This program is research-oriented and consecutive and is based on a research-oriented Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. It can also be attended by graduates from similar bachelor programs, such as Computer and Systems Engineering, Mathematics or Information Systems Engineering
The master program Computer Science aims at a research-oiented specialisation of the professional and methodological comepetence acquired in a university degree in a major subject in computer science.
This also includes the enlargement of vocationally competences and the education in the fundamentals of computer science on a high level. As a result, the graduates are able to access complex problems in the field of computer science independently and solve them with scientific methods. Beyond that, team skills, social competence and communication skills are developed during the studies in large measure.
The master program Computer Science is both interdisciplinary and integrative and characterized by an intensive research orientation.
Fundamental courses (e.g. complex information technology systems, transactional information systems, networkalgorithms, efficient algorithms)
Optional courses from the chosen specialisation (see specialisation and detailed overview)
Advanced mathematics for computer scientists (e.g. discrete mathematics, information and coding theory, optimization, numerical analysis, stochastic models)
Minor subject (optional subjects from the academic master program)
Non-technical minor subject (optional subjects from the academic master program)
