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.

Both the study of Computer Science and Media and its professional activities place high demands on the ability to recognize the essential requirements from complex tasks with many interfaces and boundary conditions and to describe them in an analysis model, to develop a solution concept from these requirements and to realize this with the means of information technology.

For this bachelor’s degree programme, there are formal requirements that you must fulfil in order to be able to start the degree programme. There are also a number of personal requirements that you should meet.

Formal requirements

Overview of all recognized language certificates (pdf in German)

Common stumbling blocks

Mathematical knowledge is the basis of Computer Science and Media. First of all, you are expected to do what is actually self-evident: to master the material taught in school up to the secondary school level I certificate (elementary mathematics).

How do my skills measure up against the program requirements? How do I prepare myself?

Are you unsure whether Computer Science and Media is the right degree programme for you? Nuremberg Tech offers a range of services to help you find out exactly that.


Use the degree programme test to check whether your interests and skills match the requirements of a computer science degree programme. There is no separate degree programme test for the degree programme in Computer Science and Media, but the general Computer Science degree programme test is also suitable for Computer Science and Media.
