Future-oriented research in the field of computer science and innovation requires specialists with comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge. An ideal supervisory relationship and intensive mentoring make sure that your strengths are promoted and that you can make use of your talents.

The dual study system of the master programme is unique in Austria. It takes the demands of the working world into account and gives you the opportunity to participate in the design of research projects at national and international research centres (e.g. AIT, Salzburg Research, SBA Research) during your studies.

Focus Areas

The curriculum focuses on five areas which it treats equally over all four semesters:

Scientific Work

Computer Science

Science and Society

Innovation Management

Computer Science Research Projects


Improving your linguistic skills constitutes a priority in all of these main areas.


Dual Learning

The design as a dual-system programme offers you not only a comprehensive theoretical education but also participation in research projects at companies, non-university research centres, universities of applied sciences and universities. An education at the highest scientific level in combination with a strong practical orientation provides you with excellent opportunities for development.
