  • to take in information, ideas, problems and solutions of others and to pass them on jointly.

Graduates have also developed an individual subject-specific competence profile (for example in electromobility or mobile robotics) within the framework of selectable modules.

Together with our cooperation partners at the Cyber Campus (the Faculty of Economics of the HSNR and the Faculty of Informatics of the H-BRS), we offer the Cyber Security Management and Digital Forensics degree programmes, which are geared towards the challenges in the field of IT security.

Programme objectives B.Sc. Digital Forensics

The Degree programme aims to enable its graduates to,

  • Understand the foundation courses, structure, and operation of components that play a role in digital forensics, such as computers, networks, system software, and applications, and explain their importance to forensic processes,
  • Understand and apply concepts and principles of cybersecurity and digital forensics, and differentiate between different types of cybercrime such as hacker attacks, malware infections, or data leaks,
  • Evaluate IT crime in terms of evidence and fraud and know relevant process flows, especially from the field of cybercrime,
  • identify IT security threats and plan appropriate responses to cyber attacks (incident response), convincingly justifying the correctness, security, and appropriateness of a solution they propose,
  • identify attacks on IT systems, analyze them, and develop and apply appropriate forensic procedures,
  • secure, capture, examine, analyze, document, and present digital evidence using scientific methods and technologies while adhering to legal and ethical principles and making professional use of forensic tools,

You must register for examinations within the specified deadlines via the university's online service. After that, registration is no longer possible!

You should also find out whether you are admitted to the registered examinations without reservation. You can also use the online service for this purpose. If in doubt, please contact the examination office in good time. If it is determined on the examination date that you are not admitted or that there is a reservation, you will not be allowed to take part in this examination.

Up to one week before the examination date, you can withdraw your registration for the examination without giving reasons via online service.

If you wish to withdraw from a registered examination for reasons of illness, you must provide evidence of your withdrawal by means of a separate medical certificate. It must be in accordance with the form provided by the Student Services Department, certifying that you are unable to take the examination. Otherwise, in accordance with the examination regulations, your non-attendance will be counted as a failed attempt, see also “Withdrawal from examinations” below.
