Master programme Computer Science (E)

Content and focus of the degree programme:

Computer Sciences closely link theory and practice but are in principle strongly application-oriented. Graduates of this master’s programme will be experts in their discipline and they will be able to solve complex problems autonomously and with the use of scientific methods. Five major subjects or specialisations are available: Computational Engineering, Intelligent Information Systems, Networks and security, Pervasive computing, Software engineering. Students have to study compulsory courses in the major subject. Moreover, they have to choose a minor, in which students can study subjects of other majors and elective courses. The medium of instruction is English.

Definition of the field of studies

Computer Science deals with the basics, technology and applications of systematic and automated information processing. It provides methods and tools for controlling complex systems in natural sciences, technology and other areas of human life and applies both mathematical and formal methods as well as engineering methods.


To improve the students' international qualification all courses are taught in English. Moreover it is possible to apply for financial support for study periods abroad. After writing a master’s thesis students have to pass a master's examination, which is an examination before an examination panel. In this examination knowledge in the major and minor subject is tested and the students have to defend their master’s thesis to the panel.
