Department of Computer Science
Computer Science (BSc)
In the first three semesters, the Bachelor's programme in Computer Science teaches the methodical basics, systematic procedures and quality-oriented working techniques of computer science. Students are introduced to analytical and algorithmic thinking and deepen their knowledge of mathematics. The focus is on scientific work, programming, system development, databases and networked computer systems.
Building on this, a further three semesters are devoted to training in programming languages, operating systems and networks. Students can also choose from numerous specialisations: General computer science, bioinformatics, cyber-physical systems, data science, information security, complex software systems, telecommunications, visual computing or business informatics. The module overview provides an overview of the modules and subjects covered in the respective semesters.
Methodical knowledge is applied and further developed in projects and a 10-week practical phase. Courses and projects usually take place in small groups and are sometimes carried out in an interdisciplinary way together with other departments or companies and institutions outside the university.
The Bonn-Rhein-Sieg science region offers an excellent framework for cooperation, especially for the implementation of practical projects and theses, thanks to the scientific institutions and innovative companies located there.
Depending on the specialisation, different economic and technological fields of the future open up to graduates, making them well-trained IT all-rounders and at the same time specialists in their chosen specialisation.
Already with the completion of the Bachelor's degree, there are job opportunities wherever a computer can be found.
Those who wish to specialise further can do so in our Master's programmes: Master Computer Science (M.Sc.), Master Autonomous Systems (M.Sc.) and Master Visual Computing & Games Technology (M.Sc.). Here you can learn additional, more in-depth, scientifically based concepts, methods and techniques of computer science. In this way, you will become a generalist in the IT sector.
The BusinessCampus Rhein-Sieg supports young entrepreneurs on their way to self-employment.
Required language skills
All courses are held in German. However, English language skills are required.
The Sankt Augustin campus is located in NRW and is easy to reach by public transport from Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf or Koblenz.
