Neuroinformatics as Minor (Nebenfach)

As of the Fall 2018, new regulations are implemented for the 30 ECTS Minor in neurinformatics. The curriculum requires 11 ECTS in programming and introduction to neuroinformatics and 12 ECTS in computational neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, or modeling.
The remaining ECTS can be chosen among a list of other relevant courses listed below. Note that this list is not exhaustive, relevant modules can be added upon request. If you have already started your minor in neuroinformatics, you are entitled to complete it under the rules that were valid at the start of your minor. Previous regulations can be found here or here.
