Master in Information and Computer Sciences

The first semester is an orientation semester with a set of common courses for all students that establish a firm foundation for more specialised courses.

After the first semester the student chooses one of the available tracks or specialisations. In semesters 2 and 3 she/he chooses 4 courses from the selected track and two more courses from other tracks.

In the last semester (semester 4) the student writes a master thesis, usually in the context of a research project. A cooperation with industry is possible for the master thesis.

Below is a detailed list of all the courses offered in the MICS programme. Check also the profiles and the application procedure and feel free to contact the study director Ulrich Sorger or the secretary Cristina Marinho.
