Specialized focus "Algorithmics

Contents of the technical focus "Algorithmics

Algorithms are responsible for the results of an Internet search. Algorithms determine how we get from one place to another quickly. Algorithms encrypt emails and ensure secure communication on the Internet. Algorithms allow us to extract the information we want from large amounts of data.

Algorithms work at the heart of all computer programs and are thus relevant to all subfields of computer science. If you choose the specialization "Algorithmics", you will be well prepared for many professional tasks in development, research and science.
