Welcome to the Department of
Computer and Information Science
Professor Emeritus Erik Sandewall has had a pioneering role at Linköping university and our department, as the first professor in computer science in Sweden, and one of the founders of the department. The traces left behind and the road ahead are visualised in a statue that was raised to honour Erik Sandewall and the birth of computer science in Sweden.
The first group of students on the pioneering 5 year Computer Science and Software Engineering program have now finished their first academic year. The program has attracted a large number of applicants also for the second intake and several new courses with a focus on project-based learning are being developed.
The PhD dissertation by Marcus Mast addresses current shortcomings of autonomous service robots operating in domestic environments by considering the concept of a semi-autonomous robot that would be supported by human remote operators whenever the robot cannot handle a task autonomously.
