Computer Science and Informatics

CSI – a Collaborative Academic Environment

Computers and information systems (IT) are today an integral part of all aspects of life. They are used to increase productivity in industry and healthcare, to enhance pedagogy and to provide business intelligence. We also use IT for home automation, social networking, media consumption, transportation and just about anything. Software is embedded everywhere, and the products around us are becoming increasingly interconnected. The challenges we computer scientists face are sometimes interdisciplinary, but due to the integral nature of the systems, more often multidisciplinary.

The education and research at our department is scientifically anchored in Computer Science and Informatics, but we do acknowledge and cultivate the applied and multidisciplinary dimension. We therefore encourage collaboration with industry, public sector, and other academic disciplines. These partnerships enable us as an internationally connected and globally oriented department to stay relevant in our region and to continuously contribute to both science and practice.

We deliver capable students

Our degree programmes equip our students with both knowledge and skills for contemporary and future challenges in industry and the public sector, as well as for a future academic career. In our programmes, we collaborate closely and co-produce with strategic external partners. Platforms for collaboration include research projects, thesis projects, internships, guest lecturers, industry advisory boards and via internationalisation for all our programmes.

We offer the following degree programmes

Bachelor programmes

Engineering programmes

Master programme

We participate in two collaborative research schools

We do research that matters

Our research is executed in collaboration and in co-production with external partners. The research at JTH is mainly conducted in the research environment SPARK where we have an active role. The profile of SPARK is Knowledge Intensive Product Realization which is divided into five thematic areas (TA 1-5). TA5, Digitalization for Smart Products and Services, has a direct relation both to our degree programmes and to the research that we do. The other thematic areas (TA1-4) are also important as application domains for both education and research.

At CSI, we do research in several areas where we have the competence and a documented track record both in practice and the academic community.
