Program Details

Kaiserslautern is one of the largest IT locations in Germany with the Department of Computer Science of the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern forming its core. The Department founded in 1974 offers a unique research environment within the university and the associated, internationally renowned institutes (Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental SW Engineering, German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Max Planck Institute for Software Systems). The institutes offer lectures, projects, Master’s theses, and student assistant jobs.

The Master’s programme in Computer Science improves students’ competencies in planning, designing and creating information systems and/or embedded software systems ultimately leading to a professional qualification.

During the first three semesters, students choose lectures, a project (lab) and a seminar in one self-selected area of specialization, other areas in computer science, and a supplementary subject.

The following specializations are offered:

  • Algorithmics and Deduction
  • Embedded Systems and Robotics
  • Information Systems
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Distributed and Networked Systems
  • Software Engineering
  • Visualization and Scientific Computing

The supplementary subjects comprise about 25% of the course of studies. In the fourth semester, every student has to write a Master’s thesis.
