Develop and Realise the Technologies of the Future

Whether it is the iPhone, a navigation system or a DVD-player, a system’s intelligence will essentially depend on its software. Our study programme will teach you how to make products and systems intelligent as well as how to network different components to form complete applications. The programme answers questions like:

  • How is an iPhone or iPod programmed?
  • How are systems programmed which move directly?
  • How can I make a tooth brush intelligent?
  • How are ABS or ESP programmes for cars written?
  • How can you write programmes which shadow the hardware?
  • What are embedded systems?


Reasons for choosing the programme:

  • Technical Computer Science offers excellent prospects
  • Hands-on approach and close links with industry
  • Small groups and excellent support
  • Interesting and up-to-date teaching content
    Development of modern IT components and systems (software)
  • Closely linked to the content of Elektronics (hardware)
  • Soft skills
  • Opportunities and support for studies abroad
  • University has a long history in this subject area
  • Further qualification through master programme possible

Students have the option of switching between electronics and technical computer science specialisations.

Technical Computer Scientists Create Intelligent Products and Secure our Future
Our programme focuses on gaining proficiency, allowing you to understand, develop and produce information technology and embedded systems. Additionally, our graduates will be able to manage and distribute such systems as technical computer scientists. Thus our study content focuses very much on gaining specialist skills within a hands-on training situation. Lectures are joined with internships and tutorials as well as projects throughout the duration of the programme. The focus here is on programming which shadows hardware and thus today also requires knowledge of hardware itself.


Technical Computer Scientists: Skills Much Sought by the Industry
Upon graduation many industrial sectors will be open to you. The classic starting point for many of our graduates is the development of new products. Here ideas, creativity and specialist skills are required. Other professional sectors include product management. production or distribution.

The range of companies includes companies for information technology products as well as companies which use hardware-related information technology for production purposes or as integrated components.

These companies can be from the following sectors:

  • information and communication technology
  • measurement , control and feedback technology
  • automation
  • medical technology / environmental technology
  • automotive and avionic
  • safety engineering and -systems
  • instrument electronics


Demand for technical computer scientists is currently even greater due to the general lack of engineers thus your career prospects are very good!


Please Note

This study programme is taught partly in German. You will need to have VERY good German skills BEFORE you apply for it. This applies equally to both specialisations.
