Bachelor Computer Science (50%)

The bachelor's degree in computer science, with a subject share of 50%, allows you to combine it with another 50% degree and is usually completed after six semesters. Admission is granted as part of an entrance examination. There is the possibility of choosing the teaching post option with an orientation of the course towards a later Master of Education, which leads to a teaching post at grammar schools. This choice enables you to develop teaching-related skills as early as your bachelor's degree. Details can be found in the course plans.

After successfully completing the bachelor's degree, students are awarded the academic degree corresponding to their first major. Please note that the bachelor's degree with a subject share of 50% does not generally entitle you to continue studying in the master's degree in Data and Computer Science. The exact regulations can be found in the admissions regulations for the master's degree program.

Admission

In the bachelor's program in computer science with a subject share of 50%, the same entrance examination applies as for the 100% subject share. All information on this can be found in the application process for the bachelor’s degree. Please note the relevant deadlines for the application process. Admission is only possible for the winter semester.


Course Plans

For the bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a subject share of 50%, there is also the possibility of choosing the teaching option with a focus on a later Master of Education, which leads to teaching at grammar schools, in combination with another 50% degree. This means that teaching-related skills must already be developed in the bachelor's degree. The specific modules for this comprise a total of 20 CP in the context of general competencies, which are credited across subjects separately.

The structure of the course without the option to become a teacher includes specialist studies in computer science with 74 CP and 10 CP in general competencies. This must be supplemented by the second main subject with 74 credits and a further 10 credits in general skills. The typical course plan for those without a teaching option can be found here (excerpt from the module handbook, page 10).

The course structure with the option to become a teacher includes only the specialist study in computer science with 74 credits, which must be supplemented by the second main subject with 74 credits, as well as the 20 credits in general competencies, for which special regulations apply, which you can find here (excerpt from the module handbook, page 47). You can find the typical study plan for those with a teaching option here (excerpt from the module handbook, page 11).

The credits for the bachelor thesis in the first main subject are not included in the total for the third year of study and the subject part. The individual modules in the course can be swapped over in terms of time, provided this does not disrupt the sequence of the courses. If a mathematics course that corresponds to the Mathematical Basics module was successfully completed in the second major, it is recommended to choose a module from the elective area of Computer Science of the 100% Bachelor's degree in Computer Science totaling 8 CP. These modules can be found in the module handbook for the 100% Computer Science bachelor’s degree in the chapter on the Computer Science elective modules.
