In this degree program, the basics of computer science, mathematics and knowledge from main and application subjects are imparted. Through basic and method-oriented training and the teaching of scientific working techniques, the graduates are enabled to adapt to future technologies in the long term and to carry out successful activities throughout their professional lives. Therefore, students will not only be taught contemporary and current applications, but also theoretically underpinned concepts and methods that will stand the test of time.
In addition to a broad basic knowledge, students acquire formal, algorithmic and mathematical skills, learn methods for analysis, design and implementation of (software) projects and acquire basic technological knowledge. They learn techniques for knowledge acquisition and project management and acquire interdisciplinary and social skills.
Starting from general compulsory courses on the basics of computer science and on the basics of mathematics, the students choose a focus (engineering or media informatics) and application subjects that are closely interlinked in their studies. Students are enabled to perform transfer tasks and to apply the knowledge they have acquired in core informatics to the respective field of specialisation.
