Modules

As an interdisciplinary master course, the Computational Sciences program offers a vast variety of modules to choose from.

Long-Term Planning
Please note that many courses as part of the Computational Sciences curriculum are offered and coordinated at different departments accross the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science. Therefore, the course availabilities as stated in the module handbook are not always up-to-date with the current course offer. In order to plan your curriculum as Computational Sciences students, please refer to the course availability lists for each area, that are updated regularly:

Please note: the course availabilities on these lists are not binding and only meant as a guide for your long-term planning. Always double-check the course catalogue in KLIPS2.0!
