The labor market and technological progress place high demands on the flexibility and ability to learn of computer scientists. We train highly qualified generalists who are equipped to deal with programming languages, software design methods, algorithms and technologies of the 21st century.
Computer science plays an important role in industry. In aircraft development, for example, more than 60% of value added is generated by software and communications technology; in cars, more than 90% of all innovations have to do with information technology. The modelling and optimization of business processes and the use of operational information systems are also inconceivable without information technology. Our graduates therefore have all doors open to them on the job market, and there is greater freedom of choice in the Master’s program than in the Bachelor’s program. The Master’s students should, on the one hand, deepen some basics of computer science and mathematics and, on the other hand, be given the opportunity to specialize in a field of computer science. In addition, you should acquire interdisciplinary knowledge and transdisciplinary skills in an area of application.
The course is modular. In addition to advanced core lectures in computer science and mathematics, students can specialize in current areas of computer science and gain insight into the research activities at the institute through internships, seminars and the final thesis. This profile is rounded off by an insight into the engineering applications of computer science.
The Master’s program in Computer Engineering consists of the following areas:
- Core area computer science
- computer science of complex systems
- applied mathematics
- applications of complex information systems
- general basics and the final thesis.
