With the research-oriented master‘s program in Computer Science International, you qualify for academic and industrial fields of computer science, for specialist activities in the public sector and for taking up doctoral studies at a national or international university. You deepen and expand your scientific knowledge and skills acquired in the bachelor‘s program. You will be prepared for assuming responsibility both in business and for the further development of science in research. Because computer scientists are urgently sought worldwide, all development opportunities are open to you.
You are interested in further qualifying and specializing in the field of computer science. In addition to having a bachelor's degree with good results and good knowledge of English, you have the skills to grasp complex tasks and apply your theoretical knowledge to solve them. A good level of abstraction is also helpful.
In the Master‘s program in Computer Science International, you expand and deepen your specialist knowledge in one of the two specializations „Information Systems“ or „Complex Systems“. In the first three semesters you will take the modules of the chosen specialization, selected modules from the other specialization and two non-technical modules. The non-technical elective primarily serves the acquisition or improvement of language skills in German and English as well as the acquisition of soft skills. The non-technical modules taken are intended to improve linguistic, non-technical and social skills as well as the students‘ self-competence. Possible subject areas include founding a company, time management, mentoring, management tasks, presentation techniques, social impact of computer science or didactics of computer science. In the third semester you will carry out project work. In the fourth semester, you create and defend your master‘s thesis.
Typical occupational fields are academic research and teaching, research, development, project planning, sales, commissioning and service departments of industrial companies in computer science or IT-related departments in companies in other industries, as well as research, development and consulting departments of research institutions, authorities and associations.
