While a Bachelor’s degree focuses mainly on the fundamentals of the field, the Master’s degree serves to upgrade the qualifications of graduates and to analyse the subject based on research. The Master’s degree focuses more than the Bachelor’s degree on enabling and requiring students to adopt their own major focus.

For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the Technical University of Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at Technical University of Darmstadt

Graduates of the Master’s degree programme Internet and Web-based Systems can expect a labor market with an increasing demand for specialists as everyday life is continuously becoming more interconnected with computers and networks, and the transported quantities of information are growing at an enormous speed. A variety of prospects is opening up in the innovative sectors of industry, business, and research. Graduates can work in the fields of information search and text mining, knowledge management, Peer-to-Peer technology, mobile telephony, and mobile communications, or they may find employment in the software industry or in classic industries such as the chemical or pharmaceutical industry.

For this reason it is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
