The interdisciplinary Applied Computer Science degree programme combines practice-oriented core computer science with content from the profile-defining areas of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. Students learn how to analyse, model, design and evaluate complex and networked systems of practical relevance using the methods of applied computer science. Interesting systems can be found especially in the integrated application subjects of geography, materials, energy, environment, technology and economics. The focus on applications in the TU Bergakademie Freiberg's profile lines clearly distinguishes this degree programme from courses of the same name at other universities.
The Bachelor's degree programme provides a comprehensive understanding of applied computer science, supplemented by practical, theoretical and technical computer science - including algorithms and data structures, development of software systems and information and communication technologies. The fundamentals of engineering mathematics to the necessary extent and intensive familiarisation with an application subject lead to an excellent professional qualification: the design and implementation of modern information and communication systems are the key qualifications that are in high demand in all industries.
Based on other core computer science topics - including distributed software, artificial intelligence, computer graphics - the Master's degree programme offers an in-depth scientific qualification, particularly in the fields of virtual reality, high-performance computing and complex IT systems and artificial intelligence.
This puts graduates in a position to advance into areas, especially in the integrated application subjects, that will determine future technical and scientific development to a large extent.

Graduates have a wide range of employment opportunities in all areas of business, science and administration. In addition to more typical information technology fields such as
- software and consulting firms,
- IT manufacturers,
- insurance companies,
- service providers of all kinds,
they can also be found in
- the basic materials and automotive industries due to the application profile,
- the manufacturing industry and
- utility companies
and support them on their way to future-orientated systemic solutions.
