Course Objectives/ Curriculum

In addition to the common basic subjects for all (Mathematical Foundations and the four modules Blockchain 1-4), there are two qualification lines:

  • Blockchain Technical Applications and
  • Blockchain Non-Technical Aspects.

Every student has to take at least 30 credits per semester.

From the two qualification blocks Blockchain Technical Applications and Blockchain Non-Technical Aspects, students can choose elective courses (including cross-line) amounting to at least 15 credits per semester.

A compulsory internship in a company or in the Blockchain Competence Center Mittweida (BCCM) is scheduled for the third semester. This is followed by the Master's project in the 4th semester.

Course objective

Blockchain technology will be the encryption base for digital value streams and digital document management of the future.

Counterfeit-proof digital evidence paves the way from the Internet of digital copies in which we now work to the Internet of digital originals and assets. Blockchain technology forms for example, the accounting base for the Internet of Things and for the sharing economyIt enables digital identity management, digital currency handling, micropayment models, and secure digital documentation of transactions, decisions, and processesThus, it is expected to massively change the state, the financial economy and the real economy, but also society in unprecedented ways.

This forward-looking development requires in-depth training of students. In particular, graduates of Bachelor courses such as Applied Computer Science, Media Informatics and General and Digital Forensics should be given the opportunity to further qualify themselves in a targeted manner.

Depending on the requirements, students may specialize either in the technical field (Mathematics & Computer Science) or rather in the business-related field (Law & Risk Management).
