General study focuses

Computer Science is currently one of the most highly sought study fields - offering diverse career opportunities. Through a combination of theoretical and practical modules, the typical one-year-long Master degree course provides core knowledge in:

Algorithms and Data Structures
Programming (Software Engineering)
Computer Systems and Networks
Human-Computer Interaction
Artificial Intelligence

In addition, students can choose from a variety of electives and further specialize in a desirable area. For example, it is possible to concentrate more on programming-oriented topics based on Software Development or, on the other hand, explore the theoretical insights of Computation.  

Admission Requirements

The process of enrolling for a Masters in this exciting field usually begins with the provision of a Bachelor degree in the same or similar area. Candidates are also expected to present strong knowledge in the areas of Mathematics and a language, most commonly in English. 

For undergraduates who are unable to meet the general requirements there is the possibility to look for courses open for students with no similar background. Still, this option might be accompanied by specific academic tests, face-to-face interviews and additional one or two years of study.

Future prospects

Upon graduation different universities award with either a “Master of Science” or “Master of Engineering” degree depending on the chosen interest path. Graduates can look for career opportunities in several public and private sectors including:

Computer Industry (Software, Hardware)
Educational Institutions/Organizations
IT/Communications Sectors
Government Institutions

As an alternative pathway individuals can also consider carrying out research activities or developing a groundbreaking innovation for the further development of the discipline. Freelancing activities are also an option, as there is an urgent need of qualified professionals committed both to a company and their personal ventures.
