About this course

The Elite Master Program in Software Engineering is part of and supported by the Elite Network of Bavaria. The program is geared towards the top two percent of students in computer science and aims to educate an elite for the leading-edge areas of software engineering. It focuses on the following five central topics of modern software engineering: software engineering methods, formal methods and IT security, database systems, distributed systems and human-computer interaction. The integration of an individual study program, practice orientation, mentoring, and soft skills training further distinguish this program.
