Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mathematics and Computer Science

The master progam offers the opportunity to specialize into an area of mathematics and computer science. To enable this the master program allows a large degree of freedom how to choose the courses.

Program Structure:

  • 30 CP in Mathematics in core or advanced lectures. At least 18 CP out of the 30 CP have to be core lectures. At least 27 CP and maximal 30 CP are graded.
  • 30 CP in Computer Science in core or advanced lectures. At least 18 CP out of the 30 CP have to be core lectures. At least 27 CP and maximal 30 CP are graded.
  • At least one of lectures out of the previous items has to be an advanced lecture.
  • One Seminar (7 CP, graded) in either Mathematics or Computer Science.
  • The master seminar (12 CP, graded) (preparation for the master thesis) and the master thesis (30 CP, graded)
  • 11 ungraded CP : here you are quite free either core/advanced lectures, seminars in mathematics or computer science, tutoring (in general 4 CP), language courses (maximal 6 CP), soft skill courses, master or industrical practica (6 CP), up to 3 CP for particular engagement e.g. in academic administration (ASTA, senate, faculty council).

Requirements for the Master-Program "Mathematics and Computer Science":

  • Bachelor-degree in an integrated program "Mathematics and Computer Science" or a related subject (see FAQ)
  • Knowledge of the English Language on an advanced level (in general C1)
  • Skills in Mathematics (Analysis, Linear Algebra, Numerics, Stochastics) and Computer Science (functional and object-oriented programming, algorithms and data structures, software development, theoretical computer science), which resemble the ones in the Bachelor-program "Mathematics and Computer Science".
  • letter of motivation and two reference letters (ideally one from the supervisor of your Bachelor thesis, letters should be from faculty members or members of research labs)

More information can be found in the FAQ as well as in the degree-specific examination regulations. For other questions you can contact Prof. Hein (see contact details below).
