i am a Syrian computer engineer, i live now in Syria, i have a German student visa to study master, the visa begin in 6-1-2014, i need to know if i can get a contract with German company and that contract fulfills the requirements of the blue cart system, can i apply for the blue card or i need to complete the master first

thank you for your time answering the question

If you fulfil the requirements for the Blue Card, you can switch to the Blue Card and start your job as soon as you will have received the Blue Card. You do not need to complete your studies.
