The MSc programme on Computer Simulation in Science (CSiS) is taught in English and focuses on the development, implementation and application of computer-oriented simulation techniques and methods to modern research problems in natural sciences and engeneering. The programme is designed to be completed in four semesters.
The required coursework for the programme includes courses in Computer Simulation, Computer Science, and Numerical Methods.

Students gain wide knowledge of model building and simulation. The ability to construct a model (abstract formulation of a problem) and interpret the results (simulation or experiment) are fundamental and require a broad basic technical education. With this knowledge graduates are well positioned to continue their education with a PhD, or to switch to industry or business. People who know how to perform computer simulations are sought by the research departments of industries where simulations are used in situations for which real experiments would be too dangerous or expensive. In recent years computer simulations have also taken on a prominent role in the finance and banking sectors (e.g. risk analysis).
The University of Wuppertal has a strong network of international partners and maintains partnerships with around 220 partner institutions across the globe.
