Academic content

The M.Sc. programme in Computer Engineering at Aalborg University is comprised by four semesters where you work with gradually more complex subjects.

See the curriculum for the master’s programme in Computer Engineering. Here, you may find details on courses and projects as well as information on the programme’s legal basis, etc.

COMPULSORY FOR ALL NON-AAU BACHELORS

All bachelors enrolled in the programme who have not obtained their bachelor's degree from Aalborg University must take part in a course on problem based learning (PBL) as part of the 1st semester project. In case non-AAU bachelors get credit transfer for the 1st semester, they will be asked to take part in a course ensuring that they are trained in working according to the PBL-model. Read more about PBL here.
