Welcome to the Master’s program Computational Sciences!
An interdisciplinary master’s degree program in Computational Sciences is offered at Freie Universität Berlin since winter semester 2016/2017. Students enrolled in the program will be taught how to apply precise mathematical and computer-based methods and to develop software for solving current scientific problems. The classes will mainly be taught in English. The instructors in the program are from the disciplines of Chemistry, Physics, Geosciences, Mathematics, and Computer Science.Applications for the upcoming admission period for winter semester 2022/23 will be accepted between April 15, 2022 and May 31, 2022. For more information please see "Application & Admission".
Every Wednesday from 16:15 - 17:45 in seminar room B.-132 at Arnimallee 22, we offer a seminar for all students of the Computational Sciences Master's program. We encourage students to socialise/communicate while attending in person. Moreover, you may discuss problems and ideas with representatives of the program coordination. From November 3rd on the associated work groups of the program will introduce themselves to the students on a weekly basis. Food and beverages will be provided at no cost.
Structure of the course and requirements
The four-semester master's program combines theoretical and application-oriented contents and is divided into the following four components:
- Synchronization: Learning fundamental methods of computational sciences and establishing an interdisciplinary profile from courses that were not worked on in the respective bachelor’s degree program
- Scientific computing: Setting a priority in numerics, statistics, or computer science
- Specialization: Focus on one of the three scientific fields: molecular sciences, geosciences, or atmospheric sciences
- Master’s thesis: Writing up a research project in the field chosen for specialization
The applicants must already have a degree as specified in §3 of Admissions statutes and a working knowledge of English (B1 GER or equivalent).
