Welcome New Masters Students!


This page provides important information for new masters students at the Department of Information Technology, starting this autumn 2023. Which meetings should you attend? How do you register for the program? Are there any welcome activities? Please study this page carefully and return to it often when planning your start of studies at the IT department, to ensure a smooth start of your studies.

Please note: The information below only applies to students enrolled in the Computer Science masters programme (or its specialisations Sino-Swedish), the Computational Science masters programme, the Embedded Systems masters programme, the Image Analysis and Machine Learning masters programme; or the Data Science masters programme (one of its specialisations Data Engineering or Machine Learning and Statistics). If you are a student in any other masters programme within the disciplinary domain of science and technology, you should check for more information at the Faculty of Science and Technology.


The 2023 autumn term will start with introductory meetings in the week of August 21. You are expected to attend the introductory meetings. In case you already know that your arrival in Uppsala will be delayed, you must get in touch with the coordinator of your master programme as soon as possible.
