Program Description

Be a driving force in the global arena

As a subject, Computer Science is in a state of constant flux, as is evidenced by such increasingly relevant topics as Big Data and the “digital agenda”. Globalization and digitalization of business and society are leading to a high – and largely unmet – need for IT specialists.

In addition to other topics, there are bottlenecks among IT specialists with in-depth knowledge of cybersecurity. To a large extent, this high demand also arises from the fact that these are required not only in the IT industry but also in all user industries.
