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.

In semesters 2 and 3, profiles define compulsory and recommended courses. Depending on the number of selected profiles she/he chooses further courses from the respective semester catalogue below. In each semester at least 30 ECTS have to be covered.

In the 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.
