The Master's course of studies encompasses 120 ECTS credit points (C). These 120 C are divided among the following fields – Core Curriculum (30 C), Professionalisation (60 C), Master's thesis (30 C).
The Master's course of studies does not include any mandatory study modules. Instead, students arrange with their mentor individually tailored, goal-oriented course schedules within the scope of the study and examination regulations. The individual course schedules are approved by the Dean of Studies.
In the Core Curriculum, students acquire deeper knowledge of systems-oriented computer science in order to develop the professional skills to apply and expand the specialised methods of the discipline.
In terms of professionalisation, students have the opportunity to choose between Systems-Oriented Concentration and Application-Oriented Concentration tailored to their individual and professional inclinations, as well as professional ambitions, and to acquire core job-specific and interdisciplinary skills.
While 48 C are selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialisation in the Application-Oriented Concentration, 30 C are selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialisation and 18 C may be selected from the Computer Science Core in the Systems-Oriented Concentration.
Professionalisation includes an additional 12 C key qualifications and competences.
