The Master's Degree Programme in Computer Science is devised as an application-focused course. Its aim is to provide its students with advanced and specialist knowledge of computer science and related areas on a scientific foundation. On the basis of broad subject knowledge and comprehensive methodological skills, students acquire and train analytical and creative aptitude for developing problem-solving concepts as well as for building and further developing hardware and software systems. Graduates should be equipped to apply scientific methods and findings to complex issues within computer science, both in practice and in application-oriented research and development.
Computer science deals with the incorporation of information systems in complex environments in which man and technology, companies and society interact with all manner of economical, ecological and ethical aspects. One educational aim of the Master’s degree programme is networked and interdisciplinary application know-how, including so-called soft skills, in addition to purely academic knowledge. At the same time, economic, occupational, legal and social skills are also trained. A Master’s graduate is expected to possess qualities such as the ability to work in a team and accept criticism, a sense of responsibility, communication and leadership skills, as well as corporate and strategic thinking abilities. The individual and personal support and supervision given to students by mentor professors distinguishes the Rosenheim Master’s Degree Programme in Computer Science from courses offered by other universities.
The Master’s degree programme is distinguished by specialising in one of the following fields of study:
The students are fully prepared for all aspects of management roles by creating their own personal as well as professional profile and by studying project management and leadership.
As our modern society largely relies on information technology, career prospects in this field are better than average. Graduates of the Master’s degree programme are able to apply their scientific knowledge independently and adeptly in practice to solve complex problems related to computer science and also perform management tasks in a national and international setting. Employment in the higher civil service is also open to them.
Participation in the aptitude test will be issued if the final grade in the Bachelor’s degree is 2.3 or better.
