What does the programme offer?

In today's world, information processing and software design are indispensable parts of our lives. In the Computer Science - Software and Information Engineering degree programme at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg), you will acquire the skills necessary to shape the future design of software systems: you will learn to create, develop and test software for the broad field of information systems.

Software and Information Engineering is a key branch of Computer Sciences. This field involves collecting and structuring the correct information and designing software that can automatically process, prepare and maintain this information. However, computers are simply a tool for you to implement theoretical concepts.

The Computer Sciences degree programme at FH Vorarlberg is ideally oriented to the needs of industry and is networked with the local IT economy.

As a relatively small university of applied sciences, FH Vorarlberg is able to offer you the individual support that is very important for success in studies in technical fields.

With only 40 new students beginning each year in the Computer Science degree programme, you are guaranteed access to the modern resources that are available. 


Collaboration with research
