B.Sc. Computer Science

Teaching Language: German

About the studyprogram

Research-oriented

Students who study Computer Science at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg benefit from an accredited bachelor degree based on recognized scientific standards.

Professional Qualifying

A university bachelor degree provides you with all the foundations required to start a professional career in the area of IT and continue educating yourself on your own.

Bachelor-Thesis

Your first scientific work that you create under supervision. You work on various topics and develop a prototype.

Software Systems

Learn the development of complex application software with great demands on correctness and maintainability.

Computer Architecture

Learn the principles of computers, operating systems and networks and apply this knowledge in practice.

Theoretical Knowledge

Learn the basic mathematical foundations required to design and analyse a computer system.

The all-rounder among our IT study programs: everything is included, from software design to hardware. After your studies, you will have mastered the basics of computer science and can either specialize further in one of our IT master study programs or start your career directly.

First semester schedule

Sommersemester 2024 (version from 10.05.2024)

To make our first semester more successful, we offer you the possibility to view your schedule directly. In future semesters, you will have more freedom and need a personalized schedule.

Events:

  • 1 lecture every week and one more lecture every second week (3 semester hours = 3 × 45 min)
  • 1 exercise every second week (1 semester hours = 1 × 45 min)

Exam requirements:

No prerequisite is required. However, experience shows that the exercise should be attended if you want to pass the exam.

Further information:

The module deals with physical and electrical engineering backgrounds that contribute to the understanding of technical computer science. Transistors, electromagnetic fields and circuits are discussed.
