Bridging course "Foundation of Informatics"

This course is a course on the foundations in theoretical computer science and might be mandatory to you. Please check your admission letter, to see if it is mentioned there. If not, you are not required to take it. However, we strongly encourage all students to participate since it covers all necessary theoretical topics required in many elective courses.

The course is held in a blended learning format. It is structured in two blocks of each two weeks. The first block is completely online and can be done in a self-paced manner. Please checkout the course webpage for more details and register to its mailing list and online course room:

Course "Technical Writing"

This course is a mandatory course offered as a block course (5 days).

It is offered starting March 21st, 2022. It will take place online via Zoom. Please register in RWTHonline (LV KP00009).

Summer Semester 2022

Here is a preliminary timetable for classes offered at b-it (virtual or in-person): here

Compulsory modules

In summer semesters, we usually offer two compulsory modules of the Media Informatics program:

  • Foundations of Data Science (Compulsory Modules; 8 ECTS; Nuesken; online flipped classroom teaching; register in RWTH and more information here)

Two other compulsory modules are offered every winter semester:

  • Designing Interactive Systems I (next time offered in Winter 2022/23)
  • Introduction to Computer Graphics (next time offered in Winter 2022/23)
Compulsory module component / online learning unit

For all students enrolled in Winter 2020 or later, as prerequisite to thesis registration, you need to pass an online learning unit "Scientific Integrity". This is a central course offer by RWTH. It is offered every semester.

Elective courses at b-it & Uni Bonn

This list includes all courses at b-it and many courses from Uni Bonn (that are listed for MI). This list may not be complete. If you are interested in any elective course from the CS department at Uni Bonn (e.g. for courses in the CCT area) please contact msc-mi@b-it-center.de.
