Master of Science; tuition language: German
The Master of Science programme Computer Science has at its core the six fields of: IT Security; Networks and Distributed Systems; Robotics, Computational and Computer Engineering; Software Systems and Formal Foundations; Visual & Interactive Computing; Web, Knowledge and Information Processing, of which three or four have to be chosen. This is completed by the choice of an additional minor subject.

Department of Computer Science
Apart from the Master of Science in Informatics, the Department of Informatics offers further stand-alone Specialised Master’s Degree Programmes in the following fields:
Distributed Software Systems (M.Sc.)
Internet and Web-based Systems (M.Sc.)
Today, Computer Science plays an increasingly important role in research and development as operational procedures can no longer be developed and optimised without software solutions. As a result, the opportunities for computer scientists on the labor market are promising: the demand for them is rising. While most of them are in regular employment, there is also a number of self-employed computer scientists. Informatics graduates will find employment in companies of nearly all industries, in public administration, and in research. There, they develop, programme, and modify hard and software programmes, in particular in connection with complex information, communication and control systems.
Computer scientists examine, for instance, existing IT systems for their security and effectiveness. In particular, they apply their knowledge and skills to IT project management. Another one of their tasks is the realisation of new software projects in the form of technical reproduction of administrative tasks and production control. Developing databases and web-based information systems may also be part of their job description.
In times of global networking, the security of information technology is becoming increasingly important. TU scientists are dealing with questions of IT security in the profile area “ – CYSEC” and at the Cybersecurity at TU Darmstadt, among others.

The research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Technical University of Darmstadt is internationally excellent. By providing the necessary interdisciplinarity to develop the potential of AI broadly and optimally, and thus catering to the latter's high social and economic significance, it distinguishes itself from other academic locations in Germany. AI research at Technical University of Darmstadt is strongly intertwined with cognitive science, which is bundled in the . Centre for Cognitive Science
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.
