Why you should specialise in Computer Science

Computer scientists don’t just write code all day, they solve problems — sometimes completely changing the entire field of computer science.  

That’s why there’s such a high demand for their unique skills.  

While programmers face a lot of competition in the jobs market, computer scientists have fewer limits on their career prospects: They have better chances to advance to senior roles

As a B.Sc. in Computer Science student, you’ll develop these hard-skills

  • Object-oriented programming with Java 
  • Web application development 
  • Statistics and Mathematics 
  • IT service management 
  • Programming with Python and SQL 

You’ll also work on building career-upgrading soft-kills: 

  • Solving computational problems by building better technologies 
  • Intercultural and ethical decision-making 
  • Collaborative work 
  • Practical project analysis 

In your last two semesters, you’ll take elective courses that match your future career ambitions. Big Data? Mobile software engineering? You’ll have your pick from 9 different options. 

Your studies will all be done in English.
