Bachelor programme Computer Sciences

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The degree programme in Computer Sciences conveys scientific basics and engineering skills of the subject, which enable students and graduates to develop computers, software products and procedures for other sciences or applications. To this end formal methods are combined with up-to-date procedures and tools of information technology which also contain aspects of technical and practical computer sciences. Thus this education conveys a broad basis of technical skills, which students can use and consolidate in many areas. By choosing special modules students can for example gain special qualifications in the fields of “image processing”, “computer graphics”, “computational mathematics”, “human computer interaction” as well as “knowledge-based and learning systems”.

Definition of the field of studies

Computer Sciences deal with the basics, technology and applications of systematic and automated information processing. They convey methods and tools to handle complex systems in natural sciences, technology and other areas of human life and use both mathematical-formal and engineering methods.


The compulsory subjects include primarily introductions to formal systems, mathematics, computers as well as programming and the use of UNIX. Context knowledge, e.g. in the fields of project management, business administration or law, however, is also part of a well-founded education in computer sciences. Students are recommended to do a work placement of at least four weeks in the elective subjects which can be chosen freely during their degree programme. They also have to complete a bachelor's project within the framework of the courses on offer, which also involves a bachelor's thesis.
