Computer Science: Computer Science and Advanced Data Analytics

The Computer Science and Advanced Data Analytics specialisation contains a full-time, two-year master’s programme.

Programme

The first year introduces you into the topic of Computer Science and Advanced Data Analytics by means of specialisation courses and seminars (60 EC). You may follow one of the suggested tracks or make your own tailor-made programme by selecting ten courses or seminars.

The 4 different tracks are:

  • Advanced Computing and Systems
  • Advanced Data Analytics
  • Algorithms and Software Technology
  • Artificial Intelligence

In the second year, students work on innovative research and applications within the context of two projects, i.e. a research project (18 EC) and a Master's (Thesis) Research Project (42EC). Furthermore, students are required to participate in the Master Class to support their research.
