Master profile

The KIT Deparment of Informatics offers nine different profiles in the master program. Profiles are to be seen as a structuring of the master's program and do not require additional effort. If you attend the courses required by a profile, you will receive a certificate of special knowledge in addition to the certificate. A master study without profiles with self-chosen specializations is still possible and completely equivalent.
