile phones and games to cars and industrial robots. As a computer scientist, you will get solid knowledge of programming and the art of designing and developing IT systems.

Computers are controlled by programs. These programs can be very small, or huge systems with millions of lines of program code. The development of larger programs requires well thought-out approaches and a good organization.
