Make your mark Locally & Globally
Computer Science at Karlstad University is well connected to the local ICT-industry both in research and education. It is also a multinational environment with connections all over the world, being part of research projects with international renowned companies and research institutes.
Through international research projects and the local cooperation group SNITS, our students offers great possibilities to meet and collaborate with their future employers.
The cooperation group SNITS (Cooperation between industry and IT student), offers a variety of activities to promote meetings between students and industry. It is a unique opportunity for students to build relations with the industry during their studies and to meet future employers. SNITS arranges study visits, guest lectures, lunch meetings, mentorship programmes, practical placement and degree projects for IT students at Karlstad University.
Our involvement in the many research projects is beneficial for our students. It gives them the opportunity to collaborate with national and international companies and research institutes at the fore front of technology.
For example, our researchers are involved in the Prismacloud (Privacy and Security Maintaining Services in the Cloud) project, with the aim of developing the next generation of cloud security technologies. Another interesting project is NEAT (A new, Evolutive API and Transport-layer Architecture for the Internet). In this project, our researchers are one part of a strong international consortium of top industry players and leading academic centres. The goal is to achieve a complete redesign of the way in which Internet applications interact with the network.
