Computer Science lies at the core of all modern industries, as computer systems and information technology are the basis for almost all of today’s production processes. Computer technology changes constantly but there are a number of fundamental principles underlying these technologies. The Computer Science program at Jacobs University focuses on understanding these principles and their application in practice. In addition to courses dealing with core competencies (programming, software engineering, foundations of computer science), you will be covering mathematics (calculus, linear algebra, and statistics) and take courses in engineering and sciences whilst also conducting guided research. Study Computer Science at one of the world’s top-ranked universities (THE Ranking and THE Young University Ranking 2019, CHE Ranking) with excellent career options in top tech companies.
