International Master Program in Computer Science


The Master program in Computer Science at the University of Siegen is a bilingual program, in which two study foci can be studied entirely in English and in which students gain in-depth knowledge and can choose from a wide-range of modules:

  • Visual Computing
  • Embedded Systems

In both study foci, students benefit from the close collaboration between electrical engineering and computer science and a tight link to research projects conducted in both disciplines at the University of Siegen. For Embedded Systems, both disciplines contribute to courses related to key areas such as hardware/software design, computer architecture, and networks. In the context of Visual Computing, the close relation to imaging sensors is an essential added value, enabling applications like face detection, online range data processing with range cameras such as the Kinect.

The international master program in computer science is a consecutive study program. It builds upon a bachelor's program that conveys the necessary skills and expertise for the master program based on the content of the Bachelor program in Siegen. Thus, after your application, we will evaluate your transcripts of records in order to ensure that you have the necessary skills and expertise for the master program in one of the two study focus areas (i.e., embedded systems or visual computing). A telephone interview with each shortlisted applicant will clarify any uncertainties about the required skills and expertise for the master program.
