Master of Science in Computer and Information Science

A study programme taught entirely in English

The programme in brief

Our master’s programme in Computer and Information Science at the University of Konstanz is geared towards the computer-assisted processing of large volumes of data and is designed to provide students interested in the development of complex information and analysis systems with the requisite knowledge.

It wasn't all about reading books and exams, but rather a self exploration experience. The atmosphere, location and study environment here in Konstanz brought me one step closer to realising what I want to do with the rest of my life.
