The Intelligent Adaptive Systems MSc course from University of Hamburg aims to provide students with the ability to create these intelligent adaptive systems and to prepare them for a future market, where intelligent behaviour is considered the standard for computer systems. 


Course Details

The Intelligent Adaptive Systems MSc course from University of Hamburg is a 2-year, research-oriented programme taught in English, integrating concepts from informatics, robotics, and neuro-cognition, taught by international experts in the field.

The curriculum is focused on the area of smart technology and intelligent adaptive systems and provides in-depth training in this area. The selected modules provide a comprehensive overview including technical aspects and state-of-the art algorithms and methods. Students are introduced to current research in the corresponding fields and have the opportunity to deepen the acquired knowledge by participating in international research projects.

As one of the few computer science programmes in Germany that are taught completely in English, the Master course „Intelligent Adaptive Systems“ prepares students for international research and work. The inter-student exchange is fostered in seminars and work groups and extended in extra-curricular discussions and activities. Through the proximity to current research projects, students have the possibility of a smooth transition into collaborative research environments and continuing education and study.

Career Opportunities

The programme combines technical and cognitive aspects to optimally prepare students for a future, where humans are surrounded by intelligent systems that learn and adapt continuously to their users through interaction. This ranges from simple interaction systems to complex service robots that act together with us in domestic environments in order to support and help us in everyday life. Career options are within research and development in the fast growing area of robotics and human-machine interfaces, in the neurosciences, as well as consulting and customer care.
