Master in Computer Science

Was beinhaltet der Fachbereich Informatik?

Ein Fachbereich, der sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten am schnellsten und stärksten entwickelt hat, ist die Informatik (Computer Science and Information Technology). Durch neue Technik und deren Einsatzmöglichkeiten verändern sich die Themen im Bereich Computer Science und Information Technology ständig. So verschob sich der Fokus in den letzten Jahren vermehrt auf Bereiche wie Data Science, Social Media, Cyber Security und auch Games Design.
Aber auch die klassischen Bereiche wie Software Development oder Programming werden nach wie vor angeboten. Oft gibt es gerade im Bereich Information Technology Überschneidungen zu den Wirtschaftswissenschaften, sodass man auch im Bereich Business Information Systems durchaus spannende Programme finden kann.Studierende, die sich über ihre berufliche Zukunft noch nicht ganz im Klaren sind, können sich für Masterstudiengänge mit verschiedenen Spezialisierungen entscheiden. Aber auch sehr spezifische Programme wie der Master of Cyber Security sind möglich.

Zulassungsbedingungen

Für die Zulassung zu Master in Computer Science und Information Technology benötigt man einen dreijährigen Bachelorabschluss (von einer Universität oder Fachhochschule). Für die spezialisierten Master wird in der Regel ein Bachelor in einem ähnlichen Bereich vorausgesetzt. Es gibt aber auch Programme, die fachfremd belegt werden können. Diese sind dann aber sehr generell gehalten und eine Spezialisierung ist hier meist nicht möglich.
