The Master's programme in Digital Engineering comprises 120 ECTS and is completed after four semesters of study. In the first two semesters, all students receive foundational courses in order to prepare them to participate in more advanced courses. You will be offered both compulsory and elective courses covering the two core areas of computer science and (civil) engineering. Depending on your previous knowledge, we will develop your individual module plan with an emphasis on either engineering or computer science.

From the second semester onward, you will deepen your technical knowledge in the three areas of modelling, simulation and validation, and visualization and data science. In each of these areas, you will have the opportunity to choose elective courses that allow you to create your own specialisation. The curriculum is complemented by a research project with partners from the professional community, as well as elective modules in the Media and Civil Engineering faculties or the Language Centre of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. During the fourth semester, you will write and defend your Master's thesis. In the process, you will receive support from professors and external industry partners, who will support  you in the context of consultations.
