Computer Science Masterís ranking now online: students evaluate their HEIs
Brandenburg University of Technology, the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Passau University, OTH Regensburg and Reutlingen University gained several outstanding marks for their Computer Science Masterís programmes in the current online edition of the CHE University Ranking. In Austria, FH Joanneum and St. PŲlten UAS were ranked highly. The evaluation was based on a survey conducted among Masterís students.
For the Computer Science Masterís ranking, students were surveyed between October 2014 and April 2015. Five selected criteria are published in the December edition of the ZEIT CAMPUS magazine: overall study situation, courses offered, teacher support, IT infrastructure and job market preparation.
Additional information about the subject of Computer Science is given on the web: 13 aspects that Masterís students assessed for universities and 12 for universities of applied sciences, as well as additional information about the departments and HEIs. ďThe aim of our differentiated assessment criteria is to encourage students to take a close look at HEIs when choosing where to study and to address the aspects that are most important to them,Ē states Sonja Berghoff, who supervised the latest Masterís ranking. ďThe ranking addresses questions such as: What is the study situation like? How well equipped is the HEI? And how successful is the transition from a Bachelor to a Masterís programme?Ē
The ranking of Computer Science Masterís programmes at universities and a separate ranking of such programmes at universities of applied sciences are now available online. One third of all subjects are reassessed each year in the CHE ranking. Information about Masterís programmes is also available for the following subjects: Business Administration at universities and universities of applied sciences as well as Economic Sciences at universities from the year 2014; Electrical Engineering and Information Engineering, Mechanical, Process and Chemical Engineering at universities from the year 2013. The CHE University Ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed ranking in the German-speaking world.
