Detailed description of the degree programme
Today, computers are an integral part of society. Thanks to software, shares can be traded on the stock exchange; companies can calculate costs themselves; parents can video chat to their daughters on their semester abroad; and the latest game on the console can be made even more realistic. The programme in Computer Science will transform you from a consumer into a creator of such technology.
You will gain extensive theoretical and practical knowledge in the different branches of IT, which you will be able to combine into global solutions. You will use scientific methods to analyse processes and problems from the occupational field of IT, and will develop practice-oriented solutions. During the programme, you will tackle application-oriented issues from the wide field of IT, which may also refer to aspects beyond the subject area, preparing you for your future career.
You will learn the fundamentals and applications of IT in a sound, practice-relevant manner, enabling you to work in a growth sector: as a developer, you will create new virtual worlds; as an administrator, you will supervise a bank’s network; or, as an IT consultant, you will accompany a company during the launch of a new software solution.
If you would like to enhance your IT skills after completing the Bachelor programme, you can progress to our Master’s programme in Computer Science, which we also offer as a part-time programme. Here, occupation and study – practice and further training are closely connected.
Content and course sequence
The Bachelor programme is divided into two stages: at the start of the programme, you will first learn the fundamentals of computer science and enhance your mathematical skills. Even in the first few semesters, you will work independently in teams and learn how to tackle theoretical content in an application-oriented manner. You will also learn the basics of business management.
At a later stage, you will enhance your subject expertise by taking software-oriented subjects such as object-oriented systems, software engineering, operating systems, databases, computer graphics, computer networks and IT security. You will also have a wide range of optional subjects to choose from.
During your block of practice in the final semester, you will gain insight into a company, where you will also write your Bachelor thesis.
Why choose us
Our Bachelor programme in Computer Science complies with the very latest standards: cutting-edge content, project-based work, a carefully designed programme structure, manageably sized learning groups, well-equipped labs and a strong emphasis on practical application will ensure you gain an excellent education.
