The six areas of IT security are at the center of the Master of Science Computer Science course Networks and distributed systems; Robotics, Computational and Computer Engineering; Software systems and formal principles; Visual & interactive computing; Web, knowledge and information processing , from which three to four must be chosen. In addition, a minor must be taken.



The computer science is now used in research and development play an increasingly important role, since the design and optimization of work processes is no longer conceivable without software solutions. As a result, the opportunities for computer scientists on the job market are promising: the demand for them is increasing. While most of them are in permanent employment, there are also numerous self-employed. They find employment in companies in almost all sectors, in public administration and in research. There they develop, program and modify hardware and software programs, especially in connection with complex information, communication and control systems.

Computer scientists, for example, check existing IT systems for their security and effectiveness. They use their knowledge and skills particularly in IT project management. The implementation of new software projects in the form of the technical mapping of administrative tasks and production controls is also part of their tasks. The development of databases and web-based information systems is also part of their work.

In times of global networking, information technology security is becoming increasingly important. TU scientists devote themselves to questions of IT security, among other things in the profile area "Cybersecurity at TU Darmstadt - CYSEC "and onNational Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE .

Research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the TU Darmstadt is excellent internationally. It clearly distinguishes itself from other locations in Germany and has the necessary interdisciplinarity to develop the potential of AI broadly and optimally and to do justice to the high social and economic importance.At the TU Darmstadt, AI research is strongly intertwined with cognitive science, which is part of theCenter for Cognitive Science is bundled.

In addition to studying, it is important to gain your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
