Online course overview
The Master’s degree in Computer Science consists of four semesters. In the first semester, you’ll start with software engineering and deepen your knowledge of mathematical and statistical principles. You’ll also acquire skills in the fields of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence in your very first year of study.
Going forward, in the second semester you’ll systematically deal with the design, evaluation, and use of algorithms. Also in the second semester, you’ll begin to explore the topics of Cyber Security and Data Protection.
In the third semester, your focus will be on two compulsory elective modules. You will also examine the influence of your work as a computer scientist on society, discuss the latest issues in IT, and analyse networked systems.
At the end of your studies, your Master’s thesis and an oral examination (worth 30 ECTS) will provide you with an opportunity to independently apply the knowledge you have acquired to a specific problem using scientific methods, and to present and defend the results.
