Master of Science

The consecutive Master of Science

Digital Technologies (M.Sc.)

The application-oriented master's programme DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES will start for the first time in the winter semester 2021/22, subject to approval by the MWK and accreditation. The master's programme, like the bachelor's programme, is characterised by the unique combination of computer science subjects, the courses from the six exciting application areas and the interdisciplinary digitisation project. In the four-semester master's program, you will become an expert in the areas of digitization, its technologies and digital transformation.

Combination of main and minor subjects

The choice is yours!

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

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

They take three modules in each of the main computer science discipline and the main application area. They take two further modules in the secondary discipline of computer science and in the secondary application area. Here, too, you have the choice! Choose the modules you are interested in from the module catalogue! You can find the module catalogue in the module handbook under Study organisation.

Students who wish to pursue an academic career or have a particular focus on research can alternatively complete a research semester in the third semester in consultation with the programme's supervisors.

The special features of the course of studies are the interdisciplinary and cross-curricular Digitisation projects. These combine learned basics of computer science subjects with interesting questions and relevant problems of the application areas. In the context of the digitization projects, you will work each semester in a team consisting of students from the Bachelor's and Master's programs on an interdisciplinary problem. Together they complement your knowledge and master the exciting challenges of the teaching staff.

Admission to the Master's programme DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES 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.

The admission regulations can be found on our pages on study organisation.
