Are you interested in programming systems such as a robotic lawnmower, smart thermostat, robots, or self-piloting drones? As a student in the Applied Computer Science programme from Saxion University of Applied Sciences you will be working on the latest solutions. 


Key facts

All the lessons in the Applied Computer Science programme from Saxion University of Applied Sciences are taught in English, and you will also work alongside students with 25 other nationalities. 

Option Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The first year of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Applied Computer Science are virtually the same. And if you find that you like designing and building hardware more than programming? Then you can switch to Electrical and Electronic Engineering.


You get to know your fellow students and teachers quickly! Moreover, the practical lessons are given in small groups, so there is plenty of one-on-one interaction.

During your study

The combination of hardware, such as sensors and microcontrollers, and software, such as C++ and Java, forms the core of your Applied Computer Science programme. You will discover what real-time embedded systems are, and you will learn all about automating and controlling processes. What it all comes down to is ensuring that all the devices are programmed correctly so they function properly.

Career prospects

On completion of the programme you will be awarded the Applied Computer Science degree and you may then use the BSc degree title. You can work for a wide range of companies as a software and hardware designer, programmer, or developer.
