Digitalization - the magic word of the 21st century in all areas of life - needs skilled workers. These specialists must have a mainstay in computer science or business informatics, but they also have to be familiar with the processes they are supposed to digitize - everything whole cominded with a shot of creativity. Only the interaction of knowledge from all three areas makes it possible to rethink processes with digital technologies. Who wouldn't be delighted if the furniture delivery was not announced sometime between 8 and 2 p.m., but between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m.? Or if citizens could conduct all their interactions with public administration online ...

With the master's degree program Digital Processes and Technologies you will learn how processes can be digitized and modernized efficiently, securely and sustainably on the basis of a course of study with solid business and computer science content. In your later professional life, you will be able to work in or lead complex digitization projects.

Enrollment is possible for the first time for the summer semester 2021. The application period is expected to start in mid-November. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the application deadline has been extended to 15.12.2020.
