Help shape digitization!

Lehre im Masterstudiengang Angewandte Informatik – dual

Artificial intelligence, networked systems across all platforms and end devices, the merging of the real and virtual worlds, sustainability and, of course, cyber security in all its facets. No matter which relevant organizations you ask, these topics will (continue to) define key aspects of enterprise digitization in the coming years. The Corona pandemic has also once again brought "momentum" into corresponding initiatives and, above all, has also shown where the digital transformation, which has been much vaunted for years, still only means that the field service is equipped with tablets. But designing and developing systems together with users in such a way that they actually solve the challenges they are supposed to solve and, last but not least, that they are used with pleasure, requires people who understand their craft. And they are desperately needed.

The 3-semester dual master's program in Applied Computer Science at Worms University of Applied Sciences offers you current topics at the pulse of the "digital age" with a high level of practical relevance and a constant focus on the human factor. Content such as artificial intelligence, digitalization & sustainability or agile software development will make you more than just interesting for your employer, who will help make this study program possible for you as a cooperating company. Building on your bachelor's degree in computer science or a comparable subject, your master's degree will provide you with the specialist expertise in mobile computing, networks & security, or interaction & visualization that is in demand everywhere in the context of digitalization.

Dual study and work at the same time

With the dual master's program in Applied Computer Science at Worms University of Applied Sciences, you are opting for an academic course of study in which theory and practice are closely intertwined. For the dual study program, you need a contract with a partner company. You will work there (at least) during the lecture-free period and can put into practice what you have learned in your studies. Individual exams as well as the master's thesis are completed in cooperation with "your" company. The alternation between theoretical and practical phases of the studies enables you to continue to be active with your employer in the best possible way and at the same time prepares you for your further career in the company.

Computer science is women's business. Also!

Of course, computer science is not just a women's issue. But it is more than it might seem at first glance. And it has infinite facets that go far beyond pure programming. Digitization is "people's business" because application systems are designed and developed by people for people. And in order to understand what the user needs, you have to understand their point of view as well as master the tools and methods on the IT side with which the desired application is to be implemented. 

The job description of a graduate of Applied Computer Science with one of the possible qualification focuses is multifaceted and ranges from developer, software architect, consultant, project manager to CEO. You decide where your path takes you. We "merely" offer you to take the next step on this path together with us.
