Description of Intelligent Systems

The aim of the master degree program Intelligent Systems is to convey knowledge and skills that enable students to analyse, design and develop complex cognitive systems. Students are guided increasingly to work independently following scientific principles and methodologies. The program is explicitly designed to convey practical skills and abilities.

The Faculty of Technology will not incur any expenses for German courses for international students.

Aims

The aim of the master degree program Intelligent Systems is to convey knowledge and skills that enable students to analyse, design and develop complex cognitive systems. Such cognitive systems are characterized by the fact that they can perceive their environment and react accordingly in an intelligent manner. Another significant feature of these intelligent systems is their ability to learn and to thereby adapt to complex and changing environments, requirements and users. Such systems are especially relevant in the areas of robotics, virtual agents, multimedia and web information systems. Students are guided increasingly to work independently following scientific principles and methodologies. The program is explicitly designed to convey practical skills and abilities.

Industry, service providers, and intelligent systems research create a large demand for computer science specialists with an interdisciplinary training as facilitated at Bielefeld University. Computer science specialists with a background in Intelligent Systems are needed urgently in all areas where robots, intelligent assistants, virtual agents (avatars) or intelligent information systems are being developed. Possible areas of employment are therefore e.g. in mechanical engineering, production, the motor car industry, the media as well as in the development of autonomous systems (robots, avatars, dialog systems, intelligent assistants), the computer game industry and scientific research.

Course Content

Structure

At the start of the program students complete/participate in the project-oriented ‘Praktikum Intelligente Systeme’. Here students have to work on one or more projects covering the areas of hardware, software engineering and development of new approaches and solutions in the area of intelligent systems.

Graduates can therefore be expected to be able to work on large projects and/or to be in charge of them as well as being able to find solutions to complex problems. Up-to-date knowledge regarding IT hardware will also be conveyed to facilitate access to industrial practice. Students will participate in an additional practical project worth 10 credit points in another module ‘Projekt’.

English Language Requirements

Requirements for Intelligent Systems

The “Intelligent Systems” Master’s degree programme is open to anyone with at least 40 credit points (according to the ECTS) in the fields of elementary informatics, and at least 30 credit points in subjects with a relevance to intelligent systems such as neurobiology; behavioural biology; neuroinformatics; artificial intelligence; language processing; signal processing; pattern recognition; robotics; and behavioural, developmental, or cognitive psychology.

There are also exceptions permitting the admission of particularly motivated students who do not fulfil these requirements.

Application is possible only for winter terms.

You may apply online from 1. June to 15. July. Application requires uploading the following documents as PDF or JPG files:

  • a certified copy of a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent certifying successful completion of a programme lasting at least 3 years;
  • transcripts of records of all previously achieved study results;
  • proficiency in English verified by a language test (TOEFL [iBT] with a minimum of 87 points or telc English with a minimum grade of B2), not compulsory with sufficient proficiency in German
  • optional: an application letter (up to 2 pages) describing your motivation and scientific interests (not compulsory, not part of the assessment)

This program has an English-speaking branch which guarantees that courses will be offered to students not speaking German. Commands in English are veryfied by a language test (TOEFL (iBT) with a minimum of 87 points or telc English with a minimum grade of B2).
