Computer Science and Telecommunications,
Part-time Programme

This part-time programme offers professionals with a university entrance qualification the opportunity of gaining

further training. Most of the work is done via an online learning platform, allowing you more flexibility in balancing academics and work. We support effective learning of mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, information technology and communications contents by combining attendance periods at the HfT Leipzig with online tutorials.

You will gain a deeper understanding of all aspects of the technology of the new media. This is a programme aimed at those who wish to learn about what IT-principles and technologies Web 2.0 is based on and how social networks and applications work. The term “media” is a defining area of this programme, as students learn about the properties of different transmission media.

Employability and Careers

There is a high demand for IT professionals in all areas. The following are just a few examples of potential careers. As networks between businesses and their suppliers, customers, and partners become ever more important, increasingly complex IT environments are being created. These are designed and managed by system and network administrators in charge of ensuring that their internet-based services, such as web portals, are available at all times. Graduates also develop software, creating IT solutions such as applications for desktop PCs, smartphones, or web browser applications while taking into consideration the latest quality and safety standards. System architects develop networks for entire companies and are pushing forward the development of the global broadband network. Consultants provide customers with advice on IT projects.
