M.Sc. International Software Systems Science

Programme Abstract

Starting with the summer semester 2015, the Faculty of Information Systems and Applied Computer Sciences offers the fully english-taught masters degree programme International Software Systems Science.

This graduate level programme (Bologna 2nd cycle education) is designed to build on from a three year bachelors degree in Software Systems Science or an undergraduate degree (180 ECTS) in a closely related area such as, but not limited to, Informatics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Software Engineering. The program prepares students for all tasks required for the analysis and creation of large networked software systems using modern methods.

This masters degree programme satisfies the guidelines laid down by the German Kultusministerkonferenz (Standing Conference of the State Ministers of Education and the Arts - KMK) on the requirements for entering doctoral studies (3rd cycle of the Bologna scheme).

Accreditation and system accreditation

The system accreditation of the University of Bamberg has been successfully completed in June 2019, when the ACQUIN Accreditation Commission determined that all requirements have been met. Since then, the University of Bamberg has been responsible for the quality management of the study programmes.

The master’s degree programme in International Software Systems Science is in its initial accreditation at the moment. Currently, all study programmes of the Faculty WIAI are in the process of (re-)accreditation.
