1. Introduction

This study plan informs on objectives, structure, duration, scope, examinations and the envisaged study modules of the consecutive Master’s course of studies "Computer Science". It contains proposals for a purposeful sequence of the study modules. In particular, it regulates the selection options in the field of specialization representing the focus of studies.


2. Objectives of the Course of Studies

The consecutive Master’s course of studies “Computer Science” deepens and extends the technical basis acquired in the Bachelor Course of Studies “Computer Science” in the area of fundamentals, systems, and applications. In particular, this improves the abilities for planning, designing and realization of information systems as well as the professional qualification.

When studying, the impartment and application of deepening knowledge in a larger partial area of computer science is being focused. Thus, the students are being taught up to the cutting edge of this particular partial area. The successful Master's degree qualifies the candidates of the course of studies for independent further education as per the state of research in the selected specialization area. Moreover, they will acquire the necessary skills for independent scientific work.


3. Study Modules and Types of Impartment of Knowledge

Study modules (short: modules) will be offered in the form of courses, recitations, seminars and projects. Courses cover the coherent presentation and impartment of fundamentals, core knowledge, specialized knowledge and concepts of computer science. In recitations, the application of the lecture contents will be taught and trained on the basis of tasks to be solved independently. The aim of a seminar is the handling of a topic of computer science by independent literature studies, the preparation of a final paper, as well as the comprehensible presentation of the topic. In projects, more extensive assignments of computer science will be handled in team work by using the taught methods and techniques.

Course modules get differentiated into theory modules, specialization modules and minor subject modules. Theory modules impart deepening theoretical knowledge of general significance and thus must be attended by all students. Specialization modules impart deepening knowledge of a specific area of computer science. Minor subject modules render the acquisition of extended knowledge in an application area of computer science.

The study modules have a significance according to ECTS credit points, which corresponds to their expenditure in time. One credit point, abbreviated CP, is equivalent to about 30 working hours. Included therein are times to be present as well as times for preparation and after-preparation of the material to be studied, for the solution of exercises, for examination preparation, and for the rendering of examination performances.


4. Duration and Scope of the Course of Studies

The regular study time until the Master's examination amounts to four semesters. The Master's studies comprise modules and the Master’s thesis within an entire scope of 120 ECTS credit points.


5. Organization of the Course of Studies

The Master's studies are divided into several blocks (cf. Fig. 1). The block computer science theory imparts deepening theoretical knowledge and thus creates important prerequisites for scientific work. In the focus of the master's studies is the specialization block to be chosen by the student from the existing offer, which imparts extensive deepening knowledge in a larger partial area of computer science. Components of the specialization block are the computer science specialization modules, one project module, and one seminar module. The supplement block includes further computer science modules from other deepening fields and guarantees a certain spectrum in computer science education of the master's course of studies. Finally, a minor subject has to be chosen which should fit to the chosen specialization.

6. Master's Examination

The Master's exam is composed of the study-accompanying module exams and the Master's thesis. A module examination basically consists of one exam extending to the study material of the module. It may assume the rendering of study performances. For every module of the Master's course of studies, within one year two examination dates will be offered. Seminars are being assessed on the basis of the final paper, the oral presentation and the participation in the discussion, projects due to prepared solutions and on attestations. The Master's thesis includes the result, the preparation and the final colloquium.


7. Study Schedule

The study schedule (cf. Appendix) gives information on the study modules (name, hours per semester, ECTS credit points), their allocation to the blocks (cf. 5) and the selection options. Moreover, it comprises recommendations for a proper organization of the course of studies. The schedule is part of this study plan. Alterations are decided by the department council and must be published via the web-pages of the department.

Specialization

This compulsory optional block consists of specialization modules adjusted to one another from the field of computer science, minor subject modules, one project module and one seminar module. The department of computer science offers the following specialization blocks described in Appendix 3:

  • Algorithmics
  • Computer Graphics and Visualization
  • Development of Embedded Systems
  • Information Systems
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Communication Systems
  • Robotics
  • Software Engineering
  • Verification

Supplement

This compulsory optional block includes optional modules for supplementing the knowledge in computer science as well as in the area of general fundamentals (20 ECTS-CP in total). As optional modules, specialization modules from those areas of computer science that are different from the chosen specialization block as well as modules from the area of general fundamentals (max. 8 ECTS-CP) can be considered. General fundamentals can be any courses of the university, however, the mentor has to accept the courses as meaningful extensions of the study program.

Guided Research

Highly qualified students who are interested in research can exchange projects and/or lectures by guided research work. Prerequisite for exchanging modules is a recommendation of a professor who is willing to advice the research work.

The block "Minor Subject" comprises modules of at least 16 cp. If the Module "Guided Research (Project)" is chosen in the block "Specialization" together with a project module of the specialization, the block "Minor Subject" can be reduced to at least 8 cp (acceptance of the mentor is necessary). The sum of "Specialization" and "Minor Subject" has to be at least 62 cp.

Appendix 3. Specialization Blocks

The specialization block imparts extensive deepening knowledge in a larger partial area of computer science. The department of computer science offers several specialization blocks of which one has to be chosen. Components of this deepening block are computer science specialization modules (ca. 34 ECTS-CP), one project module (8 ECTS-CP), one seminar module (4 ECTS-CP) as well as minor modules (ca. 16 ECTS-CP), adjusted to the chosen specialization field. The following specialization block descriptions regulate the teaching offer and selection options.

The specialization modules are separated into the clusters mandatory, and optional. Each of the two clusters is further divided into subjects. From the cluster mandatory all subjects have to be selected. From the cluster optional n out of the m given subjects have to be selected (if a restriction is given). Each subject contains a list of courses from which the student can select. Subjects may also have restrictions regarding minimum and/or maximum number of ECTS credit points of modules selected from the subject.

Due to department resolution (May 2006) the following relationship between presence time (SWS - hours per week during one semester) and ECTS-CP (credit points) applies to modules of Computer Science Department. Exceptions are individually shown and explained.
Each SWS of lecture is multiplied by factor 1.5.
Each SWS of exercise is multiplied by the factor 1.
Each SWS of seminar or project is multiplied by the factor 2.
The result is rounded up to ECTS integer values.


Algorithmics
Responsible person Prof. Katharina Zweig
Educational objectives


In algorithmics one tries to find efficient algorithmic solutions to problems from all areas of computer science. Therefore, knowledge from this specialization can be applied to a wide range of topics. Besides designing smart algorithms or data structures one aims to prove their efficiency and correctness and investigates the structural complexity of the problems considered.
This specialization gives students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge on algorithmics and to learn the scientific methodology of this area. Topics range from complexity theory and the analysis of algorithms to advanced algorithms and data structures and to randomized algorithms and the computation of approximate solutions to hard problems. Lectures will focus more on general concepts of the field than on specific examples.

Embedded Systems
Responsible person Dr. habil. Bernd Schürmann
Educational objectives

Embedded systems are information processing hardware and software systems which are integral part of complex technical systems. There, they realize all central control functions and/or they process continuous data streams in real-time. They are used in almost all industrial products and determine increasingly the characteristics of those products. Due to the integration of many subsystems they often become very complex. Beyond that, many embedded systems are part of safety-critical installations. Embedded systems are needed in different applications and many variants so that they do not allow uniform solutions.

In this specialization, students will learn the systematic development of embedded systems. Depending on the choice from the offered lectures the focus can be shifted toward software engineering for embedded systems, toward developing the hardware platform of embedded systems, or toward developing individual applications (in our case robotics).

Knowledge of the behavior of the enclosing technical system is obtained by the courses of the minor subject. These are essential for understanding the behavior of embedded systems and with that for their development, too.

Intelligent Systems
Responsible person Prof. Andreas Dengel
Educational objectives

Intelligent Systems (IS) is an area of computer science that deals with making computers behave "intelligently": computers that understand images, speech, and texts, software that reasons, plans, and makes autonomous decisions; systems that interpret sensor data and user behavior and communicate and collaborate with users. IS furnishes the technologies underlying many of the fastest-growing application areas, like Internet search, computer gaming, social computing, e-commerce, electronic trading, smart homes, data mining, digital libraries, and intelligent user interfaces.

The Intelligent Systems specialization prepares students for advanced development and academic research in areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, pattern recognition, and computer vision. The course of study combines rigorous theoretical foundations with practical applications. Students have ample opportunities for research in several large and active research groups within the intelligent systems area and at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). Students interested in specializing in Intelligent Systems should have a good working knowledge of algorithms, complexity theory, and software development, and an interest in discrete mathematics, analysis, and stochastics.

Software Engineering
Responsible person Prof. Peter Liggesmeyer
Educational objectives

In order to actively manage software development projects in a responsible role, e.g., as a project manager or quality manager, additional competencies are required. Furthermore, it is particularly important today to optimize an organization's software development across various projects. The specialization block is not oriented towards software products, but rather towards software development processes and entire organizations. The students will acquire skills that prepare them to later grow into leadership positions – typically, as system architects, project managers, or quality managers. Therefore, the processes of development, distribution, and usage of software systems play an important role. In addition to increased technical knowledge in the area of software engineering, further key competencies are taught that are particularly important when it comes to successfully managing large software projects.

One special focus is on teaching processes that serve to strategically improve an organization as such. Instead of an individual project, the organization as a whole is the center of attention (learning organization). Therefore, advanced processes, techniques, and methods for the systematic development of large, complex software systems as well as organization-wide measures and processes for improving the organization itself are one of the foci of the contents of the studies.

In detail, high-performance formalization aspects of software development (especially specification and transformation) as well as suitable techniques for project management, modeling, and specification of software systems are the subject of the specialization block. In addition, there will be extensive discussion of software development processes. This will be done especially with regard to the following questions: How can systems be developed securely and with the necessary quality and correctness? Which possible improvement processes exist for processes and products?

Verification
Responsible person Prof. Klaus Schneider
Educational objectives

Since the complexity of modern hardware and software systems has been dramatically increased in the past, their functional correctness can no longer be guaranteed by means of testing and simulation alone: Modern microprocessors consist of hundreds of millions of transistors and make use of difficult computer architectures to exploit instruction-level parallelism; and in software engineering, the failure of many large projects already demonstrated the limits of actual design processes. In the future, these problems will be further increased due to shorter design cycles and new safety-critical applications. Malfunctioning systems in these applications may cause enormous damages up to loss of human lives.

New development processes to ensure the functional correctness of modern hardware and software systems must therefore make use of formal verification in addition to simulation and testing. In particular, when concurrency and nondeterminism come into play, the number of possible behaviors becomes too large to be dealt with simulation alone. For this reason, formal verification is more and more often used to find design errors. To this end, different aspects of the system like its functional behavior with abstract data types, its real-time behavior, or its possible concurrent behaviors have to be considered at an appropriate level of detail. In practice, it turned out that a single technique is not able to handle all these aspects in an adequate manner. Hence, our students learn to use different formal and semi-formal methods that are used for different verification purposes. In particular, we consider the following:

  • specification, modeling and verification by interactive theorem proving in higher-order logics
  • verification by model checking of temporal logics
  • abstractions to remove unnecessarily concrete details of system models
  • semantics of programming languages
  • correctness of program transformations and formally verified compilers
  • combinations of testing, simulation, and formal verification
  • fault tolerance and reliability

Having completed the studies of this specialization, our students should be prepared for the research in verification of the groups at our department and its related institutes.

Knowledge prerequisites

The specialization requires basic knowledge of algorithms, data structures, automata theory, and propositional logic. For example, you should know what it means for a formula to be satisfiable, how to determinize a finite automaton, what is depth first search, and what P and NP means at the level of a Bachelor student.
