The aim oft the master's programme computational science at the University of Vienna is the acquisition of interdisciplinary expertise in the computer-oriented subareas of the following subjects: mathematics, informatics, astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology. You can also focus on one of the six areas.

Though the graduates of the master's programme computational science start by acquiring the theoretical prerequisites of the individual subjects, the aim of their education is interdisciplinary: to translate a given subject-specific problem into a computer algorithm using scientific tools of mathematics, and informatics. This methodical procedure enables them to analyse the complexity of current problems in detail by computer experiments and to exhaustively represent the influence of system parameters on results. The expertise gained in this way is superior to that of a team of specialists. Graduates have a solid basic knowledge of the individual subjects as well as a good command of their theoretical foundations and their translation into a computer-linguistic context. This broadening of the subject-specific competence obtained in their bachelor's studies meets the modern concerns of interdisciplinarity and therefore offers a decisive professional advantage.
