Track: Software Technology
Software technology has a major impact on the economies of industrialised countries. Information-processing systems provide the backbone for almost all administrative and logistic operations within commercial production, business and public administration.
Degree: Master of Science Computer Science, Track: Software Technology
Credits: 120 ECTS, 24 months
Type: Regular study programme
Language of instruction: English
Software permeates all aspects of our life, ranging from Internet-based services like online games, social networks and cloud computing, to large-scale scientific computing systems and traffic control systems. These systems need to have effective algorithms, good performance, high reliability and a well-thought-out architecture to make them easy to build and to maintain. Such essential features very well describe the focus of the Software Technology track.
In the Software Technology (ST) track of the Computer Science MSc programme, the engineering of complex software systems takes on a central role. In this track, you will learn how to integrate them in real-world information-processing systems. Illustrative topics include distributed, multimedia, knowledge and secure processing systems, web and software engineering, visualisation and interaction.
