Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) is Stockholm University’s largest department, with 178 employees, nearly 5,400 students, and turnover of over SEK 243 million in 2015. With a close relationship to society and one of the world´s greatest ICT clusters, well-established infrastructure and a stable financial base, DSV is perfectly positioned to excel in both Swedish and international education and research.
Interdisciplinary education and research
The academic activities at DSV span a wide variety of fields, especially interdisciplinary fields, and are focused on developing and adapting the use of IT to the needs of people, organizations and society. The Department has four main focus areas: Design for Learning, e-Government, ICT for Development and Arts in Technology in Society. DSV also operates at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) under the School of Information and Communication Technology (KTH Kista).
Part of a world-leading ICT cluster
DSV is located in Stockholm, right in the middle of one of the world’s leading ICT clusters, Kista Science City, where there are more companies and research institutes packed into a small area than anywhere else in Sweden. This provides DSV with unique opportunities to link its academic activities to industry and organizations, and together we are able to create new business ideas, community services, and cultural and creative industries with the support of IT.
DSV is a part of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Stockholm University. For more information about the Faculty of Social Sciences, click on the link below.
