Software Engineering Master's Degree Programme, full-time

In-depth know-how in developing, implementing and evaluating high-end software

Most devices that shape our everyday lives – from computers and smartphones to coffeemakers and jet planes – depend on a guiding software code. This full-time degree programme takes graduates in practical and applied informatics to the next level. You will expand expertise in developing, implementing and evaluating highperformance software to meet the demand for an ever-expanding range of applications. Creation of high-end software is akin to building a house: you need both the skills of a craftsperson and the inspiration of an architect. This symbiotic combination is what defines the software architect. Our Master’s degree programme will empower students to become exactly that.

Note for applicants: The main language of tuition on this study programme is German, although some modules may be offered in English.
