The Sino-Swedish Master’s Programme in Computer Science and Software Engineering is offered jointly by two world class institutions: Uppsala University (UU) and the National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in Taipei, Taiwan. You spend your first year in Uppsala, and the second year in Taipei and receive Master’s degrees from both universities. You will meet cutting edge researchers, and get a unique profile on your education. The programme is taught in English at both universities.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The programme gives you a unique opportunity to customise and specialise your education in combination with added expertise in a subject of your choice from our leading Asian partner, National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU).
The double subject competence along with the rewarding experience of studies on another continent gives you a truly international education. You also have the opportunity of graduating from two universities. By living and studying in two different cultures, and making close ties to cities and people in two different countries, leads to a personal and professional development that opens for an international labour market in both advanced industry and cutting-edge research.
- one programme, two degrees
- study on two continents
- customise and tailor your education to your own interests
Uppsala University is focused on the theoretical aspects of computer science while NTNU is particularly strong in applications. At NTNU you can also take courses on cultural aspects, such as language or intercultural relationships. You can create your own specialisations by combining courses individually.
You have a strong foundation in Computer Science and you might even have some practical experience working in the field after graduation but not so long so you have forgotten your broad theoretical base and study techniques. You are no stranger to mathematics and algorithms and are looking for an educational experience that will give you long term benefits and a skillset that lasts.
You are independent, self-going and extremely motivated and willing to take a lot of responsibility yourself to form your own educational experience, as well as your future career. You like to have many options and a freedom of choice when it comes to courses and topics. You like exploring different cultures and can easily adapt to new situations.
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about, but starting to work right after graduation is also something you are considering.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Computer Science as the main field of study at Uppsala University, and to a corresponding master degree at NTNU.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is:
- 90 credits in computer science, including programming, algorithms, data structures, computer architecture and operating systems; and
- 30 credits in mathematics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
Application Fee: SEK 900
Tuition fee, first semester: SEK 72500
