Module Catalog for

Curated list of available modules for the specialization.
For students of year 2019 and further (PO 2019).

As described on the general curriculum page, all specializations follow the same structure only differing in the catalog of modules to choose from. The tables below show a curated listing of modules for your convenience, but the official module handbook on c@mpus always takes precedence.

Every specialization involves:

  • 1 Basic Module (6CP)
  • 10 Specialization Modules (each 6CP = 60CP) in roughly equal parts from computer science (CS) and electrical engineering (EE):

    • 2+ Core Modules from each CS and EE for a total of 30CP
    • 2+ Supplementary Modules from each CS and EE for a total of 30CP
  • 1 Research Project (15CP)
    The project may be replaced with a Seminar (3CP) plus two additional choices from the full catalog of core and supplementary modules (each 6CP)

  • 1 Lab Course (6CP)
  • 1 Non-Technical Module (3CP)
  • 1 Master Thesis (30CP)

There is a small set of supplementary modules that are only worth 3CP. A maximum of two 3CP modules can be picked for your studies, replacing one 6CP supplementary module.

Supplementary Modules recommended for the 1. semester are marked with .

The research project is a larger experimental or theoretical work graded after a written report. It equals a workload of 15 credit points (3 months or 450 hours) to be carried out over one semester, preferably at a university institute, or (with additional restrictions, see attached information sheets) at an external institution. It is meant to give the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge practically as a preparation for the master thesis. If no suitable topic is found, the project may be replaced by a seminar and two additional specialization modules (core or supplementary modules). A project report (in english) and a presentation of 20-30 minutes conclude the examination.

More information on the Research Project

A seminar is only pickable as replacement for the research project! A seminar and two additonal choices from the core or supplementary catalogs replace the project. More information on the general curriculum page.

The listed modules are only the seminars that are permanently registered in c@mpus. All seminars offered in english by the institutes of the departments of computer science and electrical engineering, that do not explicitly exclude infotech students, can be registered under the generic module Seminar INFOTECH by explicitly selecting the examiner during exam registration. For seminars offered by the CS department a special registration is held, which is announced during the preceding semester. For other seminars you might have to register with the professor or institute directly as they organize the seminars on a changing per-semester basis. In any case the seminar still has to be registered again with the examination office to receive a mark!
