More about the course

The interdisciplinary bachelor's degree program in media informatics combines the content of a classic computer science degree (practical, technical and theoretical computer science as well as mathematics) with design and multimedia content. You will learn the important basics in lectures in particular and then discuss, use and deepen these in supervised exercises, practice-oriented laboratories, interactive seminars, research-oriented group projects and the scientific bachelor thesis. Here you give free rein to your ideas and work, for example, with 3D printers, drones, frameworks, games, artificial intelligence, robots, social media, user experience tools, VR glasses and websites.
