Overview

Computer science researches the basic procedures of information processing and the general methods of applying such procedures in various areas. Computer science also has the task of making the social, economic and legal effects of its application visible. The basic subjects of computer science are the structures, properties and description possibilities of information and information processing, as well as the structure, operation and construction principles of computer systems and the development of experimental and production-oriented information processing systems. The students also learn the structuring, formalization and mathematization of application areas through special models and simulations.

Computer science as a science has existed for more than 200 years. It has its origins in mathematics and electrical engineering. Due to rapid increases in performance and the introduction of the Internet, the computer world has gained enormous momentum, but these developments are only one component of computer science that is used to implement theoretical concepts. During the course, knowledge is imparted in the three major core areas of mathematics (and theoretical computer science), technical computer science and practical computer science.

 

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

 

Computer science as a core subject with the option to become a teacher is combined with a 60 CP module that is suitable for the desired teaching position and the teaching profession-related vocational studies (LBW) study area. Computer science as a 60 CP module offering with teacher training option must be combined with a core subject with teaching training option and the teaching profession-related vocational science (LBW) study area.

The degree program in computer science as a 90 CP core subject with teacher training option and the 60-module computer science module with teaching training option are divided into a compulsory area and a compulsory elective area with advanced modules in computer science.

In the major subject of computer science, at the end of the course, an exemplary deepening and differentiation of a selected field of study takes place through the scientific processing of a self-selected problem (bachelor thesis).

The teaching profession-related vocational studies (LBW) study area is a compulsory component of all teaching-related bachelor's degree programs. It consists of two educational modules, the module German as a second language and two subject didactic modules. Part of one educational science module is a school internship lasting several weeks.

The structure and course of the course are regulated by the course regulations. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. The examination regulations define the type and requirements of the module exams. In the regulations, the credit points (CP) for each module or event as well as the workload in hours for the entire course are specified.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Bachelor graduates have scientific knowledge and practical skills that qualify them for a job or a postgraduate course. Teaching at public schools in the State of Berlin is only possible for Bachelor graduates with a teaching degree option with a relevant teaching degree (Master of Education).

In addition to teaching at schools, fields of activity may include:

  • Institutes and companies in data processing and computer technology (hardware and software)
  • Providers of services in the IT sector
  • Consulting company

Computer scientists work specifically in IT departments, for example in research and development as well as the administration of networks. Due to the increasing use of technology, computer scientists are also needed in the health sector or in administration (e-government).

For managerial positions or employment in research and teaching, a master’s degree and possibly a doctorate are prerequisites.
