Programme components

The programme offers several specialisations:

  • web
  • mobile
  • games
  • colour science and imaging technology
  • visual computing 

The first year of the study program will give you a basic understanding of - and skills in the use of - technologies for colour and visual computing and for developing web and mobile applications, as well as games. Some of the basic courses are compulsory.

At the beginning of the second year you will be given the opportunity to specialize in areas of your interest. You will also develop a thesis proposal and will conduct a small research oriented project.

The learning activities in the second year are to a large degree research-based, giving you the opportunity to work closely with researchers and experts in the field.

The second half of the final year is devoted to the master’s thesis.



The tables below are valid for the 2019/2020 academic year. There may be changes to the curricula in subsequent years.
