This is the right place for you to study!

Applied Computer Science in Weingarten is the right degree programme for anyone who wants to study in southern Germany, between Munich, Stuttgart, Ulm, Constance and Zurich. The degree programme is located in Upper Swabia, in the heart of the Lake Constance region in Baden-Württemberg.

The region is excellent for computer scientists because many large, medium-sized and small companies employ our graduates here. Studying IT has a future.

Künstliche Intelligenz

Künstliche Intelligenz im Fokus

KI ist derzeit in aller Munde, seit der Chatbot ChatGPT des Unternehmens OpenAI 2022 mit seinem Sprachverständnis Nutzer aus aller Welt beeindruckte. Das Programm liefert Antworten auf Fragen statt wie eine Suchmaschine nur Links zu liefern. Vielfältige Einsatzmöglichkeiten sind auch im Bereich Softwareentwicklung sichtbar. So können Code-Fragmente in verschiedenen Programmiersprachen analysiert und erstellt werden, wobei hier an verschiedenen Stellen die Grenzen des Chatbots sichtbar werden. Klar ist, dass KI für Informatiker*innen in Zukunft ein wichtiges Tool sein wird, um den Softwarelebenszyklus zu meistern.

Im Studiengang Angewandte Informatik ist KI schon seit langem eine Thema, insbesondere durch das Institut für Künstliche Intelligenz (IKI), welches von Prof. Markus Schneider geleitet wird. Im Bachelor-Studiengang Angewandte Informatik lernen Studierende nicht nur die Grundlagen und Hintergründe künstlicher Intelligenz sondern auch die Anwendung zur Lösung praktischer Aufgabenstellungen im Bereich der Softwareentwicklung. Im Anschluss an das Studium haben Absolventen dann die Möglichkeit, im Master Informatik an der RWU in das Profil Künstliche Intelligenz einzusteigen und sich weiteres Wissen in diesem Bereich anzueignen.

Am 23.2.24 verabschiedet sich Prof. Wolfgang Ertel in den Ruhestand, der das Institut für Künstliche Intelligenz einst gegründet hat. In einer "Ruhestandsparty" werden neben offiziellen Reden des Rektors und Dekans zahlreiche weitere Weggefährten zum Thema "KI gestern, heute und morgen" zu Wort kommen. Von "KI: Künstliche Ignoranz" über "Kreative Bildgenerierung mit KI" bis hin zu "20+ Jahre Servicerobotik" werden dabei zahlreiche interessante Themen gestreift.

One degree programme - two fields of study

At RWU you will become a computer scientist with a solid education. In the main course you can choose a specialisation:

Games profile

Here students are introduced to the technologies behind the creation of games/AR/VR applications, as well as computer-generated effects in films.
Our graduates are in great demand and work for game development companies such as Daedalic or Blue Byte or have set up their own businesses. The market is booming - also in Baden-Württemberg. Graduates also work in core development at Unity.

Profile Robotics & Smart Devices

Intelligent algorithms and systems capable of learning are developed at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at RWU. Deep Learning is a focus of research. Applications range from service robotics and nursing to image processing and object recognition to adaptive diagnosis of machines. Students can take part in competitions as part of Robocup@home.

STUDY COUNSELLING

Online study counselling: You have questions about studying, and wonder if you are suitable and what to expect? You want to know what you can do with your degree later?

Firefox and Chrome work best for this.

Taster: Contact Jonas if you would like to attend a lecture. You can have a taster session during the semester from 13 March to 30 June and then again from 4 October.

Looking to the future

Computer Science Night - Our teaching goes beyond the lecture hall.

We regularly share our knowledge and invite the region to exchange ideas. For this purpose, there is the Night of Computer Science.

Applications such as service robots, smart homes or robot taxis will greatly change our lives in just a few years. At the Computer Science Night, RWU takes a look into the future: What will happen with artificial intelligence? Will robots develop feelings and consciousness? Will robots be smarter than us humans?

Professor Dr. Wolfgang Ertel cannot answer all these questions in his lecture at the Night of Computer Science, but he will give his assessments from an expert's point of view and show how important it is to steer the development of artificial intelligence in the right direction. Ertel is head of the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at RWU and his areas of expertise are machine learning and robots capable of learning.

Top-class lectures

Several speakers will provide exciting insights into the world of computer science. From "Digital Fabrication" to "Augmented Reality(AR)" and "Physical Computing", exciting lectures can be expected every time. Even those who are interested in computer science can see here what is possible through technology.

Students present their projects

Exciting projects by students from the fields of computer science and design will be presented in the foyer throughout the evening.

Who receives a place at the university?

All applicants who meet the admission requirements will receive an offer of admission.

Selection procedure - how is the overall grade calculated?

At RWU, the following regulations apply to this degree program Admission and Selection Statutes for Bachelor's degree programs and is carried out on the basis of the application documents. The preparation of a proposal list or ranking list is explained below: The applicant's position on a ranking list is determined from the application documents according to the following procedure: Calculation of a weighted overall grade according to the formula
[(average grade of university entrance qualification)+(grades German, Mathematics * 2 and continued modern foreign language)/4] / 2

If there are more applicants than places, 90% of the places are awarded by the selection procedure (best overall grade) and 10% of the places are awarded by waiting period.

Improvements in the overall grade

This overall grade can be improved if one or more of the following qualifications are proven:

  • Completed vocational training in the field of computer science or information and communication technology: 0.3
  • Professional activity in the training occupation of at least 1 year: 0.2. This bonus is limited to 0.2.

Extracurricular achievements, pract. Extracurricular achievements, practicalactivities and recognised prior experience: 0.1 per qualification, max. 2 qualifications can be credited:

  • Successful participation in competitions or AGs in the field of computer science, mathematics or robotics.
  • Own development projects
  • Relevant work placement, at least 8 weeks
  • Social commitment

Move-up procedure

Prospective students often apply to several universities and degree programmes. As a result, places regularly become available again because an applicant decides to take up another course. These vacant places are then allocated to those who did not make it in the first place. Places are again awarded according to the ranking list, i.e. first to those with the best overall grade.

You can find further information on the application and the allocation of places at the Admissions Office.
