The aim of the master program Research in Computer & Systems Engineering is to educate students qualified for academical and industrial research in these fields. This requires profound knowledge in computer science, automation, and further engineering disciplines as application domain. Therefore, students are trained both to obtain methodical competences as well as abilities for independent research work. The Master of Science is a non-consecutive, research-oriented program and is based on a bachelor's degree in computer science, technical computer science, computer engineering, and optionally other professional experiences. Due to the strong research orientation of the program and the goal of preparing students for a research career in international labs and companies the program is offered in english only.
