Master Computer Science
The departmental advisor has set up a mailing list through which Master's and Bachelor's students in computer science are informed of important information, including dates and events, changes to examination regulations, and more. We highly recommend that all computer science students sign up on the mailing list.
Master introduction event - Slides
Here you can find the slides to the introduction event of winter semester 2019/20 for Master students of Computer Science, which took place in the AM (Großer Hörsaal) in the Audimax building on Monday, September 30th, 2019, at 10:00am.
The typical length of study for the Master's course of study is four semesters. The program is made up of modules. Students are required to complete a total of 120 credits. The core of the program is an elective component encompassing 90 credits. It offers students a flexible opportunity to shape their studies. To ensure a higher degree of interdisciplinary skills, 18 of the 90 credits are in an elective subject of application, such as business administration, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or mathematics. The elective compenent is supplemented with a six-month Master's thesis totaling 30 credits. In their thesis students demonstrate that they can independently address and investigate a problem in computer science using scientific methods.
The elective courses include lectures, seminars, a practial, and a focus colloquium. The courses offered cover a broad spectrum of subjects includng algorithms and complexity; automata and logic; software engineering, modelling, and verification; computer graphics; multimedia and human-machine interaction; computer-aided learning; databases and data exploration; imbedded systems; high performance computing; communication systems; artificial intelligence; language processing; and pattern recognition.
Important Information on External Theses
We would like to emphasize in the light of current events that externally advertised theses without an issuing supervisor from the Department of Computer Science cannot be accepted!
More information on this topic can be found in Organizational Information in the section “Bachelor's Thesis and Colloquium”. The information on external theses apply to Master's Theses as well.
