The international Machine Learning Master’s program at the University of Tübingen in machine learning offers a wide choice of courses in computer science and, apart from a few mandatory courses, allows students to choose their subjects according to interest. 

Overview

To pick up on scientific trends and make the best use of the current state of research, the curriculum relies heavily on the strong research presence on site, in machine learning as well as the wider field of computer science: top-level researchers in all major methodological branches of machine learning are present in University of Tübingen– personnel that will actively engage in teaching for the Master’s Program Machine Learning. 

Since the field is obviously very young and currently developing extremely rapidly, training will naturally be based on the most recent insights and the most pressing research questions of these teaching researchers. Project work and the Master’s thesis will offer students the opportunity to develop code for research purposes and their own scientific projects.

As interdisciplinarity is an important aspect, the Master’s thesis can be supervised by a professor any subfield of computer science.

Career Opportunities and Prospects

Due to very fast technological developments in handling large amounts of data and apply findings in a wide variety of applications, there is an ever growing need for specialists in machine learning. Since this is a highly demanding area, a PhD degree is often required.

 Graduates in this international Master's program will be competent in all basic and many advanced areas of machine learning, understanding and suitably applying this increasingly essential tool for dealing with large datasets, be it in science, industry or alternative domains. The studies program deals both with generic methods and their applications to specific fields, making it highly relevant for new career and job market purposes. In this whole Master program, besides professional expertise, graduates will also acquire language skills and intercultural competence due to the program’s international nature – another requirement of the international job market, both in academia and without.
