Neuroinformatics

Neuroinformatics is a specialization for bachelor as well as master students in applied computer science. If you choose to sepcialise in neuroinformatics, you will have to compile a studyplan which indicates which courses you are going to take. The idea of the studyplan is to allow students to set their own emphasis that might deviate from the study guidelines. There are some requirements associated with the studyplan that can be looked up in the study guidelines. Note, only with a study plan, which is signed by Prof. Wörgötter and the faculty of computer science, you can finish you final degree. Otherwise you could be unable to get credit points for the courses you have taken. In general, you should hand in your studplan as soon as possible, but please make sure we receive it not later than the following dates:

Bachelor students: Start of the third term.
Master students: End of the first term.

In order to facilitate the process of studyplan approval, we offer a generator you can use to compile your study plan and mail it to us. As soon we evaluated it you will get a confirmation by mail.

Helpful for assembling a study plan are the examination regulations and the module catalogue (B.Sc. / M.Sc.) as well as UniVZ. Sometimes courses are renamed. In such a case you can search here for the module id to find the right course.

Important Remarks

There are several possible ways to implement the specialisation Neuroinformatics/Computational Neuroscience. As this information seems to be hidden in the study guidelines, and differs for B.Sc- and M.Sc.-Students, we will detail them here.

  • In case of the specialisation application-oriented system-development (B.Sc.) resp. the system-oriented profile (M.Sc.), a full study plan with reduced weight on Neuroinformatics/Computational Neuroscience is needed. The Bachelor’s- or Master’s-Thesis will be written in the corresponding specialisation application. The contact person for this option is Dr. Henrik Brosenne.
  • To have the specialisation certified, the Bachelor’s- or Master’s-Thesis has to be completed in the field Neuroinformatics/Computational Neuroscience. The information found on this page focusses on this option.
  • Only for M.Sc.-Students, there is the possibility of a non-certified specialisation, which requires a complete study plan. In contrast to the certified specialisation, the topic of the Master’s-Thesis does not need to be related to the chosen Specialisation.
