Applied Computer Science B.Sc.
How is the Applied Computer Science B.Sc. structured?
The single-subject Bachelor's degree in Applied Computer Science (B.Sc.) is an undergraduate programme that requires 180 credits (6 semesters) to be successfully completed. The degree includes three areas of study: Core Curriculum, Professionalisation and the Bachelor's Thesis. The general teaching language is German.
Detailed information about the structure of the study programme, specialisations and modules can be found in the module catalogue ("Modulverzeichnis") following the link "Regulations" on the right-hand side of this page. Example study plans can be found in the "Prüfungs- und Studienordnung"
In the Core Curriculum, students acquire basic knowledge of and approaches to mathematics and computer science, which can then be expanded upon in the Computer Science Core and Systems-oriented Computer Science.
In terms of Professionalisation, students have the opportunity to choose a concentration tailored to their individual and professional inclinations, as well as professional ambitions, and to acquire core skills for further studies or professional practice.
Students may select one programme specialisation from one of three concentrations:
- Ecological Informatics
- Medical Informatics
- Law and Computer Science
- Business Informatics
- Scientific Computing
- Computational Neuroscience
Upon successful completion of all Core Curriculum modules as well as the required Professionalisation modules, students may write a Bachelor's Thesis in their chosen specialisation or in the area of Applied Computer Science in order to complete the Bachelor's degree.
The specific details about the structure and course of the programme are determined by the examination and study rules and regulations.
What are the prerequisites?
You do not have to be a math genius or computer freak to study computer science. A basic interest in mathematical and logical thinking and practical working methods is enough. The ability to work in a team is essential for later professional life. Knowledge of English is required. Specific expertise, particularly in programming, is not a prerequisite.
