Computer Science and Telecommunications,
Full-time Programme

Whether you’re looking for games or trying to find up-to-date information, these days there’s a mobile app for nearly everything. Computer science and telecommunications experts are the ones bringing the world to your mobile phone. At the HfTL they learn all about processing, storing, and transmitting data in telecommunication systems, and how modern communication processes and systems work.
If you want to find out about social networks and applications, and which processes and technologies are needed to keep Web 2.0 running, then this is the programme for you. As students learn about the properties of different transmission media, the term “media” is a key area of this programme. There is a three-month project course where students can apply their mathematics, physics electrical and electronics engineering and IT knowledge while working in a company.

Employability and Careers

The networks between businesses and their suppliers, partners, and customers are expanding and becoming more complex, which is why they need experts such as software developers and system administrators. Are you interested in large networks and how they’re designed? As a student of computer science and telecommunications, you will learn how to plan, develop, and implement networks. As a systems architect or designer, you could also work in project management. Telekom is not the only company on the lookout for these experts, who are also in high demand at other information and telecommunication companies. Further promising career options include jobs in the energy sector and with car manufacturers, hardware and software companies, and in public services.
