Bachelor in Technical Computer Science
University of Twente - Twente Pathway College
Earliest start date
Are you fascinated by computers, the science behind them, and what you can do with them? Do you enjoy programming, or are you eager to get started with it? Would you like to study computer science while also gaining expertise in other essential fields, such as electrical engineering or business information technology? Do you see yourself becoming a technical computer scientist committed to societal improvements, for example, in healthcare, finance, or the environment? If so, our three-year, English-taught Bachelor’s Technical Computer Science (TCS) is the right choice for you.
Technical Computer Science – the name says it – combines in-depth computer science with broad technical insight. This programme will help you understand the devices, services, and processes that people, companies, and organisations need to exchange, process, store information, and work towards a better society. You will spend a lot of time programming in this bachelor’s, so it is important that you have an affinity with it and that you know it suits you – or are pretty sure it will. And, the better you are at mathematics, the more successful you will be at programming. We will teach you to think like a computer scientist, distinguishing clearly and sharply what goes well and what goes wrong, and what can be improved between all the separate links a computer system is made of. At the same time, you will become an engineer, capable of applying the basic computer knowledge you acquire in virtually every area of life: from transport to business, from politics to leisure.
