Job seeks Computer Scientist

Have you ever taught a robot how to do Tai Chi? Or crashed or cracked passwords for a smartphone as a white hat hacker to make the systems safer? Well, you'll learn that and lots more. Whether you are planning a career in software development, will be responsible for the security of IT systems or control autonomous robots - with a computer science degree you will have the best possible preparation for the digital future.

The focus of your computer science degree is on software engineering, programming, mathematics, algorithms and data structures, databanks, autonomous systems, operating systems and software quality.

The Bachelor in Computer Science programme in Furtwangen is a success story going back almost 50 years. What makes this programme stand out from the crowd is its innovative programme structure. During your foundation studies all students take the same courses. In the 3rd semester you select one of three areas of specialization: Software Engineering, Networks and IT Security or Robotics and Autonomous Systems. Your advantage: you are introduced to all three subjects during your basic studies, then you decide which of these three areas of interest you would like to specialize in.

Brand new: in the Study Plus model you can combine vocational training with a computer science degree in a unique way.

Software Engineering specialization

Would you like to develop new computer science systems and realize your ideas in a creative way? Understand the process of software development as an entire system. Modern software technologies form the basis of your degree programme in order for you to design, model and realize complex IT systems.

Networks and IT Security specialization

Do you want to play a role in shaping the networked world and making it more secure? The networking of computer systems offers both opportunities and risks which you will learn to recognize and control. This programme, with its focus on computer networks and IT security management, will make you an IT security expert.

Robotics and Autonomous Systems

Are you interested in the futuristic topics of robotics and autonomous systems? Technical systems such as autonomous driving, intelligent robots and networked production systems rely on computer science which increasingly use artificial intelligence.

Computer Science degree + vocational training qualification = Study Plus Computer Science

In this cooperative degree programme you gain 2 qualifications in 1: a degree in Computer Science and vocational training as a Mathematical Software Developer (MATSE). The close linking of academic and workplace learning provides the optimal combination of theory and practice.
