Business Application Architectures

Master of Science

Design comprehensive IT and applications structures

In modern software development an architecture is the prerequisite for the sustainable design of complex IT systems. In planning such architectures, the applications architect plays the same central role as the traditional architect does for buildings: he or she designs a comprehensive IT or applications structure, which is then refined and implemented by others, and oversees its technical execution. This requires a fundamental knowledge of current implementation technology. They also work at the interface between the client and future users to implement their requirements. The architect therefore requires knowledge from various areas to carry out his or her job. For this reason, students are taught software, systems and business skills in the programme.
