Computer Science

The Computer Science master's degree programme is a theory-based and practice-oriented postgraduate degree programme. When building upon the subject knowledge already gained, the programme primarily has a scientific focus, but does not neglect the application-based elements.

Our graduates gain employment in the fields of practical and applied computer science and in particular the planning and programming of system-based and application-oriented software and the deployment of distributed software systems within computer networks. They are employed by companies from all industries, as well as by public bodies. It is not just IT departments that offer job opportunities; they can also be found in user areas, software companies, and consulting companies. Graduates of the Computer Science master’s degree programme are particularly well-suited to management roles and especially demanding technical tasks that require the application of scientific methods, together with a high degree of abstraction, and excellent analytical skills.
