Master’s Degree Programme in Computer Science

The great data leap forward

The Master’s Degree Programme in Computer Science is designed as an application-based follow-on 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 analytical and creative aptitude for problem-solving as well as for building and developing hardware and software systems. The course also promotes relevant “soft skills” like the ability to work as a part of a team and respond well to criticism, a sense of responsibility, communication and leadership skills, as well as strategic and corporate thinking. 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.

  • Final qualification: Master of Science (M.Sc.)
  • Duration: 3 semesters (full-time study) or 6 semesters (part-time study)
  • Dual education: academic studies with “advanced work experience” is possible
  • German-speaking degree program

Course content

The Master’s degree programme is characterised by its advanced training in the core subjects of computer science, of theoretical computer science, of the mathematical processes involved in computer science, as well as its application-based focus on one of three specialist Master’s subjects:

  • Software engineering
  • Embedded systems
  • Business studies

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.
