The Master of Science degree program in computer science is a two-year program is open to highly qualified foreign and German students with a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science or similar discipline.
The curriculum includes a selection of courses of the department for computer science (theory of algorithms, computer architecture, software engineering, foundations of artificial intelligence, image processing and computer graphics, databases and information systems), a wide variety of advanced courses offered in computer science, numerical analysis and application modules of other disciplines (eg, mathematics, microsystems technology, psychology, medicine, economics, physics, bioinformatics, cognitive science) offered. Students specialize in one of three areas:
* Cyber-Physical Systems
* Cognitive Technical Systems
* information Systems
Seminars, internships and an extensive master project complete the master's curriculum and promote the social and transferable skills of the students. The thesis covers a period of six months and their presentations, conducted in one of the working groups of the department for computer science.
The Master programme in Computer Science has a very flexible curriculum. There are few mandatory subjects and a lot of electives. At the same time the programme focusses on the foundations needed to develop cutting-edge applications.
First of all, students have to choose one or two key courses. Key courses are courses which introduce the students to the research areas represented at the Department of Computer Science and lay the basis for the specialisation area to be chosen. The following key courses are offered:
Image Processing and Computer Graphics
Databases and Information Systems
Foundations of Artificial Intelligence
After that, students can specialise in one of the following three specialisation areas:
Cognitive Technical Systems
Furthermore, students have the possibility to take two courses in Numerics.
In addition to the lectures and tutorials, students will complete two seminars, one project and one lab course.
We believe that it is important for computer science students to get a basic knowledge in a field in which they might work after graduation. Therefore, our students will gather a specific amount of credits in one of the following application areas:
In the last semester, students work on their masters thesis. They are expected to tackle an actual research question in close cooperation with a professor and his/her staff.
The Faculty of Engineering offers performance based part scholarships of 2400 Euro per year to the best 5 applicants (
