«Computer science graduates urgently needed». You will come across a headline like this in the media on a daily basis. With a degree in Computer Sciences, you can also be one of these sought-after professionals.

Databases, networks, IT services, websites and mobile apps are standard elements in the activity of every company. Computer engineers are tasked with reliably implementing this software as well as ensuring its secure and stable operation. They design, implement and operate computer systems in complex environments – often at the interface between technology, business and society.

Career prospects

Computer sciences play a role in almost all areas of life. Living and working without computer systems and seminal hardware and software has become unthinkable. Careers open to computer science experts are extremely varied: whether you work as a Software Engineer, Network & Security Specialist, System Engineer, Technical Consultant, Project Manager or as the founder of your own start-up, you have a wide range of professional development opportunities.
