International Track in Computer Science

Single offer

The International Track in Computer Science, launched by the School of Engineering in the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Northwestern Switzerland, offers a range of computer science courses in English. The programme takes place over two semesters at all levels: basic, intermediate, and advanced. The aim of the programme is to help students discover the different careers, which exist in the information technology (IT) sector, and the skills required to become an expert in technology. 

Who is intended for?

On a bachelor level, the programme is intended for incoming students, who spend one or two exchange semesters at the FHNW School of Engineering but receive their degree from their home university. The study period abroad is also recognised by the home university of each student and is acknowledged on graduate diplomas. The training program can be completed over the course of 1 or 2 years (either full-time or part-time). Subjects covered include: programming, computer graphics, software construction, design patterns, e-solutions, web engineering, game design, digital marketing, project management, and many others.  

Structure of the course

The programme provides an opportunity for local students to study in English and improve their communication and networking skills throughout their study period. Students undertake project work for a period of one semester in conjunction with industry, and participating organisations include local Swiss companies and international entreprises throughout industrial sectors. Through this combined approach between theory and practice, the International Track in Computer Science provides a way for students to enhance their digital competences, tailored to their level, and supports the development of cultural awareness and language skills abroad.
