The Master's Programme Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck enhances and widens the skills and knowledge in the field of computer science acquired in the Bachelor's Programme Computer Science.


The Computer Science master's programme at the University of Innsbruck conveys the ability to independent scientific working, prepares for the Doctor of Philosophy Programme Computer Sciences and enables for the specialisation in a core area or an application area of computer science.

On the basis of the bachelor's programme, the following key competencies will be acquired and enhanced:

  • scientific working and literature research
  • efficient familiarisation with new application areas
  • abstraction, formalisation and critical examination of a given problem
  • autonomous problem analysis, self-dependent and creative problem solving
  • ability to manage interdisciplinary and/or international research and development projects

The master's programme provides solid and scientific education in computer science while also deepening the application of the learned to specific problems. The teaching language is English. The entwined education enables graduates to

  • develop and apply new methods for hardware-, software- and network solutions in an autonomous manner,
  • lead larger hardware-, software- or network development projects respectively (international) teams and departments and
  • possess expert knowledge in several areas of computer science and applications.

Career opportunities

The master's programme trains highly qualified experts for local and global companies. Graduates work as project managers, consultants or at middle management level in the fields of economy and science. Overall, graduates of the master's programme are able, after a short introductory period, to actively take part in the development and realization of innovative and complex hardware, software or network systems.
