Software is a business-critical resource for large parts of Swedish private enterprise and an important source of innovation and competitiveness. In cooperation with academia and industry we are establishing a national education alternative with the aim of guaranteeing the supply of software-related advanced skills and innovative power for Swedish private enterprise. The courses are given in cooperation with the Blekinge Institute of Technology, Chalmers, the University of Gothenburg, Mälardalen University and SICS.

The courses, all on master´s level, have been developed to suit those gainfully employed and who need to be able to combine work and studies. The courses have been produced in cooperation with the companies who need your skills, and teaching has been adapted for those who are gainfully employed. The courses combine conventional studies with distance, web-based learning and teaching at the participating companies. The courses are given within the framework of the PROMPT project (Professional Master’s Education in Software Development). PROMPT is a cooperation project between academia and industry with the aim of strengthening competitiveness in Swedish companies.

PROMPT’s curriculum is organised into four subject-related areas, and also a special area with project courses.

The PROMPT project is financed by the Knowledge Foundation’s programme “Expertkompetens för innovation” (Expert Skills for Innovation). Its aim is that cooperation between academia and industry will establish a national educational alternative with the aim of guaranteeing the supply of software-related advanced skills and innovative power for Swedish private enterprise.

PROMPT courses start in September and January. Online application is done at
Last application dates: April 15 and October 15, respectively (if there are places left, there will be a possibility to enroll later).
