Bachelor of Science (BSc)
You want to help shape our future, but wonder how? With the study of computer science you decide for an exciting education, for progress and further development of information and communication technologies (ICT). Perhaps you will soon make an important contribution to society or individuals through your knowledge and developments.
At TU Wien, you will receive a high-quality education in all fundamentals of computer science and will be taught by internationally recognized researchers.
Starting with the winter semester 2023, there will be a new Bachelor's Programme Informatics with seven specializations.
The studies Media Informatics and Visual Computing, Medical Informatics and Software & Information Engineering will no longer be offered to new students.
It is important to us that everyone who is interested in Informatics can study with us - regardless of their educational background. Therefore, during the application process, we do not test programming or Computer Science skills, nor do we expect you to have experience with computers. Instead, we test your ability to solve problems, think logically and understand texts. The application process takes place only once a year, regardless of whether you want to start in the winter or summer semester.
For the latest information, please visit the Admission Procedures page.
As an extension of a regular Bachelor's Programme in Computer Science and Business Informatics, students with outstanding academic performance can earn a Bachelor's Degree with Honors based on the Anglo-American model. The goal of the Honors Program is to provide individual support to particularly talented students and to inspire them to pursue scientific research at an early stage. Students do not begin their Bachelor's with Honors degree in their first semester. Students with excellent academic records may apply for admission to the Bachelor with Honors program after their third semester.
The Bachelor's with Honors degree requires 45 to 60 ECTS of additional coursework. Students create an individual honors programme in consultation with a mentor.
Graduates not only receive a certificate of completion, but also a personal letter of recommendation signed by the Rector confirming that he/she is one of the top students at TU Wien.
After completeing your Bachelor's Programme at TU Wien, you can enroll in one of the following Master's Programmes:
You can find more information about our Master's Programmes on the site Master's Programmes Computer Science and Business Informatics.
The Bachelor's Programmes Media Informatics and Visual Computing, Medical Informatics and Software & Information Engineering will no longer be offered to new students as of the winter semester 2023.
The Bachelor's Programme Media Informatics and Visual Computing combines the teaching of technologies and methods in the fields of computer vision, computer graphics, visualization and augmented/mixed/virtual reality with education in the design of innovative interfaces.
In the programme, students learn design technology, mathematical and formal foundations. In addition to a critical understanding of the theories and principles of computer science, the course offers theoretical basics and practical applications of design thinking and design practice. Social, cognitive and cultural foundations complement the holistic course offerings. Furthermore, dealing with the issues of media informatics requires an interdisciplinary basic education, which also includes knowledge and skills for the creative and applied design of media and their production processes.
The Bachelor's Programme in Medical Informatics combines the teaching of technologies and processes in areas such as life sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), software and requirements engineering, IT planning and IT operations, data protection and process engineering with education in basic medical principles. The program based on information technology, medical, mathematical and formal foundations. In addition, dealing with the issues of medical informatics requires an interdisciplinary basic education, which also includes knowledge and skills in clinical thinking such as diagnostic processes and documentation.
Software Engineering deals with the development of software, from analysis, design and implementation to quality assurance and maintenance. Information Engineering deals with the generation, collection, processing, distribution and presentation of information. Based on scientific principles and methods, the Bachelor's Programme Software & Information Engineering links the entire process of software development with the transfer of knowledge in the field of information processing.
If you start one of the expiring Bachelor's Programmes Media Informatics and Visual Computing, Medical Informatics or Software and Information Engineering up to and including the summer semester 2023, you have the choice to either complete this programme in the following five years, or to switch to the new Bachelor's Programme Informatics starting in the winter semester 2023.
Please contact the Admission Office of the TU Wien for this purpose.
