A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
The incorporation of technology into modern society has often been the cause of political and philosophical debate. The main concern is whether technology truly helps or harms humanity. Some argue that overuse of technology is harmful to the environment, while others believe it is a necessary facet of human development.

The Master in Society, Technology and Public Policy includes a number of human, technological and applied social sciences, combining perspectives that are not met in other disciplinary courses and supported in other areas as engineering and public health. [+]
The Master aims to prepare professionals with a high command of the competences associated with information technologies, experts in cutting-edge technologies in the market, but at the same time able to adapt easily to other types of technology and suppliers. These professionals should be able to take responsibility in planning tasks and projects, designing and solving problems. [+]
The programme contents include the development of modern experimental and product oriented information processing systems. Computer science can be divided into the areas of theoretical computer science, practical computer science, technical computer science as well as applied computer science. [+]
Master in Computer Science (M.Sc.)
Computer science is the science of systematic and automated processing of information. It deals with the structures, characteristics and possibilities to describe information and information processing as well as the setup, working method and construction principles of computer systems. General procedural methods of information processing and general methods of their application are researched. The programme contents include the development of modern experimental and product oriented information processing systems. Computer science can be divided into the areas of theoretical computer science, practical computer science, technical computer science as well as applied computer science.Students will deal with the possibilities of structuring, formalisation and mathematization of application areas in the form of special models and simulations. They will acquire knowledge in engineering development of software systems for different areas of application with special consideration of high adaptability and the man-computer interaction of such systems.The programme aims to convey extensive knowledge in the subject of computer science in theory and practice as well as with reference to an application subject. This comprises methods to solve application problems and their realization in an appropriate computer form.In Göttingen, particular importance is placed on the close connection with the application subject. In addition, the practical orientation can be further developed through project work and external internships. These internships are undertaken in an industrial company or a research institute.Those selecting computer science as their subject of study should be interested in a mathematically formal as well as an application-oriented practical way...
