The International Master’s Programme in Computer Science prepares students for becoming leading specialists in public and private organisations and for further studies at the PhD level in Computer Science.
After passing the curriculum the student:
- Has acquired the core knowledge in the field of computer science and can use it to analyse and resolve practical problems;
- Has deeper knowledge of one narrower sub field of computer science and of its surrounding disciplines;
- Can do independent research on a problem posed by the supervisor and present his/her results in a coherent and understandable way.
Computer Science prepares students for a career path leading to high-end technical as well as managerial roles (e.g. project/team leader or technology officer). Graduates of this programme are well equipped to join the highly dynamic software industry in all European countries.
