Calling all Master’s students of Computer Science:
Boost your CV with this once-in-a-lifetime experience and graduate from two universities within one study programme!


Together with our partner University of Ljubljana, TU Graz offers the possibility to spend at least one semester of your Master’s abroad in order to deepen your expertise and gain international experience. Your Master’s thesis will be supervised by both universities. After your return and graduation, you will receive not one but two certificates: one from TU Graz and one from your host university.

Daniel Skocaj, Associate Professor at the University of Ljubljana, about the Double Degree:
“University of Ljubljana offers many courses from different areas of Computer and Information science that can well complement the study programme of a visiting student. The Double Degree Programme is also a great opportunity to get acquainted with the international research and business environment as well as to establish connections and collaboration with students and researchers during the stay in the pleasant city of Ljubljana.
After finishing the programme, the student is awarded with two master degrees, demonstrating his or her ambition and competence, and serving as a solid foundation of his career path.”
