Become the software expert of tomorrow
Software is eating the world ...
... said Netscape inventor and Silicon Valley investor Marc Andreessen back in 2011. This statement is becoming even more relevant in today's connected Society.
The development of new technologies and business models opens up new opportunities for companies in areas such as product development and new markets. The digitalisation of our economy and society leads to a demand in experts who master software, the driver and transforming force of digitalisation.
Software is everywhere - in smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, notebooks, PCs and controllers. It also plays a significant role in the transformation of a classic organisation into a digital organisation: digital products, digital processes, digital infrastructures and digital business models are based on software.
The demand for software developers is huge. Companies have a considerable need for experts who can develop sophisticated software solutions and master the handling of complex software systems.
