This degree course is designed for students, who have previously worked in the IT sector. This experience can be recognized and acknowledged, reducing the the length of the degree from 10 semesters to 7, allowing students to gain a job-concurrent German Diplom in Informatics in just three and a half years.

Hardly anyone today could imagine life without computers. Software can be found almost everywhere, from washing machines to televisions and has a part to play in almost every area of daily life. There is therefore the need for complex software and, of course, people who are able to develop such systems. However, it is not enough to have software only capable of completing the task at hand; rather the software has to be quick, reliable and easy-to-use, all of which place high demands on the developer.

The job-concurrent degree rises to this challenge, by making it possible for students to attain an academic degree alongside putting the theoretical skills into practice in a work environment. The high level of qualification achieved helps improve chances of company promotion and makes the student more attractive to future employers.
