Welcome to the Department of
Computer and Information Science
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.
The annual prize for the best Master and Bachelor thesis defended in 2013 was awarded by Computer Society during a ceremony where the DataSaab society also awarded stipendia to high school students and teachers. Three theses by Simon Andersson (IDA), Martin Danelljan (ISY), and Lina Lagerberg jointly with Tor Skude (IDA) won this year's prize in a tight competition among ten students nominated for excellent theses.
