Information, information gain, information transfer, and the ability to process huge amounts of data (big data) make up the operational factor information space, which is crucial in the economy and in the military field. In this space, it is necessary to develop projections, to gain insights, to act with little delay and reliably and to effectively counteract the damage caused by IT attacks. The tools are computer networks and distributed applications. Computer science engineering is a degree program in the field of applied computer science. It includes the engineering sciences of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering as applications with a focus on IT management and IT security. The degree program is divided into the subdivisions structure of IT systems, application of IT systems, management of IT systems as well as engineering fundamentals, which are taken over from the bachelor program of electrical engineering.
In the area of ​​computing system structures, the areas of computer architecture, computer technology and computer networks are covered. The application of IT systems ranges from the ability to programming in a high-level programming language (eg C) to software engineering, operating systems and databases to cryptography. The management of IT systems deals with the administrative part of operating systems and computer networks, as well as the structures, roles and processes in a modern data center. For this purpose, an internship is offered to set up and operate a computer center. All sections are considered under the particular aspect of IT security.
