In principle, first-year students are able to study any combination of main or subsidiary subjects offered by the University of Bremen.
The field has no special recommendations regarding suitable combinations with the main subject.
Information on possible overlaps within the following subjects.
The computer science studies in the bachelor's degree programme are designed for six semesters and end with the degree "Bachelor of Science" (B. Sc.). [For students with the study profile "Duales Studium Informatik", the curriculum is extended to eight semesters.]
The course is modular in structure. Some courses are fixed (compulsory modules). For other modules, however, you can also choose between different courses in the respective module area (choice of modules).
The courses are assigned to one of the following six module areas:
- Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science
- Practical and Technical Computer Science
- Applied Computer Science
- Computer Science Choice
In the first semesters, general, fundamental and indispensable knowledge is imparted. In later semesters there are also opportunities for individual deepening. The range of elective courses offered in the degree programme includes a very broad spectrum of technical and mathematical basics, concepts and implementations of IT systems, as well as questions of social consequences and general conditions.
The study of computer science in the two-subject bachelor's degree covers one third of the two-subject bachelor's degree (60 of a total of 180 credit points). Two modules are fixed (compulsory modules). With regard to the other modules, you can choose from the selection catalogues. The modules are assigned to one of the following five module areas:
- Computer Science Basics Choice
- Computer Science Base Choice
- Computer Science Choice
- free choice
The great individual freedom of choice in the content design of the Bachelor's Complementary Subject Computer Science offers students of different profile subjects useful combination possibilities. This applies equally to combinations with natural or engineering sciences as well as humanities, social sciences or cultural studies.
The objects of research projects worked on cover a broad range of topics, ranging from technical-mathematical basics, through concepts and realisation of computer systems, up to issues surrounding the social consequences and framework conditions.
General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.
