The four-semester master's program combines theoretical and application-oriented contents and is divided into the following four components:

  • Synchronization: Learning fundamental methods of computational sciences and establishing an interdisciplinary profile from courses that were not worked on in the respective bachelor’s degree program
  • Scientific computing: Setting a priority in numerics, statistics, or computer science
  • Specialization: Focus on one of the three scientific fields: molecular sciences, Earth sciences, or atmospheric sciences
  • Master’s thesis: Writing upa research project in the field chosen for specialization

The applicants must already have a degree as specified in §3 of the Zugangssatzung (admissions statutes) and a working knowledge of English (B1 GER or equivalent).
