Bachelor of Science in Software Technology

General

Program Description

Would you like to work with game development, IT systems for cars, or maybe within telecom? The future is exciting and full of possibilities!

IT is everywhere in our society – in homes, healthcare, and industry. This program focuses mainly on the software in IT systems, which can be found in everything from mobile phones and games to cars and industrial robots. As a computer scientist, you will get a solid knowledge of programming and the art of designing and developing IT systems.

Computers are controlled by programs. These programs can be very small, or huge systems with millions of lines of program code. The development of larger programs requires well-thought-out approaches and a good organization. How to organize, design and develop large computer systems are some of the things that you learn in software technology, which is an area of the subject of computer science. You will also acquire knowledge of other fields of computer science such as computer networks, databases, and operating systems.

Elective courses within the program let you create your own educational profile, for example in computer graphics/visualization.
