About

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.

Programme Structure

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:

  • Algorithm Theory (always in English)
  • Image Processing and Computer Graphics (always in English)
  • Databases and Information Systems (always in German)
  • Software Engineering (summer term 2015 in German, summer term 2016 in English)
  • Foundations of Artificial Intelligence (summer term 2015 in English, summter term 2016 in German)
  • Computer Architecture (summer term 2015 in German, summer term 2016 in English)

After that, students can specialise in one of the following three specialisation areas:

  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Information Systems
  • Cognitive Technical Systems

Academic Requirements

The academic and language requirements for the MSc. Computer Science programme are:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or Informatics with a result of at least 80% or 3.0 out of 4
  • IELTS test

Our Master's programme aims at the development of both practical and theoretical skills. Mathematical analyses and proofs play an important part in the curriculum. Also, true mastery of the practical sides of computer science requires mastery of its theoretical foundations. Therefore a profound basic knowledge in theoretical computer science (formal languages, automata theory etc.) is an important pre-requisite for admission.
