The Master’s course of studies encompasses 120 ECTS credit points (C). These 120 C are divided among the following fields – Core Curriculum (30 C), Professionalisation (60 C), Master’s thesis (30 C).
The Master’s course of studies does not include any mandatory study modules. Instead, students arrange with their mentor individually tailored, goal-oriented course schedules within the scope of the study and examination regulations. The individual course schedules are approved by the Dean of Studies.
In the Core Curriculum, students acquire a deeper knowledge of systems-oriented computer science in order to develop the professional skills to apply and expand the specialized methods of the discipline.
In terms of professionalization, students have the opportunity to choose between Systems-Oriented Concentration and Application-Oriented Concentration tailored to their individual and professional inclinations, as well as professional ambitions, and to acquire core job-specific and interdisciplinary skills.
While 48 C is selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialization in the Application-Oriented Concentration, 30 C is selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialization and 18 C may be selected from the Computer Science Core in the Systems-Oriented Concentration.
Professionalization includes an additional 12 C key qualifications and competences.
As a requirement for admission to the Master’s degree program, the applicant must have completed at least a six-semester degree program with the conferral of a Bachelor’s degree in a degree program in “Computer Science”, or in a closely related discipline comprising at least 180 ECTS credits. The conferral of an equivalent degree earned in a degree program completed at a German university or a university situated in one of the Bologna signatory states also meets the requirements for admission.
As a prerequisite for the appropriateness of past academic achievements, proof of at least 90 credits in computer science, applied computer science, foundations in mathematics, and foundations in natural science must be furnished. It is necessary to provide proof of at least 60 credits in computer science and applied computer science and at least 15 credits in the foundations of mathematics and natural science.
Free Of Cost
English-language skills must be demonstrated by the minimum passing grade in an internationally recognized test, or by equivalent proof. The test may not be taken later than two years prior to submission of the application for admission to the Master’s degree program (date received).
Proof shall be provided by one of the following:
a) Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) with at least a “B” grade
b) Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) with at least a “C” grade
c) IELTS Academic (International English Language Testing System), at least volume 6
d) Internet-based test: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT): at least 80 points
e) written test in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL PBT): at least 550 points
f) concert: at least level III
g) another certificate according to the Common European Framework (CEFR), at least level C1
h) A final certificate from a successfully completed degree program conducted exclusively in the English language is accepted as proof of English language competency. The program must have had a minimum duration of two years.
The University of Göttingen, officially the Georg August University of Göttingen, (German: Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, known informally as Georgia Augusta) is a public research university in the city of Göttingen, Germany. Founded in 1734 by George II, King of Great Britain and Elector of Hanover, and starting classes in 1737, the Georgia Augusta was conceived to promote the ideals of the Enlightenment. It is the oldest university in the state of Lower Saxony and the largest in student enrollment, which stands at around 31,600.
