Communication, transportation, medicine, education, production, construction and housing - none of these areas can do without computer technology today, and digitization is growing rapidly. Accordingly, more and more qualified experts are needed to develop and master innovative systems and make them useful for our everyday lives. Computer scientists enjoy shaping the world with their knowledge. The six-semester bachelor's program in computer science at the University of Kassel builds on this attitude and qualifies graduates for jobs of the future.

The program covers the entire spectrum of computer science. The global approach is already shown by the dozen or so existing subject areas within computer science in which courses are offered. In addition to teaching mathematical and scientific knowledge, theoretical and methodological principles, and key competencies, internships, laboratories, and student teamwork always focus on practical applications - for example, topics such as autonomous driving, climate forecasts, or smart homes.

Computer science does not mean "learning to program" or "knowing how to use a computer", but goes far beyond this by looking at complex technical problems as well as social contexts in a scientific and interdisciplinary way during the course of study. At the same time, the handling of the "computer" is of course required, i.e. the device that converts mathematics into information. Particularly in the introductory phase of studies, the department offers students mentoring programs and other support - such as a "math bridge course" to help them pass the obligatory math test.
