Master's Thesis


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

That the student can formulate, analyze and contribute to solving a current research problem in computer science independently, systematically and critically through the application of scientific theory and method

University programs are research-based programs; all students must obtain in-depth knowledge of the current research problem and methods in the master's program, so that this insight can be used to solve problems in research

Learning objectives


  • document in-depth knowledge and overview of a current problem in computer science research and its possible solutions


  • be able to reason about and with the concepts and techniques concerned
  • be able to apply and create theory courses in the subject area in connection with the formulation and analysis and solution of a problem in computer science research
  • be able to convey a current computer science problem, a contribution to its solution and the related conceptual apparatus within the framework of the research area


  • be able to use the concepts and reasoning in the subject area to formulate, analyze and contribute to solving a problem within a current problem in computer science research
