Our study pro­grammes

The degree programmes at the Institute of Computer Science at Paderborn University are characterised by their distinct scientific orientation, specific focal points in terms of content and the appropriate design of the forms of study used. The degree programmes are not limited to the teaching of current content, but are based on theoretically underpinned fundamental concepts and methods that endure beyond current trends.

By focussing on the fundamentals, they enable graduates to work successfully throughout their careers. The entire design of the degree programme takes this global objective into account. To this end, fundamental concepts are presented in cross-sectional courses in a coherent and interdisciplinary manner, a sound education in mathematical fundamentals is imparted and broadening and in-depth modules in individual areas are offered.
All our degree programmes are offered in the Bachelor-Masters system.

You can find more information on the individual degree programmes on the pages linked below.
