About Software Engineering at Mälardalen University

Software is playing an increasingly important role, in our daily life as well as in industry and in society at large, and thus software engineering has become a crucial area of computer science. Here you learn methods to effectively develop and maintain complex software that meets stringent quality, and e.g. safety requirements.

During the programme you acquire knowledge and a deeper insight into software engineering in both industry and research. You meet industrial guest lecturers, get an insight into how a modern hi-tech company works and have the opportunity to do your degree project in collaboration with one of our industry partners, such as ABB, Bombardier Transportation and Volvo Construction Equipment.

As a student in this programme, you also work closely with our researchers and doctoral students. Most of the courses in the programme are led by active researchers at MDH in primarily industrial software engineering, model-based development, software verification and development of reliable systems. In addition, about half of the degree projects are done within research projects.

There are also many opportunities to study parts of the programme abroad, either as an exchange student for one or two semesters or by studying the second year at one of our partner universities in Europe, thereby taking a double degree.
