Programme Overview

Technology and digitization are increasingly entering our daily lives, society, business, economy and government. This is necessary to improve efficiency, remain functional and competitive and even safe. There is a general consensus that the use of technology in our daily lives and in our working practices whether in business or the professions will continue to increase and accelerate.

It is becoming apparent that the long-term practice of simply scaling up existing technologies has reached its limits and that the use of technology has to be updated and upgraded. This is also underlined by several recent developments. Most notably, the pandemic that requires communicating, remaining productive and adjusting business practices and policies while at the same time observing physical distancing.

Furthermore, the increasing realization that the deleterious impact of the economy on nature and climate makes it necessary to rethink and restructure business practices and consumption behaviours to reduce our environmental footprint. Information technology has a critical role to play in this respect and should be fully mobilized and aid the world’s efforts to move to a more sustainable economic model.

At the same time, huge amounts of data is piling up from various aspects of our business, professional, and social activities, necessitating an extensive infrastructure and software to accommodate, organize and analyse for use as an input in improved decision making.

Last but not least, the complexity of the goals of modern software systems necessitates agile processes for software development and operation. The increased complexity and prevalence of data and software in businesses and society often challenges social norms, creates ethical issues, and requires novel regulatory and legal frameworks.

Businesses need employees that have the necessary digital skills and technology tools for a modern working environment. Companies exclusively active in technology need employees for software development with better understanding of business needs and processes. To address these needs, we have developed this conversion master’s program in applied information technologies.
