You will develop and expand your in-depth knowledge within the areas of Data Science and Systems Complexity, Intelligent Systems and Visual Computing, or Software Engineering and Distributed Systems. All our courses offer insightful lectures covering both theory and practice. As well as the acquisition of core computing science skills, the programme also focuses on mathematics and research methodology, while research and presentation skills are developed in student colloquia. Project management and related topics are offered for those aiming to go into business rather than academia. You will make active use of all the skills you acquire in research projects, either within the university or during business and industrial internships.
Because computing science is pivotal in many areas of research, students can easily participate in one of many research collaborations with other fields, such as bioinformatics, medicine and astronomy. In addition, contacts with many businesses facilitate internships in a variety of fields, matching the interests of most students.
