Our Master Courses of Study

 

The Master courses of study offered by the Computer Science Department are partly realized in cooperation with other universities and research institutes.

 

Computer Science M.Sc.

Standard Period of Studies: 4 semesters

The Master’s program aims to deepen existing expertise, abilities and methods in computer science with the goal of leading to higher qualifications and independence in this field.

Degree Content

The Master’s in computer science involves areas like theoretical computer science, applied computer science, software and communication, data and information management and the applied subject. Within the areas there is a wide range of electives to choose from. To a great extent in the Master’s program there is the possibility for students to familiarize themselves with a special area of computer science usually by writing a paper.

Software Systems Engineering M.Sc.

Standard Period of Studies: 4 semesters

This program focuses on the design and implementation of complex software systems, including their embedding in technical and socio-technical systems. The program is designed to take full advantage of the scope and environment offered at RWTH Aachen University as one of the leading technological universities in Europe. The program is taught in English.

Degree Content

Students will gain knowledge of theoretical, practical, and applied aspects of computer science, which will allow them to adapt quickly to the constant changes in this fast-paced field. In addition, the students will gain the ability to understand the necessary depth and interdisciplinary skills by taking courses in several areas.

Data Science M.Sc.

Standard Period of Studies: 4 semesters

Data Science is a hot topic, which gains in importance as a cross-sectional topic almost everywhere including natural sciences, engineering, and medical science. Data Science deals with the extraction of knowledge and usable information from data. The available data sets are often very large, heterogeneous, and partially unreliable.

Degree Content

The essential constituents of data science are data analysis and systems engineering. Therefore, this course of study is going to convey modern methods of data analysis as well as algorithms and techniques for the development of information systems. Data Science is an interdisciplinary field with its roots in computer science, mathematics, and statistics and it has a strong link to various application areas.

Technical Communication M.Sc.

Standard Period of Studies: 4 semesters

Technical Communication is an interdisciplinary course of study combining liberal arts with an engineering education and training. This course of study prepares transfer specialists who can present complex technical facts clearly, and appropriate for the target group and media. Housed at a technology university, this course of study bridges the gap between the liberal arts and technological/scientific ways of thinking. In Germany, the Technical Communication course of study is unique in its focus and structure. It is strongly characterized by the technology orientation of the university and the integration of the Faculty of Philosophy in this context.

Degree Content

The course includes a high percentage of engineering classes, combined with a focus on written communication and electronic media. Students take two equally weighted subjects: Communication Studies and Fundamentals of Computer Science. The Computer Science Department offers service teaching for the subject Fundamentals of Computer Science.
