FK07 - Computer Science (Master of Science) full time / part time

Structure and course of study

Form of study

The Master’s programme is offered both as a full-time course and as a part-time course.

  • Full-time study: the standard study period is three study semesters including the Master's thesis.
  • Part-time study: the standard study period is six study semesters including the Master's thesis. The lecture periods for part-time study are the same as those for full-time study, i.e. lectures are mainly held during the day on weekdays, though some are also offered as virtual lectures.

The Master’s degree in Computer Science is designed to be consecutive, i.e. it builds on the Bachelor’s programme in Computer Science at Munich University of Applied Sciences. The knowledge gained from that programme is required for the Master's programme.

Combined trainee programme and Master’s study

Some of our industry partners offer temporary part-time employment or trainee programmes as part of the part-time study model, which make parallel Master's studies possible.

Further information is available under Combined trainee programme/Master's study (in German).

Course of study (new SPO, as of autumn 2010)

As of the winter semester 2010, the Master’s programme in Computer Science with the major track “Visual Computing and Machine Learning” was extended by the two additional major tracks “Embedded Computing” and “Software Engineering”.

The study programme can be followed full-time or part-time. The standard study period for full-time study is three semesters, for part-time study it is six semesters. A total of 90 ECTS points must be gained during the studies. The study plan is designed so that 24 weekly hours per semester with a total of 30 ECTS points are taken for full-time study. For part-time study this is 12 weekly hours per semester with a total of 15 ECTS points.

The study programme is arranged thematically into five areas that are each represented by a group of courses. A selection of elective courses is assigned to each group of courses depending on each track. The exact examination requirement is specified in each course description (see course catalogue). The allocation of courses to the course groups is specified in the study plan.

The Master’s programme in Computer Science has been accredited by the Accreditation Agencies ASIIN, and subsequently by AQUIN. Graduates of the Master’s programme have direct access to higher levels in the public sector.
