Knowledge and competences for working in academic and industry professional fields are taught in the master study course computer science. The students select modules from the key areas "Information Systems" and "Complex Systems" and choose one of the key areas as their specialization.
An examplary master study procedure comprises of 4 terms. Individual deviations are possible and common.
Term 1 -3
- The students select from the key subject area offer they intend to specialize in modules with an overall extent of 24 credit points.
Provision of overview knowledge on other topics:
- The students select modules with a content of 12 credit points out of offers from the other key area and two other modules that have not already been chosen (12 credit points).
- The students attend two non-technical elective modules from the University of Rostock’s total offer (12 credit points).
The students work with research and developments in computer science (presentation and module paper) and implement a project work (6 credit points each).
Examination performance and graduation
- Most of the modules are completed with an marked examination.
- After successfully completing a module, the student gets credit points (ECTS). These shall display the workload related to the module.
- For completing the master studies successfully, students have to achieve 120 credit points minimum.
A detailed description of the master study course Computer Science (examination and study regulations included) are provided here.
Perspectives after graduation
- The M.Sc. Computer Science qualifies for managing engineering works and offers various job perspectives, for instance related to software development and in the IT service sector.
- The M.Sc. Computer Science enables a subsequent dissertation.
A more autonomous scientific work than those of computer science bachelor graduates is expected from master graduates. They autonomously implement development and research work in industry or research institutions and take over management tasks.
