and graduate programs in computer science and software engineering, as well
as a combined-degree undergraduate program in discrete mathematics and
computer science. The doctoral program within the School received its
ministerial accreditation in 2009. Quoting from the accreditation report on
PhD studies from 2009 (
The School of Computer Science is "the strongest in Iceland" (p. 6) and its
research is "on a similar level to that of cutting-edge institutions
