MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAMME, 2 YEARS, Gjøvik

Applied Computer Science

– Programme components

The programme has several specialisations:

  • Web
  • Mobile
  • Games
  • Colour and image processing
  • Media processing

The first year of the study program will give the students a basic understanding of - and skills in the use of - technologies for media computing and for developing web applications, mobile applications, and games. Some of these basic courses are compulsory for all students.The students will also gain a basic understanding of digital innovation and entrepreneurship.

The third semester of the study will give the students the opportunity to specialize in a relevant area of their choice. They will also develop their thesis proposal and will conduct a small research oriented project.

The learning activities in the third and the fourth semesters are to a large degree research based. The students will have the opportunity work closely with the research groups within the Media Technology Lab.

The last semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.
