Select 5 common core courses, maximum 7 specialisation courses, and 1 seminar or survey, the rest (e.g. another seminar) goes into free electives.
Special program requirements for Cyber Security, Information Architecture, and Bioinformatics are supported, select the special programs from the dropdown on the personal information page. These requirements are in addition to the track requirements.
Homologation is for special cases such as bridging programs, most MSc students should not use this category.
The ‘My Study Planning’ application for Computer Science MSc students helps you to plan and design your personal course program.
You can start the application by logging in with your netid. The first step is to update your information on the ‘Personal Information’ page, in particular select either the ST or DST track.
On the ‘Planning’ page you can add courses to your schedule from the list on the left, the courses are grouped per category such as common core and specialisation. Click on a category block to expand it, and click the dots for adding and removing courses. For each added course the education period is shown, arranged per quarter.
The next step is to fill the ‘Track Requirements’, assigning selected courses to required categories in the track. This is done by drag and drop from the middle list to the right. Any inconsistencies such as an invalid common core course, or too few ECTS are shown on the page to help you quickly arrange courses.
If a course you want to follow is not in the list (only CS courses are listed), then you can add it on the ‘Add Additional Courses’ page. The ‘Review and Submit’ page gives an overview of your selected program. You can choose to submit the program to the MSc coordinator for review.

Update 08-09-16: Search in the planner no longer shows custom courses not belonging to the logged in student (these could not be added to the schedule). Added missing quantum computing courses to the list, it is ok if you already added these as custom courses.
Update 16-09-16: Added requirement checks for special programs cybersecurity, information architecture, and bioinformatics. There is an option for selecting the special program on the personal information page. Additionally, the course contents and study goals are shown closer to the top when viewing course details.
Update 19-09-16: Fixed bug: on the 'track requirements' page, track and special program requirement errors were not updated when changing course assignments.
Update 20-09-16: Improved track requirement error messages, on the review page the satisfied requirements are now also listed.
Update 23-09-16: Added support for submitting the IEP form to MSc coordinator. When the coordinator has approved your IEP, you will get an email notification, and you can download the PDF from the 'Submissions' page. Note that this is not the final step in the submission process (but currently the final step in this application). The IEP document also has to be approved by your thesis project supervisor, and finally submitted to the board of examiners.
Update 26-09-16: Fixed some problems were requirements were pointing at wrong courses. Added E-Law and Computer Ethics from Cyber Security, which were missing. Added maximum courses per category check, put additional common core (>5) and specialisation courses (>7) in free electives.
Update 27-09-16: Approve/reject notification email now also includes the decision comment, so you don't have to log in just to see that.
Update 29-09-16: Explain to student that the final IEP course selection should prepare for the intended thesis project. The system now asks for the MSc thesis supervisor name, and has a checkbox where the student confirms that the course selection has been discussed with that supervisor. After checking it, the IEP submission dialog becomes available.
