The non-consecutive master degree Computer Science is intended for about 25 first-year students. It appeals to target groups which are complementary to the limited target group of the Master degree Applied Computer Science. By introducing the additional new Master degree program the Institute of Computer Science creates the conditions for increasing the number of students in all Master degree programs in computer science at the University of Bayreuth.
A broad spectrum of alternative application areas is aspired, to be more attractive for students from very different disciplines. Here these are either introductory or extended lectures with a strong focus on computer science. This concept bases on the idea, that students of computer science learn to understand the special language of the application areas through these lectures. Thus, they are able to implement and outline the application systems together with the experts of the field. This corresponds to the common concept of study courses in Computer Science.
