The Master of Science programme Distributed Software Systems specialises in the design, development and adaptation of flexible, secure and reliable distributed applications. Important aspects are the underlying software infrastructure as well as the efficient exchange of data between widely distributed locations via public, supra-regional networks. The course contents cover a broad spectrum and comprise, among other things, the development of distributed business applications as well as general web-based applications. Further topics are the development of social networks or virtual realities.
The topics of Computer Networking and Systems Software, Distributed Systems and Formal Methods, Programming Languages and Software Engineering can be studied more in depth within the Elective Areas.
