Bachelor in Computer Science


The Bachelor in Computer Science (BICS) aims at bringing the theoretical and practical skills needed to successfully pursue studies in a Master programme related to Computer Science at the University of Luxembourg or any other world-class university or school. It also represents one of the best steps for students who wish to become teachers. In addition, the programme will provide the bases on the three following main dimensions:

  • Creativity: capacity to generate new ideas
  • Science: precise knowledge determined using observations, experimentations, reasonings and expressions
  • Digital technologies: concrete means which rely on electronic devices and used to process information


At the end of the programme, the student is able to:

  • understand the theoretical and methodological foundations of informatics
  • understand the most important aspects of informatics, including algorithms and data structures, theoretical informatics, programming, information management, modelling and analysis, and are able to apply this knowledge
  • apply a number of methodologies in mathematics and statistics to computer problems
  • master general academic skills, in particular in the field of informatics
  • formulate a practical computer problem as a clear and concise research question and apply knowledge and skills to formulate and analyze possible solutions
  • integrate social, ethical, legal, psychological and contextual factors related to computer discipline
  • communicate and transmit information, concepts and solutions to an audience of specialists and non-specialists, and work as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • pursue a master's degree programme
  • demonstrate an independent and critical mind, and acquire new knowledge in the field of informatics
