Master Program: Computational Sciences

Starting every Winter Term


Modern experimental techniques generate larger and larger datasets, and simulation and modeling of complex systems has become an important tool in various fields of science. Examples include machine learning and modeling of neural networks in Computational Biology, climate and weather predictions in the Earth System Sciences, simulation of plasmas in space and astrophysics, simulation of atoms and molecular bonds in Theoretical Chemistry, and the numerical solution of many-body problems in Condensed-Matter Physics. These developments generate a need for specialized study programs.

The Master program in Computational Sciences will directly incorporate research activities with computational methods in the natural sciences. Within this interdisciplinary, research-oriented Master program, students from different scientific backgrounds will obtain the skills required for modern, computational research methods in numerous scientific fields. Students will be trained equally well in simulation science, computer science and applied mathematics as well as their selected area of specialization.

Successful completion of the program will provide you with the qualifications to start a PhD within your respective area of specialisation.

Areas of Specialization

The program offers exciting specializiations from the various departments of the University of Cologne's Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Available options are:
