As from September 2018 a new part-time MSc in Computer Science over 4 years is introduced as an alternative to the existing full-time 2-years' MSc in Computer Science. This new part-time MSc is aimed at students who have concluded their BSc in Computer Science and have a relevant job or who have established a startup company requiring minimum 25 hours of work per week.

The programme is taught in English.

What are the features of the part-time MSc in Computer Science?

  • The study programme is equivalent to that of the full-time MSc in Computer Science

  • You are not entitled to a state education grant - but will earn wages for your job
  • The programme is taught in English
  • There is no tuition fee, unless you come from a country outside of the EU and Switzerland.

Subjects taught include algorithmics and data structures, programming languages, data science and machine learning, HCI (human-computer interaction), image analysis and computer vision, as well as software development. By choosing certain selective courses forming a study track, you can prepare yourself for your favourite career path.

As part-time MSc student in Computer Science you have a high degree of flexibility of how to structure your programme within the the mix of compulsory and elective courses of the programme.
