Computer Science, Master of Science (M.Sc.)

The University of Bayreuth’s Department of Computer Science offers two master’s programmes: “Computer Science” and “Applied Computer Science”. One slight difference is that the master’s programme Computer Science is bilingual, with lectures held in both German and English. The master’s programme Computer Science also takes an international approach, and practical project work plays an especially important role.

Research in View

The general aim of the master’s programme Computer Science is to provide a research-oriented programme of study.  On the basis of a broad understanding of the subject area with select areas of emphasis, creative and constructive abilities to produce and develop hardware and software systems are nurtured and honed. In addition, the students’ basic research and applied research skills in the field of computer science are developed and enhanced.

Career Prospects

Building on one’s initial career-qualifying degree, this master’s programme provides knowledge and competencies that enable graduates to pursue doctoral research – e.g. in a doctoral programme – or to engage in complex industrial or freelance activities in the areas of research, development, implementation, distribution, or maintenance. Typical areas of activity for computer scientists with a master’s degree are the development of new methods and systems for information processing (e.g. for manufacturing corporations, software companies, and research institutions), the introduction of automated information processing systems in companies or administrative departments, activities relating to operations, in addition to product maintenance and distribution in the computer industry. Computer scientists are also qualified to work at a range of academic institutes, including research and teaching activities at universities.
