During your computer science studies you will complete eight modules:

  • The specialisation modules on offer form the focal areas of your technical profile. At the start of your studies, you will choose two out of a possible five. Alternatively, you can choose your second module from the technical master’s degrees in Mechatronics or Energy Technology and Energy Economics at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences.
  • The Contextual Studies are useful for interdisciplinary exchange with students from all master’s degree programmes at the university.
  • Finally, there are four compulsory modules consisting of basic subjects.
