Master programme Logic and Computation

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The aim of Computational Intelligence is to understand the principles that enable computer systems intelligent behaviour and to develop methods for creating agents, i.e. to transfer them to computers. To this end students will get an insight into the two approaches of the discipline: on one hand the analysis of biological processes in the brain and in the sense organs and on the other hand the modelling of human thinking by means of a symbolic logic or other formal methods. The degree programme, however, also contains core elements of classical theoretical informatics, such as algorithmics. Graduates will be enabled to resolve problems in an innovative way and e.g. apply methods for the development of formal hardware and software verification, cryptographical applications or the design of adaptive, learning systems.

Definition of the field of studies

Computational Intelligence deals with the basics, technology and applications of systematic and automated information processing. It provides methods and tools to handle complex systems in natural sciences, technology and other areas of human life and to this end employs both mathematical-formal and engineering methods.


The courses of the master’s programme are divided into three areas: basics (compulsory), advanced subject (which students can choose) as well as electives which students can choose freely and soft skills. Students can choose courses from the course catalogue in each of these areas. The master’s examination, which concludes the programme, consists of the submission of the certificates of the required courses and the marking of the master’s thesis. The content of the master’s thesis should be derived from the thematic area of the basic or advanced subjects. Students can suggest the topic. The scope of the thesis is such that students should be able to complete in within six months.
