Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Applied Information Technology

Students can select from two fields of study: Information systems and Environmental and Geoinformatics Both of these fields are application-oriented, and if possible students complete their thesis at a company or in a public agency.

The field of information systems / business IT systems addresses personnel needs of IT departments at small and mid-sized companies. Students are trained in the areas of basic infrastructure (such as networks, servers, support), information systems, software development, security and IT administration and law, in addition to the general canon of core information technology subjects.

The environmental and geoinformatics field offers practical, interdisciplinary training that integrates environmental aspects consistently into the degree program right from the start. Topic areas from landscape architecture and environmental engineering also supplement IT-specific content. To ensure students can get a successful start on their professional lives, they also learn about business administration and project management.


Graduates in the fields of information systems enjoy career prospects in the IT departments at small and mid-sized companies, in developing and modifying software solutions for business customers, and in advising businesses to help them design their information technology infrastructure. 

Graduates in the field of environmental and geoinformatics can take advantage of professional opportunities in typical information technology fields, as well as in developing and modifying software solutions for technical and planning environmental protection, building and administering environmental and geoinformation systems, and model development for process, system and environmental simulations.
