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 "Applied 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 that consists of an "Application Field" and a "Computer Science Specialization" (fig. 1). The field of specialization represents the focus of studies.


2. Objectives of the Course of Studies

The consecutive Master’s course of studies "Applied Computer Science" leads students in an area of computer science (called "Computer Science Specialization") and its transfer to an "Application Field" towards the current state of research. In addition to their qualifications for developing computer science systems in this area, students will be enabled to follow the state of research and to improve that state to a limited amount.


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.

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 course of studies is divided into several blocks (fig. 1). The block "Modelling and Simulation" is of central importance for the study program. In this block the fundamentals of modeling problems of the application fields will be deepened. In the block "Interdisciplinary Studies", courses will be provided together with lecturers from other departments. These courses may be joint seminars, laboratories, projects, but also joint lectures. In the "Computer Science Specialization" we offer courses which lead students to the state of research in a field of computer science that is limited by the chosen application. In addition, an arbitrary seminar (4 CP) and an arbitrary project (8 CP) in computer science and of Master's level have to be chosen. In the "Application Field", we lead students to the state of research in a limited part of the chosen application field itself. The course of studies is completed by a Master's thesis (30 LP).

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.


Appendix: Study Schedule


Appendix 1. Blocks of the Master’s Course of Studies

Modelling and Simulation

This block includes one computer science module (8 CP) and a complementing module from the application fields.

The complementing modules of the application fields are listed in the specialization blocks (Appendix 3).

Interdisciplinary Studies


The modules of this block (8 CP) are listed in the specialization blocks (Appendix 3).
These modules can be replaced be modules of student's choice.

Computer Science Specialization
Specialization in the Application Field

These two blocks form the individually chosen specialization field. The corresponding modules are listed in the specialization blocks of Appendix 3. The department of computer science currently offers the following areas:

  • Ambient Systems
  • Embedded Systems
  • Automotive Systems
  • Information Management
  • Communication Systems
  • Mathematical Modelling
  • Production and Construction

Scientific Works

This block includes the student's works which are done during the Master's course of studies. These are one seminar (4 LP), a project (8 LP), and the Master's thesis (30 LP). They can be chosen from the Master's courses of the computer science department without restrictions.

Guided Research

This block includes two research-oriented modules.

The research projects can replace the project in the block "Scientific Works" or the interdisciplinary project (depends on the topic). The publication module can be placed in the block "Computer Science Specialization").

Appendix 3. Specializations

The specialization imparts extensive deepening knowledge in a partial area of computer science that is defined by the chosen application and the application field itself. The department of computer science offers several specialization possibilities of which one has to be chosen. Components of this specialization are:

  • Application field specific module of the block "Modelling and Simulation".
  • Modules of the block "Interdisciplinary Studies".
  • Modules of the block "Computer Science Specialization".
  • Modules of the block "Application Field".

The following specialization 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.

Embedded Systems
Responsible person Prof. Klaus Schneider
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.

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 dependable embedded systems or toward the architecture of embedded systems.
