The consecutive Master of Science


The four-semester master's programme DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES makes you an expert in digital transformation and shaping a sustainable future. Just like the Bachelor's programme, the Master's programme is characterised by the unique combination of computer science subjects, courses from our application areas and interdisciplinary digitisation projects.


Combinations of major and minor subjects

You have the choice!

In the master's program DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES you have the choice! You can choose one major and one minor in the computer science disciplines as well as in the application areas and thus determine your individual specialization.

The computer science disciplines:

  • Cooperative Human-Machine Interaction
  • Engineering Methods and Dependability
  • Machine Learning and Big Data
  • Smart Cyber-Physical Systems

The application areas:

  • Autonomous Systems
  • Circular Economy and Environmental Engineering
  • Digital Transformation
  • Energy
  • Industry 4.0
  • Mobility

You will take three modules each in the main discipline of computer science and in the main application area. You will take two additional modules in the secondary discipline of computer science and in the secondary application area. Here, too, you have the choice! Choose the modules that interest you from the module catalog! You can find the module catalog in the module handbook under study organization.

Students who wish to pursue a scientific career or who have a special focus on research can alternatively complete a research semester in the third semester in consultation with the supervisors of the study program.

The special features of the program are the interdisciplinary and cross-curricular digitization projects. These projects combine the fundamentals learned in the computer science subjects with interesting questions and relevant problems in the application areas. As part of the digitization projects, each semester they work in a team consisting of students from the Bachelor's and Master's programs on an interdisciplinary problem. Together they complement their knowledge and master the exciting challenges of the teaching staff.

Admission to the DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES master's program can be obtained directly with one of the following bachelor's degrees:

  • Digital Technologies, B.Sc.
  • Computer Science, B.Sc.
  • Business Information Systems, B.Sc.
  • or a degree equivalent to this

If you have an equivalent degree in a professionally suitable previous course of study, the completion of the certificate program DigiTec.PILOT or comparable courses of up to 30 ECTS is required.

Language admission requirements:

  • Foreign students need a German certificate at level B1
  • a German certificate at level A2 must be available at the time of application
  • TestDAF, DSH, or similar.


You can find the admission regulations on our study organization pages.



Part-time study

The Master's program in Digital Technologies can also be studied part-time. Details on the requirements, structure, and legal consequences of part-time study can be found here.

Before applying for and starting a part-time study program, a mandatory consultation with the designated part-time study coordinator (see below) must be conducted. During this consultation, the part-time study coordinator will agree on an individual study plan (Learning Agreement) for the part-time study in coordination with the student.
