Applied Computer Science


We live in a computerised world. No matter where we go or what we do, we are always surrounded by information technology. It’s in our smartphones and tablets, automobiles, coffee machines, robots and drones. With its many connections to other academic disciplines, computer science has an impact on all areas of life.

The undergraduate programme in Applied Computer Science at Ruhr West offers four exciting concentrations:

  • Artificial Intelligence – an interdisciplinary field dedicated to decoding human thinking to devise IT-based methods for solving problems involving artificial action, perception and cognition
  • Automotive – dedicated to developing software to assist with driving: intelligent sensor concepts, actuators and selected algorithms are used to develop innovative assistance systems and components
  • Smart Devices – dedicated to studying technical devices such as mobile phones, smart watches, beacons, and the like – devices that play an increasingly larger role in an interconnected world and have become a firm part of our daily lives
  • Systems Engineering – an interdisciplinary field combining IT and engineering management to devise, test and administer complex systems.

Real-world learning

Studying computer science at Ruhr West means hands-on learning inside and outside the classroom. Based on the university’s contacts to industry partners, students engage in real-world projects with actual companies to apply the theoretical knowledge they have acquired in lectures and seminars. In their final year, they complete a six-month work placement at one of Ruhr West’s partner companies. In addition to their technical training, students also acquire communication, presentation and teamwork skills to interact effectively with co-workers and clients.
