Curriculum of the Master's Program Computer Science



In the first semester, the module "Theoretical and methodological foundations of computer science", which is specific for each major, is compulsory. Core and extended modules can be chosen from the respective catalogs. The core modules of the major serve to get a deeper understanding and knowledge in the field of the major. The extended modules are courses to support the core modules with boarder knowledge. In the breadth modules are complemented by a broad education in computer science.  All modules of the computer science faculty except the modules of the respective major can be selected as breadth modules. The seminar which is graded is part of the second semester and imparts you the knowledge and techniques to present results in written or oral form. The third semester offers great flexibility. For example, it is possible to stay abroad. Alternatively, different modules can be selected instead, for example:

  • Research project (project 9 ECTS + Seminar 3 ETCS) = 12 ETCS
  • Minor with 2 * 6 ECTS
  • Breadth module with 6 ETCS
  • Lab course with 6 ECTS

The fourth semester is reserved for the Master Thesis.
