Seven semesters to success
The Bachelor's programme consists of seven semesters. The fifth semester is a practical study semester with 18 weeks of practical time and two weeks of accompanying courses.
The Bachelor's thesis is to be written in the seventh semester.
Semester 1-4: Basics and tools (such as programming)
In the first four semesters you will receive a solid foundation in computer science: you will learn how to program. In addition, you will learn the relevant basics of computer science and mathematics.
Semester 5: Soft skills and practice
The fifth semester is a practical study semester with 18 weeks of practical time in a company as well as two weeks of training in methodological skills and interdisciplinary key skills such as presentation and moderation techniques, conflict management and communication.
Semesters 6 und 7: Specialisation and soft skills training in projects
You use the sixth and seventh semesters to deepen your interests. From over 50 selectable modules, you choose 6 and specialise according to your disposition, for example as a full-stack developer, cloud specialist or developer for embedded systems or SAP® expert. You can also gain broad qualifications and mix and match from all subject areas.
You will work on two large projects for companies from the region in small teams or collaborate on research projects. In this way, you deepen the knowledge from the lectures and learn how to work in a team.
In the seventh semester, you will also write your Bachelor's thesis.
Projektmesse Digitalisierung (Project Fair Digitalisation)
Every semester we show the results of our practical projects at our project fair. You are cordially invited to attend: come and see for yourself.
An article on the Digitalisation Project Fair from January 2023 (German) can also be found in the News of the Faculty of Computer Science.

Computer science graduates are in demand in all industries. From software development to management, countless professional fields of activity are open. Last but not least, the close cooperation with regional industrial and commercial companies supports the entry into professional life and offers a variety of interesting perspectives.
Possible career profiles upon successful completion of the degree programme (selection):
Find your personal focus
Students of the Bachelor's programme in Computer Science are equipped with long-term usable and practical knowledge. This is one of the main reasons why our graduates have the best opportunities when starting their professional careers.
As a rule, career entry takes place as a developer. Typical tasks include clarifying requirements, designing, programming, testing and commissioning software.
Developers generally work in (agile) teams. Softskills are therefore particularly important. The Computer Science programme therefore offers many opportunities to train these.
On the basis of their first professional experience, our graduates also like to gain further qualifications in their careers, taking on (for example) tasks in
- Project management
- consulting or
- software architecture
and grow - if they want to - into leadership roles, because they have mastered the craft. The decision to pursue further education in our Master's programme can provide excellent support for this path, or even the goal of a doctorate. In addition, there is of course the possibility to start a Master's programme immediately after completing the Bachelor's programme.
