The new master study course Computer Science International is offered in English and is therefore equally suitable for English-speaking international students and for German-speaking students with very good English skills who are aiming for an international career and who want to use and develop their English language skills intensively in addition to acquiring specialist knowledge.
Single modules, the module examination included, are offered in German. The module offer is designed in a way that – with a certain limitation of the options – the entire study course can be completely implemented in English.
The course can be started in winter or in summer term. It lasts 4 terms and is structured into compulsory, compulsory optional and elective modules.
In the compulsory part, 4 modules with a total scope of 54 credit points must be studied. 30 credit points are allocated to the final examination here that comprises of the final thesis (written master thesis) and the colloquium.
In the compulsory optional field, modules with a total scope of 54 credit points must be attended, too. These modules are structured into the compulsory optional fields “Specialization”, “Complement“ and “Individual Specialization”.
In the elective field „Non-technical subject“, two modules with a total scope of 12 credit points must be studied which primarily serve to acquire or improve the language skills of the students in German and English. These modules are not graded but assessed with “passed” or “not passed”.
120 credit points in total minimum are needed for passing the master examination.
