We shape the industry of tomorrow

In coordination with other higher education institutions, CAMPUS 02 has always placed a strong emphasis on connecting work and study — a distinctive feature that sets CAMPUS 02 apart from other higher education institutions. Through the Degree Programmes in IT & Business Informatics and their focus on software engineering, CAMPUS 02 has offered the following degree programmes in Graz: An extra-occupational Bachelor’s since 2006, an extra-occupational Master’s since 2008 (formerly a diploma degree programme from 2000 to 2006) and a cooperative Bachelor’s in Business Software Development since 2018.

The university of applied sciences Bachelor’s in Business Data Science contributes to meeting the increasing demand for informaticians on the labour market in a sustainable manner. The Bachelor’s provides training in software and web development, data and information visualisation and data science in particular. In addition, a highly business-centred approach is used in all course units to make the knowledge and skills conveyed especially practice-relevant.

The work-friendly full-time organisational form of the Bachelor’s offers students who do not aim to enter the labour market straight away a smooth transition to work life. Its special organisational form permits professional activities through the combination of intensive weeks at the beginning of the semester and attendance-based days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) during the semester.

To gain international experience, students can choose to study their fourth semester abroad at the University of Zagreb. As of the fifth semester, students do an internship, write Bachelor’s theses at and in cooperation with businesses and work on practice-relevant assignments provided by partners from the industry.

A unique mode of study

To study or not to study? To work or not to work? The unique organisation of this Bachelor degree programme makes both study and work possible! Students can directly apply the knowledge and skills they acquire in the lecture hall in every-day professional practice and gain added value through the combination of training, work and academic environments.

Fit for the future

With a degree in data science, graduates are fit for future challenges in business. With their ability to transform data into success-relevant information, they contribute to the success of businesses in all sectors.

Soft Skills

Students develop personal skills throughout the degree programme in course units, such as Innovation Management & Creativity Methods, Communication & Time Management, Rhetorical & Presentation Skills and Business English.

Career opportunities

Having the freedom of choice after graduating has many advantages. Business informaticians can work in a number of different sectors ranging from IT services and consulting to banking and insurance, from logistics, telecommunications and business consulting to trade and production.

In this degree programme, students learn how to effectively and efficiently support business processes. The tasks of a business informatician include coordinating network technologies and databases for services or production, or project and process management within the scope of software engineering or internet technologies. In addition, internal and external information system management as well as expertise in economic fields, such as marketing, sales and business administration form an integral part of this job profile.
