Are you interested in creating systems such as a robotic lawnmower, an intelligent assistant for people with disabilities, a smart water management controller that prevents floods in a big city or virtual-reality glasses for crime-scene investigators? As a student of the Applied Computer Science programme you’ll be working with the newest software and embedded hardware technologies that make such systems possible.



All the lessons are taught in English, and you will also work alongside students with 25 other nationalities. Outside the classroom, you have the opportunity to join a study association and connect with like-minded people who share your passions.


Option Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The first quarter of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Applied Computer Science share a common base. If you find that you like designing and building hardware more than programming, you can always switch programmes.
