Programme syllabus Degree Programme in Computer Science and Engineering Civilingenjörsutbildning i datateknik credits Valid for students admitted to the education from Autumn 13 (HT - Autumn term; VT - Spring term). Programme objectives This programme syllabus, established by the CSC Undergraduate education advisory group and then decided by the CSC dean is valid for students starting the programme during the study year 2013/14. Which courses that belong a study year is decided in the fall the year before. Please see Study year 1 etc. or the appendices. Changes may occur in the contents of the programme and in the KTH regulations, please see Computer Science and Engineering is the most influential factor on society and will remain so during the foreseeable future. An essential usage of Computer Science and Engineering is the efficiency of resource usage and communication in society for a sustainable development. The Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering programme at KTH aims to give the student the prerequisites and abilities to participate in and lead work with appraisal, development and influence of new Computer Science and Engineering technologies. Besides the goals stated in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance the following goals apply.link to goals stated in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance: Knowledge and understanding The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should: have fundamental knowledge within Computer Science and Engineering have profound knowledge in mathematics, i.e. have the ability to explain and carry out mathematical reasoning and define and analyse mathematical models. have knowledge in human and natural sciences, especially such knowledge which has consequences for design of computerized systems. have knowledge about industrial entrepreneurship and relevant legislation. Skills and abilities The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should: have prerequisites and abilities to participate in and develop the practices which are applied in industry, administration, and academic research. have the ability to independently define and solve computer-related construction problems. have the prerequisites for successful work in international and multidisciplinary project groups which consist of people from both technical and non-technical backgrounds. This includes the ability to orally, and in writing, present as well as argue in Swedish and English. Programme syllabus for Degree Programme in Computer Science and Engineering batch Autumn 13. Page 1 of 6 Ability to judgements and adopt a standpoint The programme has the goal that a Master of Computer Science and Engineering should: Independently analyse and adopt a standpoint on economical, societal, environment-related and ethical consequences of computer science applications, and to design systems concerning this. Through self-development, retain one s professional abilities during a professional career. Follow and promote the discussion concerning technology in society. Extent and content of the programme The Master of Computer Science and Engineering is composed of 300 ECTS credits, which, at normal study rate, corresponds to 5 years of full-time study (10 semesters). The first three years (180 ECTS credits) are on the first level. The first three years (180 ECTS credits) are on the first level. The final two years (120 ECTS credits) are mainly on the second level. Master's programmes The last two years the student takes a master's programme of his/her choice. The master's programmes consist of courses mainly in the second level. The education leads to a master's degree as well as a civilingenjör degree. Each year a list of master's programmes that the students can choose from is presented. For some master's programmes there are restrictions as to choice of tracks or eligible courses. Language of instruction The language of instruction, during the first three years of the programme is mostly Swedish; although English literature will be used. The concluding two years are mostly in English. For each course the language of instruction is found in the and programme directory on the KTH student web site. Eligibility and selection In order to be accepted to the Master of Computer Science and Engineering programme the basic eligibility requirements as well as the following requirements must be met: Mathematics E, Physics B, Chemistry A (according to the swedish school system). All with at least a grade of Godkänd (Passed). For eligibility requirements and selection, see the KTH admission policy Implementation of the education Structure of the education This programme syllabus, established by the CSC Undergraduate education advisory group and then decided by the CSC dean is valid for students starting the programme during the study year 2013/14. Which courses that belong a study year is decided in the fall the year before. Please see Study year 1 etc. or the appendices. Changes may occur in the contents of the programme and in the KTH regulations, please see The syllabus for the Master of Computer Science and Engineering programme consists of compulsory first level courses during study years 1 3 concluded by a first level degree project. courses within the master's programme that the student has chosen for study years 4 5, concluded by a second level degree project. elective first and second level courses giving the education the profile desired by the student. International profile Programme syllabus for Degree Programme in Computer Science and Engineering batch Autumn 13. Page 2 of 6 The international profile starts in study year 2 and includes courses in the profile language and a possibility to spend one or two semesters at one of the KTH partner universities using the language of the profile. Currently the following profile languages are offered: Japanese, Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. Specialization in language engineering The specialisation in Language Engineering begins in the fall semester in study year 2 with courses in linguistics taken at Stockholm University. These courses replace som of the compulsory courses. (See appendix 2) Bachelor's degree The programme is designed in such as manner that the student after three years of studies can obtain a bachelor's degree. The student can then continue his/her studies on the Computer science and engineering programme, continue his/her studies in another programme at KTH or another University in Sweden or abroad or start his/her work career. Academic year The KTH academic year is 40 weeks, divided into four periods. For details about the structure of the academic year see s The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in appendix 1. The course goals, prerequisites, contents and examination requirements are found in the course syllabus in the and programme directory on the KTH student web. The programme consists of compulsory, conditionally elective and elective courses. The compulsory courses are defined in course lists for each study year. Elective courses can be chosen from KTH s course selection for Master of Science in Engineering programmes. s from other universities can be recognized for credit, if the degree requirements are fulfiled. For elective courses, the following restrictions apply: Elective courses can not be taken in study year 1 Only in exceptional cases can elective courses be taken in study year 2 The number of credits that can be chosen per semester can be limited. Elective courses may not overlap a course already taken to a considerable extent. Higher education preparation courses may not be counted as elective course. s on lower levels within a subject than the programme courses may not count as elective courses. Grading system s in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances. Since the grading systems differ very much between different countries, the grades are not translated from exchange studies abroad. Conditions for participation in the programme Semester enrollment At the start of each semester the student is required to make a study enrollment for the next semester at My pages. Programme syllabus for Degree Programme in Computer Science and Engineering batch Autumn 13. Page 3 of 6 The study enrollment is required for taking new courses and for study results to be registered. Selection of courses Admission to compulsory courses during study yerars 1 2 is currently automatic. Students choosing among alternative compulsory courses have to submit a special form. From study year 3 and on the student is responsible for applying to all courses he/she wishes to take. This also applies to compulsory courses.
