Introduction to the programme

Software development and construction of IT systems

Computer Science is a subject which you will study as a part of your bachelor programme at Roskilde University.

The bachelor subject Computer Science is about software development and the design of IT systems. You will learn to plan, analyse, implement, test and document a programming assignment. You will not only become a programmer, but you will also learn to reflect on and participate in a development project from start to finish: from planning and coding to testing in practice and evaluation.

The subject Computer Science will equip you with a theoretical and methodological insight into the core aspects of computer science, and you will learn to incorporate theory and method into your practical work. You will acquire the basic, practical skills necessary for programming, structuring information and developing elegant solutions. You will learn how to progress from product description to action plan, how a problem should be approached to find the appropriate solution, and how to test the completed IT system.

All teaching and project writing is conducted in English.

Your everyday study life

Computer Science has a closely connected study environment. You can expect to go through the study together with the students starting the education at the same time as you, but you will also meet new people at elective courses and through social activities across the study years.

All teaching in Computer Science is carried out by a regular staff of teachers and takes place in the same building. The department's lecturers and professors have offices close to your classrooms and we have an "open door" policy that makes it easy to get in touch with your teachers and researchers - whether it's about a challenging academic problem or for a chat. During your education you will become part of the daily life of the department.

From bachelor to master

A bachelor's degree from Roskilde University will provide access to study a master's programme. Depending on which subject(s) you choose as a part of your bachelor's programme, your degree will provide access to one or more of Roskilde University's master's programmes.
