Criteria for the determination of equivalence:

Admission to the master's degree programme may also be possible if a student has completed a bachelor's degree in a relevant related field. As part of the determination of equivalence, the following core areas of the completed bachelor's degree programme will be assessed:

  • 25 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Programming Languages and Software Engineering
  • 25 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematics
  • 25 ECTS-Credits Core Area: System Architecture
  • 25 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Applied Computer Science
  • 20 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Specialisation

In the event that equivalence has been established in principle but with certain qualifications missing for full equivalence, supplemental examinations may be required. These examinations must be completed during the master degree programme.

Recommended Course Sequence

The exemplary course sequence given below is recommended for full-time students beginning their study programme in the winter semester. The table shows one possible course sequence for the master's programme and is not compulsory. Delays resulting from repeated examinations are not taken into account.

The standard duration of the study programme is 4 semesters or 120 ECTS-Credits, whereby according to the Universities Act of 2002, a workload of 1,500 (real) hours per academic year must be fulfilled, corresponding to 60 ECTS-Credits (one ECTS-Credit is equivalent to a workload of 25 hours).
