General academic competences

The general academic competences relate to the following areas:

  1. System development
  2. Research
  3. Communication
  4. Orientation and reflection

In relation to the above competences, a bachelor's graduate is able to:

1. System Development

  • describe and select methods for system development;
  • solve system development problems at a basic level.

You are able to think of a suitable application for a given situation and identify the necessary requirements for such a system, design the system and justify this design. You are also able to build it (together with others) and evaluate its functional correctness and usability. Finally, you are able to provide written documentation for the end product.

2. Research

  • recognize and select research methods (both generic as well as specific to the field of computing science);
  • solve research questions at a basic level.
In particular, this means that you are able to identify a relevant problem, and define and justify the appropriate research question in relation to this problem. You are able to select and describe a suitable theoretical framework, and justify the choice of this framework in relation to the problem to be solved. Finally, you are able to conduct the proposed research and report and present its results.

3. Communication

  • present subject-specific information at a basic level in a clear manner to colleagues (both in oral and written form);
  • document solutions.

In the case of collaboration with others, you are able to fulfil various roles, such as leading discussions, active and open listening and exchanging opinions with others.

4. Orientation and reflection

  • for problems at basic level, indicate relevant areas in computing science and recognize their contributions, and
  • specify characteristic functions, roles, activities and competences of computer scientists in the professional field.

You are able to reflect on your own role as a junior scientist, and participate in debates about the social implications of developments from our own field. In relation to your personal development, you are able to make a reasoned choice for a specific follow-up education or career start.
