We offer several study programs:

Information Systems

Information Systems combines methods from computer science and business administration with the aim to solve problems of enterprises in a wholistic manner. You learn to analyze problems and information needs in companies. You can develop and deploy the suitable information systems and applications.

Software Systems

Software Systems deals with the development of entire systems, taking into account systematic and economic criteria. You learn how to realize systems like simple Apps, web applications, and database management systems.

People-Oriented Computing

People-Oriented Computing deals with the human-centered design of information technology. User-friendliness, security, and cultural and ethical aspects are of core importance. You create interactive systems and visualize information.

Computation and Economics

Computing and Economics has its focus on the analysis of electronic markets, social networks, and other online platforms. You learn how information flows are balanced between providers and users. You know how to efficiently design online auctions and how to prevent manipulations.

Informatics

In Informatics you receive an introduction to the basics of computer science. You learn algorithmic thinking, so that you can analyze and solve problems from your Major study program using an "informatics perspective".

Data Science

The Data Science program offers a future-proof education: Big Data is one of the great challenges in our data-driven economy and society. You learn to analyze large amounts of data, recognize patterns, show correlations and prepare results in an interactive way. You lay the foundations for strategic and operative decisions.
