Interest in Studying?

Computer Science

Computer science is an exciting career field. Time and again, you will solve novel tasks in new projects, including ones that were considered unsolvable just a short time before. You will have to understand complex interrelationships from a wide variety of fields and take them into account in your work: the work processes around your product, the psyche of your users, the underlying technology, the existing software and other aspects. So you will not only work at the computer, but spend a lot of time communicating with customers, superiors, fellow employees.


Accordingly, the goal of a computer science degree is the ability to design software taking into account technical, business and social conditions. The most important prerequisite for studying computer science, is the ability to recognize structures and to think in structures. You can tell if you are good at this, for example, by the fact that you enjoy and find some of the following areas easy: Harmony in music, grammar in language classes, team tactics in sports and, last but not least, mathematics.

The University of Rostock offers you a variety of opportunities to study computer science. You can study a pure bachelor’s and master’s degree in computer science, although this degree also includes a professional internship and the study of a minor subject. You can also pursue an interdisciplinary degree in information systems (with economics) or information technology/technical computer science (with electrical engineering). Or you can learn to teach computer science in a teacher training or vocational education degree program. If you already have a relevant Bachelor’s degree, we can also offer you a specialized Master’s degree in Visual Computing. Rostock’s computer science programs also offer good quality according to the relevant university rankings. The beautiful city of Rostock will ensure that your studies will not only be a period of education, but also a period of life.
