Computer Science addresses the depiction, storage, transfer, and systematic processing of information. Closely related to mathematics in its formal fundamentals, it is also an engineering discipline that has developed out of a need for fast and reliable calculations of all sorts. The analysis, design, adaption, and application of communications and information systems are the focus of the research-oriented Bachelor of Science programme Computer Science. In addition, the students deal with the design and use of software and hardware systems.

The mentoring system has been implemented to ensure successful studies: All freshmen of the Bachelor’s programme are contacted on a regular basis and accompanied by students of advanced semesters referred to as mentors in order to discuss occurring problems and find solutions for them. In critical cases, this support can be continued in the second semester.
