IT-Engineering (B.Sc.)

Study information

IT engineers and technical computer scientists develop and operate so-called intelligent systems. These require powerful microcontroller units with network connections, sensors and actuators, as well as software that controls all hardware components and communicates with other control systems. Often, these systems perform their service invisibly in the background. Increasingly, as "cyber-physical" systems, they no longer work completely autonomously, but outsource parts of the functionality to a server infrastructure. 

The design and operation of such complex systems require interdisciplinary knowledge at the interface of engineering and computer science. With this study program, NORDAKADEMIE closes the gap and prepares you for the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

You will gain extensive expertise in digital technology, computer architecture, networks, hardware-related software development, software engineering and architecture, modeling and software quality. You will also acquire key competencies in infrastructure systems and IT security.

In the elective area you can focus on various industries, e.g. in these areas:

  • Medical Technology
  • Power engineering
  • Automotive industry
  • Information and communication technology
  • Aerospace
  • Environmental technology
  • Traffic engineering

Thanks to the dual system, the content of your study program is closely linked to the requirements of your training company.

Please note that the curriculum is in German, as a C1 level is required to study at NORDAKADEMIE.
