THE TEACHING STAFF
The majority of modules will be taught by professors coming from the University of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt/Main, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, and the Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Sciences GERMANY. Additionally, to ensure the teaching quality and support, students are also attended by VGU’s experienced Vietnamese tutors. Experienced Vietnamese lecturers who graduated abroad will also be appointed for fundamental subjects (Mathematics and Physics).
English language lessons are mostly taught by native English teachers.
THE BACHELOR PROGRAM
The first two semesters will provide the students with solid mathematical foundation and an introduction into the principals of computer science, where the topics in advanced Mathematics are additionally applicable in many engineering areas. Fundamentals of modern computer architectures are investigated together with algorithms and data-structures required solving IT problems efficiently. The traditional and wide-spread computer language 'C' is introduced and complemented by today's object oriented languages C++ and Java.
These two semesters will lead the students into a variety of IT topics. Software engineering analysis and design principals will be taught and contemplated with a lot of programming exercises. The technical backgrounds and applications of databases and in particular networks will be examined with in-depth lab exercises using contemporary hardware components. General operating systems, as well as real-time systems running on embedded systems are introduced with hands-on studies. Considering a world of networks, we additionally focus on distributed systems and do not forget about IT Security.
Through ongoing project works, students will acquire skills in teamwork, negotiations, presentations and are prepared for a dynamic working environment.
Being equipped with the knowledge gathered in the first four semesters, here the students are provided some freedom to realize IT projects in the lab in order to be able to apply the learned approaches systematically. In order to substantiate the scientific education, we discuss in projects contemporary subjects of computer science and in addition enhance the knowledge of IT Security with the required legal issues. Additional room is left for interdisciplinary issues 'Studium Generale'.
This semester is packed with projects, internship in companies and the bachelor’s thesis. The students will have to apply their hard and soft skills in a blended way to solve practical problems and in real-world situations. In the thesis, students are expected to demonstrate sufficient proficiency in technical and interdisciplinary topics to work as an engineer.
The following table of modules gives a general overview of the modules offered in this program. Many of these modules will be taught as block seminars of two to four weeks in duration.
