Computer Science

The basis of all IT-relevant technologies is the mathematical representation of real-world problems in the form of algorithms. Computer Science deals with the development and application of such algorithms for nearly all technical devices as well as various computer-aided fields.

Theoretical computer science lays the groundwork by asking how and to what degree of complexity a problem can be represented algorithmically, while practical computer science develops methods and concepts to solve these problems (e.g. by creating custom software). Technical computer science, on the other hand, deals with the fundamental characteristics of hardware. Finally, application and realization are the domain of applied computer science. The Computer Science degree program follows a research approach. Mathematical/formal and algorithmic/systematic thinking are strongly emphasized.

In teaching degree programs for grammar and comprehensive schools, students choose two school subjects. Thus, in addition to Computer Science, students are enrolled for a second subject as well as educational sciences.


Possible lines of work:

Teaching at grammar and comprehensive schools. To teach at a German public school, candidates must follow up their bachelor’s degree with a Master of Education degree program as well as practical teacher training.

Production/development of IT systems (computer design, development of operating systems and user interfaces), positions in trade/consulting (system/application programming, IT organization, system support, training), employment on the user side (administration, maintenance/expansion of IT and programming systems, training/support), academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (register CEFR C1)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
