Dropout, M.S. Computer Science at University of Leipzig

 –  ← Back to cv

While I was still registered I had the opportunity to broaden my formal knowledge about computer science here. The highlights from this time include:

I started studying for my masters degree with high motivation and a hunger to understand more about the theoretic backgrounds of computer science. Sadly after a while this transformed into the want to build software that actually does something and a feeling of over saturation with theoretical facts.

Taking on the freelance contract with the Max-Planck Society during this time allowed me to follow my desires more freely but it also meant that I would spend less time studying and following lectures. Eventually this led to a situation where I felt I only had time for the lectures of lesser interest where the more interesting stuff would require a bigger commitment than I was willing to provide. Once this realization sunk in I decided to drop out.
