The Bachelor of Computer Science is the first step of the academic studies and provides the students with a broad, well-founded basis to enter the professional world. Furthermore it prepares the students for the scientific extension within the Master of Computer Science. As a rule, the programme duration is 6 semesters.

The Bachelor of Computer Science is designed as a full time programme and it is not organised in a way to fully accomodate students who already work. Almost all lectures are held during the day from Monday to Friday. It depends on time flexibility of the students whether or not work and study can both be accomodated at the same time.

Compulsory attendance applies to all lectures where course work is continually assessed like Proseminars (PS), Seminars (SE) and Practical Courses (PR).

Starting in the summer semester: From a formal-legal point of view, it is possible to enroll in the bachelor's program of computer science in the summer semester. However, we suggest starting in the winter semester, because the Recommended Course Sequence is oriented towards this.

In the summer semester, only the StEOP courses of the first semester are offered to their full extend (including examination dates). The lectures are offered as online courses with video recordings and a moderated discussion forum.
