Basic information

Services Computing is an innovative and cross-disciplinary approach to connecting questions in the fields of economics and computer science (see Wikipedia entry). In this context, it is particularly important to discuss how IT can make a contribution to the business-relevant strategies and processes. Accordingly, topics such as service-oriented architectures (SOA), web services, cloud computing or business process modeling are discussed. In addition, the integration of novel approaches of computer science into business-relevant strategies is also discussed. For example, this can be sketched out in the discussion around the Internet of things, social media or the digital transformation of companies. Finally, it is also about the implementation of appropriate approaches in IT and consulting projects.

Degree: Master of Science Services Computing (Department of Business Informatics, 70% IT, 30% Business Administration)

Study places: 25 per semester, start in winter and summer semester

The duration of the course is four semesters. The course can be flexibly designed and studied with the help of a professional.

Admission requirements: Degree in a subject-specific course with at least 180 ECTS. Further details can be found in the selection kit (see documentation at the end of this page).

Application: Applications must be submitted by 15.01. (For the start of studies in the summer semester) or until 15.07. (For the start of the winter semester) to the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences via the application portal.

Admission: The admission takes place by the University of Reutlingen, Faculty of Computer Science. The other university partners will be involved in the selection process.

Status of the students: The students are officially registered at the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences and are also supervised by the institutions of the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences. However, the institutions of the other partner universities are also at your disposal.

Studying at the HHZ

The Herman Hollerith Center (HHZ) has an excellent technical equipment. The location in Böblingen has been specifically designed for the Master's degree courses in Services Computing and Digital Business. The technology and software are tailored to these courses. In addition, the students have access to the technical resources of the participating partners and are fully integrated into the outstanding offer of the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences. New laboratories and software offerings are developed and implemented in close co-ordination with the participating companies in order to ensure the most practical training possible.

Part-time. Research-oriented. Excellent.

The master program is conceptually based on the Bachelor programs of the participating universities and universities. In doing so, integrated projects firmly integrated into the study program ensure the practical relevance of the training. The contents of the course are developed together with the participating companies and adapted continuously. The study can be completed completely by accompanying the individual modules. After completing the master's program, a co-operative doctorate within the framework of the HHZ Graduate Program is possible. The Master Services Computing is accredited by ASIIN.

Visions to Services Computing

I have previously studied business informatics in Albstadt and have been looking for a master with more informatics content. This is how I came to the Herman Hollerith Center and applied here (Arbnora Selimi).

The focus here is excellent. I also find the cooperation with the University of Stuttgart and the Herman Hollerith Center in Böblingen, because I wanted to stay in Stuttgart (Laura Boss).

The concept convinced me. It is a good alternative to classical business informatics, because there are more computer science studies. The cooperation with the University of Stuttgart and the doctoral program (Christian Knödler) were also important to me.
