What is Computer Science?

Computer Science is the science of processing and evaluating information. The whole spectrum of science needs computer science for analysing its data; computer science also provides the basis for processing this data. It is hard to imagine the information society we live in today without computer science.

If you choose to study with us, you can expect extensive, in-depth training in IT. Firstly, you’ll learn the basics of: computer science, mathematics and programming. You’ll also learn key skills such as teamworking and communicating effectively. You’ll learn to gain an overview of and analyse expert contexts and solve typical computer science problems with appropriate methods.

Career opportunities

The standing and the importance of computer science is on the rise. Due to the increasing use of technology in the world, for example through the Internet of Things, more and more items are being equipped with sensors and chips. Another reason for the growing importance is the higher degree of automation with IT technology thus being applied for optimising processes in countless sectors. You'll have the chance to work at the cutting-edge of these topics – analysing complex interrelations in interdisciplinary teams in order to draft and realise comprehensive software systems. You'll be able to work in:

  • Software development
  • IT consulting
  • IT operations
  • System integration
  • Project management

Our graduates, both those with bachelor’s and master’s degrees have excellent career opportunities. Qualified computer scientists are in high demand. Many sectors have a close link to IT:

  • software companies,
  • firms with products that contain software (plant/systems engineering, automotive, electrical industry, etc.),
  • companies with software-assisted business processes (banks, insurance companies, etc.),
  • research institutions.
