Overview

The media informatics master’s degree is an interdisciplinary computer science course that is consecutive to the bachelor’s course of the same name. The knowledge and skills acquired there are expanded and developed here. It enables graduates to solve complex problems through the systematic application of scientific methods and findings. Particular emphasis is placed on imparting technical leadership skills and the ability to work scientifically.

The course offers extensive opportunities to specialize in content. In addition to common compulsory modules from the general subject area of ??media informatics, elective courses on current topics from the application areas are offered:

  • Mobile and web development
  • Multimedia signal and information processing
  • Computer graphics and visualization
  • Machine learning and data science
  • Enterprise Systems
  • Security and cryptography

By choosing suitable modules from this range, students can individually tailor the course content to their professional interests and the professional fields they are aiming for.

 

PRACTICE RELEVANCE

The media informatics master’s course is an intensive and practical course in a future-oriented area. The teaching is shaped by the professional experience of the teachers and their contacts to industry and research.

In the third semester, the students complete a master's project as a team, which is preferably carried out with an external partner from research or industry. Over a period of one semester, the teams work on a technical-scientific problem with current practical relevance in a self-organized manner and deepen the knowledge and skills they have learned so far.

RESEARCH

The faculty's lecturers run numerous projects in application-oriented research, in which students can participate as part of their master’s degree.

The current research areas include:

  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • E-learning
  • Machine learning and data science
  • Speech processing and machine vision

Most of the third-party funded projects employ academic staff who are given the opportunity to do a doctorate within the framework of cooperation agreements with various universities.
