Bachelor of Science

Digital Technologies (B.Sc.)

The bachelor's program provides competencies for successful digitization in industry, research and administration, which often takes place at the transition from computer science to the application area. The foundation of the study program are the subjects of computer science. In addition, they choose their individual application area already in the second semester. The knowledge from both areas is linked in the digitization projects. Here they work on practically relevant issues in each semester.

With a successful bachelor's degree in DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES, they receive a joint degree from both universities, which increases their career opportunities and also creates the prerequisites for the consecutive master's degree program in DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES.

Application-related specializations in technical IT areas

From the second semester of the program, they choose their individual application area: Autonomous Systems, Circular Economy and Environmental Technology, Digital Transformation, Energy Technology, Industry 4.0 and Mobility. In the course of their studies, the basic subjects of mathematics and computer science move increasingly into the background and they deepen the application areas, which come into focus more and more through the projects, among other things.

In addition to imparting theoretical knowledge, they take on a role in one of the practice-oriented digitization projects as early as the basic semester, which are closely linked to the content of the course and promote exchange with students from higher semesters. In the projects, the student teams are to jointly solve tasks from the application areas with digitization technologies. In doing so, the teams are put together in an interdisciplinary manner and also across semesters. This allows them to deepen the teaching content of the semester in a project context. For example, a second-semester student can take on simple programming tasks in such a team. A student in the fifth semester can be the project leader and thus deepen the content of project management.

The module study plan

From the following model study plan you will learn everything about the course and structure of the study.


The courses are predominantly offered in German. Isolated modules can be heard in English. In the 4th or 5th semester, they can complete a semester abroad at one of our international partner universities.

Application and admission

The bachelor's degree program DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES is a joint program of the Clausthal University of Technology and the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences. The application for one of the study places takes place directly via the application portal of the Ostfalia University. Admission to the study program takes place via the central allocation office.

All interested parties with a university entrance qualification can apply. Ideally, they should have a degree in one of the following fields: Computer Science, Engineering or Electrical Engineering.

If you have any questions or uncertainties, please contact the student advisors in good time or find out more here.
