The aim of the master degree program Intelligent Systems is to convey knowledge and skills that enable students to analyse, design and develop complex cognitive systems. Students are guided increasingly to work independently following scientific principles and methodologies. The program is explicitly designed to convey practical skills and abilities.
This program has an English-speaking branch which guarantees that courses will be offered to students not speaking German. A list of english study modules can be found here. Commands in English are veryfied by a language test (TOEFL (iBT) with a minimum of 87 points or telc English with a minimum grade of B2).
The Faculty of Technology will not incur any expenses for German courses for international students.
The aim of the master degree program Intelligent Systems is to convey knowledge and skills that enable students to analyse, design and develop complex cognitive systems. Such cognitive systems are characterized by the fact that they can perceive their environment and react accordingly in an intelligent manner. Another significant feature of these intelligent systems is their ability to learn and to thereby adapt to complex and changing environments, requirements and users. Such systems are especially relevant in the areas of robotics, virtual agents, multimedia and web information systems. Students are guided increasingly to work independently following scientific principles and methodologies. The program is explicitly designed to convey practical skills and abilities.
Industry, service providers, and intelligent systems research create a large demand for computer science specialists with an interdisciplinary training as facilitated at Bielefeld University. Computer science specialists with a background in Intelligent Systems are needed urgently in all areas where robots, intelligent assistants, virtual agents (avatars) or intelligent information systems are being developed. Possible areas of employment are therefore e.g. in mechanical engineering, production, the motor car industry, the media as well as in the development of autonomous systems (robots, avatars, dialog systems, intelligent assistants), the computer game industry and scientific research.
At the start of the program students complete/participate in the project-oriented ‘Praktikum Intelligente Systeme’. Here students have to work on one or more projects covering the areas of hardware, software engineering and development of new approaches and solutions in the area of intelligent systems. Graduates can therefore be expected to be able to work on large projects and/or to be in charge of them as well as being able to find solutions to complex problems. Up-to-date knowledge regarding IT hardware will also be conveyed to facilitate access to industrial practice. Students will participate in an additional practical project worth 10 credit points in another module ‘Projekt’.
Application is possible only for winter terms.
