Master's Degree program Data and Computer Science (formerly Master's degree program Applied Computer Science)

General Description

The master's degree program in Data and Computer Science (MScDACS) replaces the previous Master's degree program in Applied Computer Science. In addition to the name change, there are some changes in terms of content. In particular, the language of instruction has been changed to English and the admission procedure has been adjusted. It is no longer possible to enroll in the Applied Computer Science master’s program.

The master's degree program in Data and Computer Science is usually completed after four semesters. Admission is based on the current regulations of the admission regulations. After successfully completing the master's degree, students are awarded the academic degree of “Master of Science” (M.Sc.).

With the new master’s degree program, the admission procedure has changed, starting from the summer semester 2022. You can find some general information about the master's degree program in Data and Computer Science in the slides of the welcome event of April 20, 2022, starting page 13, here.

Starting in the winter semester 2021/22, new examination regulations for the master’s degree in Data and Computer Science (as well as the bachelor’s degree in Computer Science) came into force. In order to explain the changes and how they affect the program of study for the students, the Dean of Studies, Holger Fröning, offered an information event in October 2021 for all students from the 2nd semester onwards. A summary of the changes for both programs of study can be found here. The slides from this event can be found here.

You can get up-to-date information on the master's program and aspects related to the master’s program of study via our MSC mailing list.

 

Detailed information on the Master's degree program in Data and Computer Science

On September 29th, 2021, new examination regulations came into force, which renamed the Master’s program in Applied Computer Science to Master’s program Data and Computer Science and changed the language and content. The new examination regulations are available here. Important information about the new examination regulations and in particular about the modalities to change from the previous master into the new master was and will be announced via the mailing lists.
