To complete the program until the
master's degree requires motivation and targeted work effort. To achieve the learning outcomes for the study program, students must expect to spend more than 40 hours a week in the study from the study start, including lectures, group hours, laboratory work and self-taught self-study.
The program offers a varied teaching programme while most courses are intensive and project oriented. In lectures, theory and academic theme are examined. In the group work, students are expected to be active in discussions of issues in the subject matter. Students work in laboratories where compulsory assignments are solved to acquire practical skills in designing, building and maintaining computer systems, either individually or in teams with other students.
In addition to collaborating with other informatics students, the students will also work with people who have knowledge in other areas. In order to train this, it is important that the student takes an active role, is present and contributes to the learning environment, both in organized teaching and otherwise during the weeks where the students cooperate and largely learn from each other.
All academic staff who teach the study programme are active researchers in various research projects. The courses are based on relevant research and are related to the departments research activity. As a student, you will be able to engage in projects in the research laboratories along the way. Special curriculum and master theses are often part of a larger project context, in a working community in a research group. In the work on these assignments, individual guidance is provided from the department's academic staff.
