Portrait

It is an academic course of studies. It lives from the relationship between general, fundamental knowledge, and specialist instrumental skill-sets; it emphasises how foundation knowledge is prerequisite to the skill-sets, but that neither can do without the other. Students are taught competences which enable them to react quickly and independently to the changing requirements of working practice. Graduates find job opportunities in industry, the economy, public service, as employees of the manufacturers of computer hardware and software, with users, ... more » more »

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates of the Bachelor programme can choose between a number of possibilities:
- direct transfer to gainful employment in business, industry, trade associations or public service
- entry into a two-year postgraduate Master's programme.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

No online courses currently available for this program.

Subject combinations non-school career fields

In principle, first-year students are able to study any combination of main or subsidiary subjects offered by the University of Bremen.

The field has no special recommendations regarding suitable combinations with the main subject.

Information on possible overlaps within the following subjects.

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Studies deal with the theoretical, practical and technical foundations of computer science, with their application in pursuit of solutions for concrete problems and issues, as well as with the societal correlations of development and application processes.

Course schedule

Major fields

The objects of research projects worked on cover a broad range of topics, ranging from technical-mathematical basics, through concepts and realisation of computer systems, up to issues surrounding the social consequences and framework conditions.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

Computer Science students should not have difficulties with mathematics or English. They need a curiosity about the historical, societal, psychological, economic and political prerequesites and consequences of large software systems. If you are interested in understanding and formalizing complex problems, designing algorithmic solutions, and distinguishing solvable from unsolvable problems you should think about studying Computer Science.

Previous knowledge of computer programming is not necessary, but students without or with little previous knowledge may need more time for Practical Computer Science so that the total number of semesters to complete the course may increase.

To be a good Computer Science student you will also need the ability to work in a team, communication skills, readiness to learn, time management and personal responsibility.

Most courses are given in German. International students need enough knowledge of German (level C1).
