Whether notebook, smartphone, washing machine, Wikipedia or Facebook: It
is impossible to imagine our everyday life without information
technology systems. In addition to the hardware, it is primarily about
the software, i. e. the programs, apps, user interfaces, etc. that bring
the hardware to life. Informatics is the science that deals with the
development and application of these systems based on the analysis of
problems from a wide variety of application areas.
The Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) degree program provides students with
the knowledge, methods and skills necessary for starting their first
career. Afterwards, a Master's programme can be started.
Computer science is not a pure technical science. Rarely is it all about
the technical solution of a task with the help of suitable hardware
and/or software. In the foreground is also the question of what is
actually to be calculated, processed and displayed, which benefit or
damage is to be gained from it. It is also about the use, the
interaction with the resulting information technology system and how we
are changing as a result. In this respect, analysis, impact assessment
and design are equally important.
Computer scientists develop and examine, for example, multimedia
systems, process controls, georeferenced applications, assistance
systems, browser games, databases, operating systems, user interfaces,
web and smartphone applications, embedded and mobile systems, robots and
much more. They pay attention to information and functional security,
usability and extensibility.
The course deals with the theoretical, practical and technical basics of
computer science, its application to solve concrete problems as well as
the economic and social aspects of these development and application
The bachelor's degree in Computer Science at the University of Bremen is
offered as a full-time subject.
In combination with a two-subject bachelor's degree, computer science
can also be studied as a complementary subject.
Related bachelor's degree courses with a significant proportion of
computer science at the University of Bremen include, among others:
Digital media (in cooperation with the Hochschule für Künste)
Systems Engineering (in cooperation with electrical engineering and
Business informatics (in cooperation with business science)
In addition to a strong application orientation, one of the specialties
of the Bremen IT degree programmes is project studies, in which topics
of practical importance are intensively dealt with in groups over a long
period of time.
