Computer Science (IT)

Are you interested in programming, software engineering, machine intelligence, data management or embedded systems ? You can deepen your skills in these areas by taking the Computer Science (IT) master's education at Aalborg University.

Computer Science (IT) is an education made for both Danish students and students from abroad (IT means “international track”). Every part of the programme is taught in English and should not be confused with the original Computer Science education which is only taught in Danish. It targets two types of students;

  1. Bachelors in Information Technology with Specialisation in Technology from Aalborg University
  2. International students with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering

Professional bachelors from UCN can be enrolled as long as that they have studied software development, including courses in syntax and semantics as well as discrete mathematics. In case you don’t know if your bachelor’s degree meets the requirements for the master's programme in Computer Science (IT), you can contact the programme secretary who can be of help to answer any questions you may have.


The master’s programme in Computer Science (IT) at Aalborg University offers four specialisations:

  • Information technology
  • Machine intelligence
  • Data engineering
  • Embedded software systems

Each specialisation has its own mandatory and elective courses. All specialisations, however, have one common mandatory course per semester (except for the 4th semester which is reserved for the master’s thesis);

  • 1st semester: Programming paradigms
  • 2nd semester: Software engineering
  • 3rd semester: Entrepreneurship

Please find more detailed information on the specialisations and courses under "Academic Content".
