What is it?

Applied Computer Science is an application-driven degree program in computer science that focuses on applying computer science methods to varied application areas. Our students attend modules on business administration and law and learn social skills that complement the parts on computer science and provide an interdisciplinary perspective. The bachelor’s program offers a good ratio of students to teaching staff.  Hand-on workshops in small groups and learning groups – that make meeting others easy – contribute to a pleasant learning atmosphere which is an important factor for successful studies.
Courses on the basics of computer science – that is, knowledge of coding, algorithms, data structures, software development, web and IoT systems and computing infrastructure – build the foundation for later contents.
The program leaves room to deepen your knowledge in current application-oriented topics such as artificial intelligence (AI), databases, the Internet of Things, web development, mobile applications, embedded systems and visual computing.
Computer science requires technical core competencies and the ability to manage and successfully implement projects. Our students learn agile project management methods developing their skills to plan, manage and implement IT projects efficiently.
However, working in computer science also requires soft skills. To this end, we support you in developing and expanding core skills such as communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving skills and interdisciplinary thinking.
Our degree program at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is highly practice and application-driven. Internships and projects are essential components of the program that will create opportunities to apply the knowledge you have acquired in real-life situations and gain practical experience. One of these opportunities is a curricular semester internship in a company in Germany or abroad.

What can I do with it?

Our graduates currently have excellent job opportunities. Unwanted waiting periods between graduation and career start are not to be expected at the present time.
Job opportunities are boosted by the ongoing digital transformation as well as the wide spectrum of possible professional fields. Wherever IT systems are needed, you are needed, that is, everywhere. Examples include large IT providers, application development and IT consulting companies, banks, insurance companies, public city administrations, state and federal governments, as well as environmental companies in sectors such as wind energy.
