Content of Study Computer Science - Digital Innovation
Implementation-oriented and immediate theory-practice transfer
The part-time studies combine Computer Science with Business and Management in interdisciplinary courses. You work on your personality and never lose sight of the practical application of the contents learned.
The content of studies in the six-semester bachelor's degree programme is divided as follows: Computer Science (42%), Innovation (28%), Business (13%), Process Management (10%), and Bachelor's Thesis (8%).
The elective program in the 6th semester is your chance to specialize in your field. Depending on your interests or career prospects, you choose two specialization courses from the fields of "Computer Science" or "Innovation".

Learning content in detail
Study and career: yes, it works!
Studying part-time is challenging and at the same time very rewarding. The mix of courses in presence, e-learning units, self-organized learning as well as group and project work allows you to combine study and work well. But of course this requires a high level of discipline, consistent time management and a corresponding agreement with your employer. Ideally, you should be employed between 50% and 80% and plan about five vacation days per year for your studies.
These measures will enable you to balance your studies, work and private life well:
- Courses are generally held on two fixed days between Monday and Wednesday (from 1:10 pm - 9:25 pm), these can change per academic year.
- Optimized schedules with little idle time
Exams and deadlines are distributed throughout the semester in the best possible way.
- Preview of class times and exam dates several months in advance, changes only in exceptional cases (e.g. lecturer sick)
Electronic media (scripts, eBooks, etc.) will help you achieve your learning goals.
Our extended hours (e.g., library, laboratories) allow for study groups outside of class hours.
We record selected courses with complex theoretical content for review.
Small groups ensure personalized supervision
Professional practical training to complement studies
The professional practical training is anchored in the curriculum in the 4th and 5th semester.
There are different possibilities to complete this study achievement and/or to prove this.
As an applicant with relevant work experience (IT or Business and Management) of less than 5 years or without relevant or no work experience, you can complete a training agreement with a company. Since the training agreement is agreed upon for the duration of the 1st - 5th semester and you are therefore employed in a relevant field, you do not have to complete a professional practical training.
The training agreement with the company must be completed and submitted by the end of the application period at the latest. Proof of fulfillment of the training agreement must be provided by the beginning of the 6th semester.
You can get credit for the professional practical training if you are employed in a company relevant to the subject and can prove a project activity of at least 6 months with an interim certificate, which represents the duration/scope and type of the relevant work activity.
You complete a professional practical training in a company during the period of the 4th and 5th semester or between the 4th and 5th semester. The professional practical training must consist of 250 working hours.
The proof of activity of the professional practical training must be provided by the beginning of the 6th semester.
