What will you learn?
Computing Science is an English-taught Bachelor's programme. In three years you will be provided with a broad and solid mathematical foundation that will allow you to deal with and shape the information technologies of the future.

Computing Science is about learning to program, right? Right, but that is only a small part of the Bachelor’s programme. As a computer scientist, you will learn how software works, how information is represented as digital data, what the underlying mathematical and logical principles are, and how all this is implemented in hardware like computers and digital networks. You will also learn how to apply cyber security to protect IT systems.
