The first part of the degree programme (semesters 1 through 3) is used to provide you with basic courses. The focus here is on algorithmic problem solving and programming. The mathematical foundations of computer science, construction of computers and networks and working with databases are also important aspects of this foundational part of the programme.

The second part (semester 4 through 6) is very practice-oriented, with an internship and project work making up core elements. This portion of the programme is also when specialization into a field of distributed systems (web applications) takes place. In the sixth semester, a wide range of subjects are available for you for elective courses, including Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual Reality, Mobile Computing or Business Informatics, or you have the option of completing a semester abroad.
