Computer Science

The Computer Science bachelor's degree programme is application-based and practice-oriented. It imparts, on the basis of current academic standards, 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. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) will qualify you to take on skilled specialist and leadership tasks.

The degree programme is technically oriented and it focuses on information technology, particularly system and application software. Alongside a sound knowledge of the functioning of computer systems (with hardware and software) and communication networks, the degree programme aims to teach the principles, methods, and languages used to analyse, model, and establish specifications for complex systems and processes, to design software architectures, algorithms, and data structures that adequately address the problems in question, and to implement the designed system solutions by means of computer programming.



Degree:Bachelor of Science
Program duration:7 semesters
Admission restrictions:Numerus Clausus
Minimum GPA during previous semesters (in German)
Language of instruction:German
Subject distribution:basic theory (22.0%), foundation in practical computer science (9.0%), foundation in business administration (2.0%), English (4.0%), software methods and technologies (19.0%), system infrastructures (10.0%), subject-specific elective modules (12.0%), semester placement (14.0%), general knowledge elective module (1.0%), thesis (7.0%)
Special features:The conventional characteristic of degrees from universities of applied sciences - the practical-orientation - also applies to the Computer Science bachelor's degree programme. The course components are aligned to the challenges that will be encountered during professional activity. Since computer science is developing at a rapid pace and new areas of application are constantly being opened up, the ability to learn independently is a further important aim of the degree programme. Students will gain the ability to complete projects as part of a team and to present the results that they have achieved by means of a project paper, which is included in the degree programme overview, and an associated colloquium. Many of the required electives require students to work on smaller projects in groups of 3-4 people. Here too, students are often required to present the knowledge that they have acquired independently.
