Computer Science and Media

The Computer Science and Media bachelor's degree programme is an applied computer science-based degree programme with a correspondingly high level of focus on the practical aspects. It imparts, on a scientific basis, the knowledge from the fields of practical and applied computer science that is required for the purposes of developing, deploying, and operating information processing systems.

The processing of media data within computer systems represents a specific specialization and area of application, together with the design and implementation of the human-machine interface. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) will qualify you to take on skilled specialist and leadership tasks.
