The Swiss Joint Master of Science in Computer Science

The Master of Science in Computer Science at the University of Fribourg is part of the Swiss Joint Master of Science in Computer Science, which is a program offered jointly by the Universities of Bern, Neuchâtel and Fribourg.

The curriculum, which consists of over 60 courses and seminars given at the 3 universities in a number of areas of computer science, is customizable, giving students the flexibility to tailor a program to suit their particular interests or needs. The degree usually takes 3 semesters of full time work to complete, where about two-thirds of the workload goes into classes, and the remaining third into the Master's thesis. Most classes are taught in English, although a small number are taught in French or German. Since classes in the program are spread over the three university campuses, expenses for travel between the campuses, which are located less than an hour by train from each other, are reimbursed.

Admission is open to students who have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from a Swiss University or an equivalent degree from a foreign university. Students who hold a degree from a University of Applied Sciences can also apply, although special conditions may need to be fulfilled before admission is granted - students are requested to contact the study advisor listed below.

For additional information about the program, please see the official Swiss Joint Master of Science in Computer Science website or make an appointment by email with the study advisor, Dr. Andreas Humm (during sabbatical of Prof. Ulrich Ultes-Nitsche). You can also find us on Facebook.
