    DIRK FREI STUDYING AT UNIVERSITY OF PASSAU

    I wanted to pursue my master's from a foreign university. I also have work experience for over 2-3 years. Thus, I decided to continue my studies in the same field to have an in-depth insight into computer science. Then, I got to know about this university, which is not too far from where I stay. I applied to the university with the help of an application form that was available online.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I am studying an interesting as well as a varied course curriculum. On completing this program, I will be able to comprehend computer science problems and their applications, its structure, and abstract models comprehensively. Moreover, I will have the relevant knowledge to define and implement state-of-the-art solutions.
