The concept of the degree programme is "computer science with a focus on engineering ". This practice-oriented computer science degree is divided into seven semesters. By the way, the Hochschule Bremen offers several Bachelor's degree programmes in the field of computer science: depending on your interests, you can also choose an international orientation or a dual programme.

The degree programme in Computer Engineering involves a large element of project work in which you work on interdisciplinary topics with a larger group of students. This opens up the possibility to choose where to undertake practical phases. The desired interdisciplinarity and the possible cooperation with different partners of the HSB particularly promote your methodological and interpersonal competences.

You build individual profile through such projects and elective modules. In the lab practicals you can acquire or expand key competences. As a rule, the elective content is always linked to the research activities of your lecturers.

Career prospects

The application of computer technology in almost all areas of the economy translates into significantly lower production costs in many areas. This will continue to be an important factor in industry. As a result, graduates in computer engineering enjoy excellent career prospects. Their fields of employment include project planning, sales, service, manufacturing, product development as well as research and development.

Graduates have particularly good prospects in the following fields:

  • Development, conceptual design, programming, installation and maintenance of computer systems and computer networks
  • Development, programming and maintenance of large programme systems using methods of modern software technology
  • Development and programming of microprocessor-based regulation and control systems
  • Sales and service in the field of hard- and software

Programme structure

The seven-semester degree programme in Computer Engineering begins in the first year with the teaching of foundation courses, especially in mathematics, electrical engineering and computer science, as well as technical English. Specialisation begins in the 3rd semester. In the 4th semester the focus shifts to the development of technical competence. The curriculum places roughly equal emphasis on hardware (digital technology, microprocessor technology, computer networks, computer structures) and software (operating systems, software technology, databases).

Scientific and application-oriented aspects are equally represented. In the fifth semester you undertake a work placement, during which you will gain direct experience of the professional activities performed by an engineer. In parallel to the module that accompanies the work placement, business administration is integrated with a focus on corporate organisation, project management and principles of economic processes as well as business administration and management functions. An important component here is an introduction to the topic of occupational safety, as many students complete their work placement in industrial companies close to production. You acquire knowledge about organisational structures and operational processes in the company. Within the context of business games, you contemplate legal, social, cultural, financial and technical aspects of the respective company organisation.

Internationality

In the fifth (or optionally the sixth) semester, you study at a partner university abroad – THE opportunity to gain new insights and experiences, to get to know other people and cultures and to deepen your language skills! The HSB maintains numerous partnerships with many universities in Europe and worldwide. You can of course also ask for permission to look for a university abroad yourself. Our International Office will be happy to advise you.

Wherever you decide to go, you must successfully complete at least four modules, at least three of which are compulsory electives. In addition, you must also take the module Preparation and Follow-up Abroad, which consists of an online part and an attendance part (after your return) in the form of a seminar.
