Computer Science is the key to a digitalised world. It is the study of the foundations, techniques and applications used for the automated processing of digital information. Students enrolled in the Master’s Degree Programme advance their theoretical and practical knowledge of computation in order to engage in research and invent new technologies.


Graduates are able, after a short training period, to develop and realize simple and complex hardware, software, and network systems independently in all companies and institutions. They possess theoretical and methodical in-depth knowledge to develop complex systems from existing and/or yet to be developed components.

  1. Computer scientists deal with the basics, technologies and applications of systematic and automated information processing. They provide methods and tools for mastering complex systems in natural science, engineering and almost all other areas of human life. To do so, they use both mathematical-formal as well as engineering methods. Computer scientists are in demand worldwide and across industries. Their occupational areas and work fields range from basic research to the development and operation of innovative technologies and new applications.

  2. Graduates of the Bachelor’s Programme Computer Science 
  • have a broad basic scientific education in computer science and are able to apply what they have learned to practical problems,
  • have acquired proven programming skills, are able to handle digital data and algorithms in a confident fashion and have an understanding of the architectural principles of modern information technology systems,
  • are qualified for working in the field of IT and optimally for a Master’s Programme Computer Science at university.

Computer science is the key science of digitalisation.

Computer scientists programme the future. They are in demand worldwide and across industries in almost all fields: industry, medicine, banks, insurance companies, financial service providers, software development, logistics, telecommunications, trade, IT consulting, entertainment industry, service providers of all kinds. Their areas of work and occupational fields range from basic research to the development and operation of innovative technologies and new applications. For access to highly qualified work, it is recommended to complete the Master’s Programme in Computer Science.
