XtAI Programme

The XtAI course offers a variety of modules on AI, machine learning and 3D interfaces, in which both the theoretical basics and current application scenarios of state-of-the-art AI and XR methods are taught. The course is divided into mandatory and elective area, followed by thesis and thesis defence, with students needing to achieve a total of 120 ECTS credits for the course completion. Each module provides a specied number of ECTS credits upon successful completion. Students are free to choose modules from the elective area, so that modules of interest can be attended. Students must achieve 60 ECTS credits in total in the elective area through the selected modules. The Master's programme XtAI has a standard period of study of 4 semesters.

The module distribution required to complete the XtAI course, as well as detailed information on the available modules in each area are listed below.

We have also compiled a few suggestions on how a full Master's course may be constructed from these lectures under course schedules.



In the elective area, students are able to choose their lectures from several sub-areas. For each sub-area, a minimum number of ECTS credits is required to obtain the degree. Additionally, students may only aquire a certain amount of ECTS credits from each sub-area. How many ECTS credits must or can be achieved in each sub-area through the corresponding lectures is listed below.
