Program Details

Offered in English, the Master of Science programme in Global Software Development by Fulda University of Applied Sciences is a modern software development programme with strong relevance to industry. The programme places special emphasis on project work and intercultural teams.

In many companies with overseas branches, partners and customers, software development has a global dimension. It is no longer uncommon to find a development team dispersed across countries or continents. On one hand, this poses a special challenge for development methodologies and processes, on the other hand, it demands the intercultural competencies of all team members. Besides state-of-the-art technologies and frameworks of current fields such as parallel programming and web/mobile applications, this programme focuses on development methodologies and their application in intercultural teams. It has a very practical orientation and is taught entirely in English.

The programme seeks to prepare graduates for careers as developers, who are able to participate in the conception and realization of complex, distributed software systems in a global team. Successful applicants hold a first or undergraduate degree in computer science or a closely related discipline.

Of the four semesters, the first two semesters are organized in five layers: infrastructure, programming, technology, methodology and application (in intercultural teams). The programme offers one course per layer and semester, apart from the layer methodology, which consists of two modules every semester. The third semester is dedicated to writing the Master’s Thesis, as well as attending two seminars – a scientific master seminar and a seminar focussing on intercultural communication.

There is No Tuition fee for the program.

Eligibility/ Requirements

The applicants need to have:

  • A university degree with grades significantly above average in computer sciences equivalent to at least a Bachelor’s degree (180 or 210 ECTS) or equivalent. If you have a Bachelor’s degree with 180 ECTS, you have to earn an additional 30 ECTS during your studies.
