About Computer Engineering at Aarhus University

Students in the MSc in Computer Engineering can specialise in relevant fields of study connected with system and instrument development involving software, hardware, and communication technology. Depending on your chosen specialisation, upon completion of the degree you will be awarded the title of either Master of Science in Engineering (Computer Engineering) or Master of Science and Technology (Computer Engineering). Your teachers will be researchers from the Department of Engineering and Department of Computer Science, as well as lecturers and development engineers at the Aarhus University School of Engineering. The degree programme thus benefits from R&D projects carried out in all three environments.

CHOOSE YOUR STUDY PACKAGE

The first year of the MSc consists of two basic study packages and two specialised study packages. All students take the basic study packages, but you can choose your own specialised study packages from the options listed on page 2. Each package is worth 15 ECTS credits. The second year consists of an elective programme and a thesis.

The MSc programme offers specialised study packages in the following fields: embedded systems, wireless networks, distributed systems decision, signal processing, and software engineering.

TEACHING

At Aarhus University, you will be in close contact with lecturers and researchers in a way that is rarely experienced at other universities. The academic staff are readily accessible if you need clarification of the course material. Part of the teaching is in the form of lectures that introduce new angles on the course material, and theoretical and practical exercises take place in small groups in which issues are studied in depth.

STUDENT LIFE

At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students. So you will have ample opportunity to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students.

CAREERS

The MSc in Computer Engineering prepares students for the national and international job market. Our graduates have found jobs across a range of fields and institutions. There is considerable demand for IT graduates in areas such as instrument development engineering. Many graduates are working as software architects or developers of large instruments and systems, or have become software developers or project managers for large IT systems.

Companies demand graduates with considerable theoretical depth and analytical working methods. You learn to combine the theoretically strong knowledge of a computer scientist with the more practically oriented and innovative approach of an engineer, so that you are well equipped to meet the needs of the job market.

What students think about Aarhus University

    Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering

    Testimonial from Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It's very easy to work in English in Denmark. Everyone understands it and can talk in English. I also think that the culture is very interesting. Quite unique in fact. There’s a lot of focus on the potential of the individual, and there’s a lot of openness. Denmark has a very flat hierarchy, and that’s rare. I've never experienced this flat hierarchy before, so actually it was something of a culture shock. And it permeates everything – even on the programme. It's very positive, it's not like the lecturer just arrives, teaches, and goes. There’s interaction, and you’re encouraged to discuss and have an opinion. The professors are genuinely interested in hearing your own opinion about things; even the simplest questions are given respect and are discussed until every aspect is clear to us.”

    Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering

    Testimonial from Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It was weird to live here at first. You had to get used to so many new things. But there were a lot of social events, especially during the first week, and everything was organised for us. I met a lot of Danish and international students, and even some from my own country. It was great, and it helped in the beginning, when you feel that you’re completely alone with so many things. I like Aarhus. It's a big city, but it’s also a small town. It’s exactly the right size, I think, to feel at home and comfortable and yet to have all the opportunities you need and want. And I really like the fact that the university is right in the middle of the city."

    Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science

    Testimonial from Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science, student at Aarhus University

    "What really makes Aarhus University unique is the study environment. The lecturers are very open to discuss their subjects during lectures, but they are also available at other times - sometimes you can discuss with them during the local Friday Bar. Most of the programmes facilitate and foster teamwork, which is so much more fun and closer to the actual working environments. Last, but not least important, you have 24/7 access to facilities, including libraries, study rooms, etc., if you want to go the extra mile."
