The Bachelor in Computer Science programme in Furtwangen is a success story looking back almost 50 years. In the latest  CHE University rankings in 2018 we achieved top placings in all areas. Employers also judge us outstanding: in the Wirtschaftswoche survey our Faculty has made it into the top 10 nationwide for the last 10 years running.

Whether you are planning a career in software development, in technical systems development, network management, IT system security, or IT consulting – with our computer science degree, you are well-prepared for the digital future.

The Bachelor of Computer Science programme stands out due to its innovative programme structure. During the foundation studies in the first two semesters, all students take the same courses. In the 3rd semester you select one of three specializations: Software Engineering, Networks and IT Security or Robotics and Autonomous Systems. Your advantage: you are introduced to all three topics during your basic studies, then you decide which of these three areas of interest you would like to specialize in.

From Winter Semester 2019/20 you can combine vocational training with a computer science degree in a Studium Plus Computer Science programme.

Software Engineering specialization

Would you like to develop new computer science systems and implement your ideas in a creative way? Understand the process of software development as an entire system. And at the same time, learn about modern software technologies in order to design, model and realize complex IT systems. Software architecture, programming, graphic user surfaces and open source-based development are the focus of this area of specialization.

Networks and IT Security specialization

If you want to play a part in shaping and securing the networked world, then this area of specialization is the right one for you. The worldwide 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, network management, network and data security and IT security management provides you with the expertise required for this booming market.

Technical computer science: Robotics and Autonomous Systems specialization (from WS 2019/20)

Are you interested in the future-oriented topics of robotics and autonomous systems? Technical systems require an increasingly broader range of software support. Automated driving, autonomous robots and networked production systems rely on computer science to be able to make complex decisions quickly and safely. Artificial intelligence techniques are increasingly being used to react appropriately in unknown situations. The focus of this area of specialization is robots, programmable components and the modeling of autonomous systems.

Studium Plus Computer Science

This completely new Studium Plus Computer Science programme will be launched in Winter Semester 2019/20! 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). Due to the close coordination of the degree programme and the training, theory and practice are optimally combined with each other.
