Combine theory and practice: with this concept in mind, students of the Faculty of Computer Science have regular opportunities to gain valuable insights into companies. Our future computer scientists are introduced to the different fields that Computer Scientists work in, gain insights into current topics in the workplace, and thus get an idea of what type of work they would like to do when they graduate. Most recently we have organized day trips to IBM, Daimler and SYSS.
