|Standard period of study:
The goal of the Master's program in Computer Science is to qualify students for managerial positions in software development at various levels of abstraction for applications ranging from control engineering to complex business applications.
The value share realized by software is increasing more and more in many products such as car. Many business processes are being automated, such as ordering via the web. The demand for computer scientists, especially in the region, therefore exceeds the supply even in the worst recession in 30 years. Developing applications with complex algorithms in a repeatable process at a defined level of quality requires increasingly comprehensive qualifications. New research results show that software development can only be taught "academically" to a limited extent in a lecture hall with 500 students. Successful teaching in software development requires rather the more individual teaching conditions of e.g. a music university, where the student expands his theoretical horizon, develops step by step more and more complex works and gains security in the creative process through the criticism of the professor, competes with his works and thus lays the foundation for a job as a software architect. Just as the professor at a conservatory can himself masterfully play the piano, for example, all professors in the master's program master their field in practice and theory at the cutting edge of research.
