Contents in the myStudies programme Computer Science

Our master's program is modular. You therefore study on the basis of different topics, which are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules, there is usually an introductory and an in-depth course, which systematically prepare you for the completion of the module. Within the modules you will receive ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) points for each successful completion, which document your achievements. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.
