Your study structure

The AKAD program " Digital Engineering and Applied Computer Science - Bachelor of Engineering " is divided into seven consecutive semesters. It is a further development of the degree program "Computer Engineering" accredited by ACQUIN (Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute) and approved by the State Central Office for Distance Learning (ZFU):

  • Preliminary Course Math (optional): With the free math upgrade, you can refresh your math skills for engineers if you wish - for a successful start to the first semester.
  • Semester 1: Your studies begin with the expansion of your methodical and self-competence and impart basic knowledge in computer science, electrical engineering, engineering-related mathematics, digital technology and the English language.
  • Semester 2: You will be familiarized with the programming in C / C, various operating and database systems as well as the formal methods of computer science and analysis.
  • Semester 3: Programming in Java and Computer Architecture are the topics of the third semester. As a computer scientist you master the technical mechanisms of data communication and computer networks. Also, you study computer networks in general and the Internet in particular. You also learn the basics of business administration.
  • Semester 4: Your studies continue with the latest know-how in image and data processing, dealing with microcontrollers, software programming and management as well as design patterns. You get all the information about digital communication and its manifestations.
  • Semester 5: They are dedicated to business processes and application systems, enterprise technologies and project and quality management. You can also choose your specialization from four attractive areas and thus shape your personal profile as a specialist in hardware design, computer security, information management or virtual reality.
  • Semester 6: In addition to advanced computer science English, C #, network and software security, games development, mobile computing, real-time systems, and data and knowledge management, you will independently solve a project assignment using the knowledge you have acquired so far Your specialization.
  • Semester 7: Your AKAD study course prepares you individually for your Bachelor's thesis and lets you target your graduation unerringly: with the independent completion of your Bachelor thesis and its defense in an oral examination (colloquium).

Your plus: Your personal microcontroller is included in this AKAD degree program. Integrate the Internet of Things into your daily life during your distance learning course - and at the same time learn how to reliably control sensors and actuators.
