This degree programme is relevant for all occupational fields related to internet technology. Graduates from this interdisciplinary programme enjoy excellent career prospects across the whole occupational spectrum of the public and private sectors, which are both increasingly reliant on Internet and communication technologies for their day-to-day operations.
In addition to qualifying you for career entry positions, this degree gives you the prerequisites to undertake a master’s degree programme in applied computer science, in computer science with a suitable application focus, or in a field related to computer science.
A master’s degree not only demonstrates your capacity for scientific work but allows you to continue your academic education, for instance by studying the M.Sc. Computer Science programme offered by the University of Passau or another master’s degree programme, provided you study the relevant electives. This will consolidate your knowledge and is the next logical step towards your doctorate and a potential future career in academia.
In the computer science modules you will learn to design, develop and maintain internet-based systems and web-based information systems. You will also develop expertise in the area of human-machine communication and, on the technical side, learn how new phenomena and their associated threats arise as a result of the worldwide interconnectedness of various agents and systems (e.g. social networks, IT security and internet crime), as well as how to analyse these effects. These competences are rounded off by knowledge on central technologies in the areas of information search and text analysis, as well as the latest fields of research, such as Web Science.
For further details, please consult the Academic Advice Service's information sheet (German) and the module catalogue (German).
In addition to studying Internet Computing as a compulsory core subject, you will choose an elective on the following areas influenced by the internet:
This degree programme starts in the October (winter semester) and April (summer semester) each year.
