General Introduction

Jacobs University offers study programs according to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured along the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year undergraduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits. The curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme – the 3C Model – which groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:

The first study year is characterized by a broad offer in disciplinary and interdisciplinary education. Students select three CHOICE modules from a variety of study programs.

In the second year, students take three in-depth, discipline-specific CORE modules. One CORE module can also be taken from a second, complementary discipline, which allows students to incorporate a minor study track into their undergraduate education.

In the fifth semester, the World Track provides students either with an extended internship or a study abroad opportunity at a partner university. Students may also opt to stay on campus and continue their undergraduate education, where they select specialization courses within their study program and pursue a project/research module including the Bachelor thesis.

Major Overview

Computer Science lies at the core of all modern industries, as computer systems and information technology underlie almost all of today’s production processes. Computer technology changes constantly but there are a number of fundamental principles underlying these technologies.

The Computer Science program at Jacobs University focuses on the understanding of these principles and their application in practice. In addition to courses dealing with core competencies (programming, software engineering, foundations of computer science), you will be covering mathematics (calculus, linear algebra and statistics) and take courses in engineering and sciences whilst also conducting guided research.


Careers in a wide range of industries such as internet and mobile technology, software and classic IT consultancy services; as a games developer, multimedia programmer, computer graphics designer, web designer and a systems analyst.

The Jacobs Track

The Jacobs Track is an essential element of Jacobs University’s educational concept. It fosters employability, transdisciplinarity, and internationality across all study programs. All students have to take modules offered within the Jacobs Track. The transdisciplinary triangle models offer courses from the areas business, technology, and societal context. Mathematics and statistics courses are offered within a methods module and foreign languages are provided within the language module.
