Applied Computer Science

Study concept

The four-semester master's program offers an in-depth scientific qualification, especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, distributed software, high-performance computing and IT systems. This enables graduates to advance into areas that determine future technical and scientific development to a large extent, especially in the integrated application subjects.

The Master's degree in Applied Computer Science provides a solid foundation for further scientific qualifications, such as a doctorate (PhD).

Please note that the language of the program is german. At TUBAF we also offer Master's degree programmes taught in English language.

Why study Applied Computer Science at TUBAF? 

Advanced combination of practical, theoretical and application-oriented topics of computer science and AI research and development.

Project-oriented learning experiences with intensive personal support.

Interests and skills you should bring along

Curiosity about formal methods and teamwork is just as helpful in applied computer science as the joy of experimentation.

What Alumni say

Lorenzo Neumann (25) continues to work at the Institute of Computer Science at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg after completing his studies in "Applied Computer Science." He is particularly drawn to the technical infrastructure and the application-oriented subjects. During his school years, Lorenzo Neumann got to know TU Freiberg through introductory courses.

"I was particularly impressed by the so-called CAVE, a state-of-the-art room for virtual reality," he says. He benefited from it during his studies and used technical gadgets such as mixed-reality glasses and had easy access to the institute's high-performance computer, the DGX by Nvidia. "In addition to attending computer science lectures, I also took courses in an application field." Later, he decided to specialize in technology and attended courses in physics, electrical engineering and automation systems. He was so enthusiastic about studying in Freiberg that he pursued his master's degree and now works as a research associate at the Chair of "Ubiquitous Computing and Smart Systems." "I have never regretted the decision to continue my career here at the institute."
