In the English Master in Computer Science there are currently 3 possible standard minor subjects (12 ECTS): Mathematics, Economy and Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. However there is no need to take any of these courses, alternatively the general education ("Studium Generale", 12 ECTS) can be taken. Furthermore every international (non-German speaking) student has to take and pass a German language course (this is not mentioned in the examination regulation). For this reason nearly all non-German speaking students take the general education with the German language course. Students not doing it this way, are already already able to speak German or learn it somewhere else.
