After my bachelor and one year working in a technical position, I enrolled in the SEM programme which I found particularly suitable for my career objectives. Through the programme I was able to develop not only technical and beginner research skills, but also management and intercultural competences. I enjoyed learning from a variety of skilled professors and industry experts; and interacting with a diverse group of students from all around the world.
Please note! Only newly enrolled international students not from EU/EEA countries have to pay tuition fees of EUR 1,500 per semester.
The global world is heavily characterised by steadily expanding worldwide net- works and at the same time, by a global shortage of IT experts. As a result, there is a large and growing demand for software engineers and the job prospects for masters graduates in this field are highly promising.
Prospective employers of our graduates are internationally operating companies that require a broad range of skills as well as specific expertise in software development. Alternatively, there are job openings in small and medium-sized enterprises. In addition, our graduates also will be well equipped to set up their own business.
