Informatics methods are taught that are relevant in professional practice. Students should attend a course for practical and vocational preparation. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Programming language modules, e.g. programming in C++
  • Web Design and Multimedia
  • Development of service-oriented distributed applications
  • Teaching offers on special practical topics, e.g.
  • - project management
  • - system administration
  • - Security in networks
  • - Application software such as SAP

Internships with a high proportion of computer science (but which may not be part of compulsory or elective modules offered in the bachelor's programme in computer science) can also be introduced as vocational preparation.

Qualification Goals

The courses attended as part of this module are intended to impart qualifications or skills that go beyond the specialist knowledge and skills of computer science and are intended to make it easier for students to enter professional practice.


None. Basic knowledge in the field of programming at the level of the module Introduction to Computer Science is recommended.
