Module contents

The ongoing process of globalization requires preparation for professional
for professional activities that are increasingly internationally oriented.
This requires not only foreign language skills, but also intercultural skills in particular.
These skills are intensively promoted during a semester abroad.
As courses at the host university can also relate to areas of knowledge that are not included in the Computer Science curriculum or are outside of Computer Science, such coursework completed in the host country can be credited via this module.
The choice of courses at the host university is agreed in advance of the stay as part of a learning agreement with the student advisor or, depending on the requirements of the place of study and the study financing, with the international representatives of the Department of Computer Science.
