Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study General programmes
Course summary In this Master's specialisation, the focus is on learning how to design high-level software that guarantees safety and correctness while still being in control of its complexity.
Course description Software plays a role in almost every aspect of our daily lives and in every organisation anywhere in the world. It can often be a crucial key to their success. Well-structured software that is attuned to an organisation's needs and future plans can be cost effective, improve efficiency, offer better services and be innovative. Many companies, in every branch out there, are therefore looking for highly skilled software specialists. Graduates of the Master's specialisation in Software Science will have no trouble finding a job. Producing software is not merely a technological enterprise but a deeply scientific and creative one as well. Modern cars drive on 20 million lines of code. How do we develop all this software and control its complexity? How do we ensure correctness of software on which the lives in a speeding car literally depend on? This specialisation goes far beyond basic code writing. It's about analysing and testing code in order to improve it as well as simplify it.
Study subjects The Master's specialisation in Software Science is taught at the Faculty of Science. It has a course load of 120 EC (two years). The first year of this specialisation contains five compulsory courses. You can compose the rest of the programme with specialisation electives and free electives.
