Course structure

The Master course in Applied Informatics lasts three terms. The central focus in the first two terms is the project from one of the said study profiles. Current research and development issues in the study profile in question are addressed and worked on independently by a group of students. Problem-oriented learning is complemented by course offers in a project-specific module. Apart from the project, modules tailored to each of the study profiles are offered, in order to deepen further students’ informatics expertise. Both advanced theoretical concepts are presented as well as special methods and processes in the development of complex software systems treated in the widest conceivable variety of application scenarios.

The Master course is rounded off by topics such as marketing, personnel management, project management, as well as international and intercultural skills. The teaching content of these modules is particularly suited to those students who intend to set up their own business after the Master course or who will occupy a management position with personnel responsibilities in an enterprise. The third term centres on the final paper (Master thesis).

The Master course in Applied Informatics sets store on a strong practical orientation. Students who have not undertaken an internship or alternatively spent a term abroad during their Bachelor course can make up for this in a preparatory term.
