For those looking for a computer science degree with a high level of application relevance, the DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES bachelor's and master's degree program is just right. The joint study program of Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and TU Clausthal is characterized by its innovative mix of the subjects of computer science, the interdisciplinary digitization projects and the six fields of applications (Autonomous Systems, Circular Economy & Environmental Technology, Digital Transformation, Energy, Industry 4.0, Mobility) in equal parts. The topics of digitization and sustainability play a central role here.
On the Ostfalia side, the faculties of Electrical Engineering, Karl-Scharfenberg, Mechanical Engineering and Supply Engineering are involved in the application areas, in addition to the Faculty of Computer Science. On the TU Clausthal side, the faculties of Mathematics/Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering as well as Energy and Economics are involved. The interdisciplinary digitization projects form the core of the DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES study program. In them, small teams of bachelor's and master's students from different semesters work together on practical issues related to digitization and test their knowledge from the subjects of computer science and the fields of applications. The questions in the digitization projects are sometimes also formulated with partner companies. These companies supervise the project teams together with teachers from the study program, which means that initial networking between students and their potential employers already takes place here.
The best comes at the end: The evaluation of the project work replaces two exams of a traditional study program! In addition, students receive university and college degrees after successfully completing their studies. This means that all doors are open to them for a career in business as well as in academia.
The application-oriented and interdisciplinary bachelor's degree program DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES imparts competencies for successful digitization in industry, research and administration, which often takes place at the transition from computer science to the application field. The foundation of the study program are the subjects of computer science. In addition, students choose their individual fields of applications as early as the second semester, thus setting their professional focus. The first year of study takes place with its courses at the Goslar location. Subsequently, depending on the chosen field of application, the studies also take place at the other study locations Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Salzgitter or Wolfenbüttel.
The application-oriented and interdisciplinary master's program DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES is characterized by the unique combination of the subjects of computer science, the six exciting fields of applications as well as the interdisciplinary digitization projects. Due to this combination within the four-semester study program, you will become an expert in digitization, its technologies and in digital transformation.
