Computer Science / Informatik Degree: Master
with the Majors "Machine Intelligence" and "Distributed Systems"
Computer Science is a young science at the interface between mathematics and the engineering and natural sciences. It has an interdisciplinary character and deals with the possibilities of processing, storing, transmitting, displaying and using information from a scientific and technical perspective. Computer science develops information and communication technologies for science, business and society, which increasingly permeate our everyday lives and change our lives. Innovative computer science solutions are seen as the key to further technical progress. Computer Science faces a variety of challenges and offers countless opportunities to analyze complex problems, develop clever technical solutions, and thus help shape the world responsibly and creatively.
The Master of Science degree is a postgraduate degree that requires a successfully completed Bachelor’s program. The program awards 90 ECTS credits in total. The Master’s degree program Computer Science is a so called mono-course consisting of only one core subject. Supervised practical work over the course of one year constitutes the core of the studies. One ECTS credit point roughly equals 30 hours of studying.
