Start of studies for Programming and System Architecture

Welcome as a master's student in Programming and Systems Architecture!

We look forward to seeing you at the welcome meetings on Wednesday 12 August. The deadline for course registration is already the next day, Thursday 13 August. The lectures start on Monday 17 August.

Elective courses 2020

If you read the program’s web site, you will see that appears like you have to choose one of two specializations. This is no longer the case. When you choose courses for the semester (minimum of 30 credits) among the highly recommended and/or the recommended courses, you are free to choose from both specializations. The courses that are "highly recommended" are often more basic or general and less specialized than the courses that are categorized "recommended".

See list of highly recommended and/or recommended courses that you can take autumn 2020.

Research groups

As a master student in the Programming and System Architecture (PROSA) master program you will have access to supervisors from 9 of the 16 research groups in the Department of Informatics.  Later in the fall you will be invited to these research groups.

If you are mostly interested in networking and distributed systems you should visit these two groups:

If you are mostly interested in software, you may visit

If you are interested in more formal aspects of software or distributed systems you should visit

These research group have many interesting applications where you will get interesting advisors and supervision:
