B.Sc. Applied Computer Science

Media | Culture | Interaction

Programme Abstract

Modern computer science is expanding to include ever more fields of application. Particular challenges are posed by the fields of culture and media, fields which are characterized by their content and media-related demands on the operations of data processing. For this reason, particular professional importance is being placed on a form of applied computer science which deals with these fields.

The bachelor’s degree programme in Applied Computer Science encourages students to understand the demands of various fields of application in order to be able to efficiently solve problems in these areas using modern information technologies. In their studies of computer science and applied computer science, students receive the skills required to do just this.

Building upon fundamentals courses, focus areas in applied computer science can be selected. Possible focus areas are cognitive systems, cultural computing, media informatics, human-computer interaction and smart environments.  In computer science, modules in theoretical informatics, communications systems, distributed and mobile systems, software technology and programming languages as well as privacy and security belong to the study program.

Outstanding student ratings in the CHE ranking

In the 2018 student survey, a part of the CHE evaluation, Bamberg's computer science department scored excellently: it achieved very good marks in two thirds of the indicators. This popularity is particularly evident in the overall assessment of the study situation, which received a school grade of 1.6 - while the average value for all universities surveyed was 2.1. Computer science also occupies top positions with its range of courses (1.8), its support for studying abroad (1.8) or its academic feasibility (1.6). (to the ZEIT Campus website).
