Goals of the Master’s Programme
The Master’s programme in Computer Science is designed to qualify graduates for a future career in
the area of information technology and equip them with the skills they
need to pursue academic work in this area. Building on the knowledge
students have acquired in the Bachelor’s programme, the Master’s
programme begins again with a basic studies phase before introducing
students to current research topics in the specialized studies phase.
To this end, the Master’s programme is closely tied up with the
Faculty’s research activities: seminars, projects and Master’s
theses are directly embedded in the current research work of the
various groups. The programme’s research colloquia and advanced
seminars enable students to gain an insight into current research in
the area of information technology.
The Master’s programme is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they will need to directly assume high-level positions requiring self-reliance and initiative in industry, management, science and research. Graduates should in particular be capable of subsequently performing leadership functions.
