Project in Computer Science

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

The project gives practice in solving a research assignment within the computer science area.

Learning outcome

After having completed this course the student shall have detailed knowledge of the topic covered by the project, and be able to perform thorough research and development work within the specific topic.


The project gives practice in solving a research assignment within the computer science area. The project is intended as a pre-project for the master thesis. Project tasks are announced by the Department before the semester starts; projects can also be proposed by the student or a company, but approval is strict. It is not required that the student continues the work in a master thesis project, but such an opportunity is given in some cases. That is, the student is free to choose another master project. The Department assigns projects based on grades and the students ability to solve the selected task. If the student lacks the necessary prerequisites, one may risk not being assigned a project.
Every project must have a responsible Professor and a supervisor. For Department projects, the supervisor and responsible Professor may be the same person.
