Changes to Regulations / Transition to New Regulations

The following information is not yet binding, but only serves as preliminary information for students planning to change to the new study regulations.

It will be possible for students to finish under the current regulations as long as one stays within the duration of a regular study period.

 

From fall semester 2021 (HS21), we are planning to bring into force a new set of program regulations. This will especially affect the Master's degree programs in Informatics.

All students beginning in fall 2020 (HS20) will have the option to stay in the current study regulations or switch to the new one once it is in place.

Major changes

The new study regulations will:

  • implement new structures
  • not offer Computing and Economics any more
  • offer a new Major in Artificial Intelligence

  • Master's Basic module: Does not exist anymore in the new study regulations; can be counted as an INF elective.
  • Master Project: will be reduced to 15 ECTS in the new study regulations, offerings are 18 ECTS --> 3 points will be credited as INF elective.
  • Minor programs: by changing to the new program regulations the minor will change too.

 

Information Systems

  • All courses of the new study regulations already exist
  • “Information Management” becomes a required course
  • There is no more requirement for OEC-courses; instead there is the new core elective area on IS
  • Only benefit of new study regulations for students choosing Information System is no OEC-courses required in Major
  • But: quality indicator of the new degree.
