Computer Science and Telecommunications Co-operative Bachelor’s Programme

Computer Science and Telecommunications – Co-operative Programme

The HfTL’s co-operative bachelor’s programme Computer Science and Telecommunications offers students the opportunity of earning a first degree while starting a career at Deutsche Telekom. The university works in close cooperation with the company, allowing students to learn in both environments. Attendance periods in classrooms are combined with learning from home via online classes. The Deutsche Telekom AG ensures that the theoretical knowledge taught in subjects such as mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, is applied to practical tasks within the company. 

Employability and Careers

Practically everywhere you look, information is being processed, stored, and transferred, which is precisely what students learn to do at the HfTL. Our graduates therefore work in many different areas. Systems and network specialists, for example, build and run large IT environments and make sure that web-based customer services are available around the clock. After all, internet portals must remain accessible at all times. Another option is to become a software developer and create applications for web browsers, desktop, and mobile devices. Systems architects maintain the overview of projects where web-based applications are being developed or managed, e.g. shop solutions, search engines, or communication and planning tools. Network architects design and run large corporate networks and promote the increase of global broadband availability. Our graduates also work as consultants for major IT projects.

There are many options available to computer science and telecommunication specialists. The choice is yours.
