If you already hold a bachelor´s degree in the field of IT Systems Engineering or in a similar equivalent field of studies, and if you have achieved excellent grades as part of that degree and are interested in our study goals and content, we look forward to receiving your application.

Our capacity is limited due to the fact that we guarantee our master´s students small study groups and the support of an individual professor. 60 students are accepted into the master´s program each year. Enrollment is possible in summer and winter semester. 

Study content

The study content of the master's program is predominantly process-oriented. The processes of development, distribution and use of software systems play a great role in the program. The prerequisite for entry into the master's program is the completion of product-oriented academic training.

In addition to specializations in IT engineering, students also acquire so-called "soft skills" which form a major part of successful project management in software project development.
