Applied Information Technology.

The School of IT and Digital Innovation offers an English-taught curriculum and attracts high numbers of exchange students from its many European partner institutions.

This international curriculum is open for Applied Information Technology and Computer Science students. The programme includes a wide range of subjects such as Artificial Intelligence, Application and Web Development, System Engineering, Databases, Data Analysis, the Mainframe world and cross-cultural topics. We ask the students to have a detailed look at the prerequisites.

Without a doubt, the added value of an international experience cannot be underestimated. Since courses are taught in English, we require the students to have a good command of the English language (B2 level is advised).
