Absolventen berichten

Das Institut für Informatik, Informations- und Medientechnik pflegt engen Kontakt zu seinen Absolventen. Regelmäßig werden Alumni-Treffen veranstaltet, bei denen Absolventen über ihren weiteren Werdegang berichten.

Bisherige Absolventen der BTU sind in großen internationalen und nationalen Firmen, vielen mittelständischen Unternehmen und Wissenschaftsinstituten beschäftigt. Berufliche Einsatzfelder sind insbesondere Forschung und Entwicklung in der Informatik und ihren Anwendungen. Hierzu zählen zum Beispiel Mikroprozessor und Chip-Design, sowie Entwicklung und Testen von Steuerungssystemen in der Luft- und Raumfahrt und Fahrzeugindustrie. Weitere Tätigkeitsfelder sind unter anderem Kommunikationssysteme, Netzwerksicherheit und Softwareanalyse, Organisation und Durchführung von IT-Projekten, Consulting und Systemberatung.

Absolventen der Informatik trugen auch maßgeblich zu Ausgründungen und Firmenansiedlungen in der Region bei. Diese Spin-Offs der BTU bieten vielfältige Einstiegsmöglichkeiten.

Gut die Hälfte unserer Absolventen bleiben in der Region Brandenburg, Berlin, und Sachsen (Portables Dokumentenformat Überblick), es gibt eine stetige Nachfrage nach Absolventen, die wir aufgrund der hohen deutschlandweiten Nachfrage nicht immer befriedigen können.

Etwa 10% der Absolventen haben (zumindest zeitweise) eine Arbeitstelle im Ausland.

Auf unserer Aumni-Seite gibt es weitere Informationen hierzu: Interviews, Berichte Vorträgen etc.

I'm from Ukraine. I studied (and graduated) from BTU Cottbus (Computer Science Department) in 2007. Now I work fulltime as a software engineer at Microsoft (Redmond, WA, USA) on the Visual Studio team. BTU Cottbus was a perfect university for me to study - a great choice of modern, relevant courses, deep fundamentals well covered and an internationally recognized degree.

The university was very welcoming from day 1 - very helpful and friendly people, great, very effective and fun language course with amazing teachers, all the opportunities to be successful. Moreover, everyone says that the Uni has a very "family" atmosphere - we were literally drinking beer with the professors and assistants, they were very approachable, friendly and helpful. Also, there are plenty of job opportunities as a teaching assistant (if you know your stuff well). Finally, if you like parties and having fun, there's no better place for partying than the Uni!

The university also helped me to get into Microsoft - they have connections and Microsoft was sending out an invitation for a student internship in the USA and I was lucky enough to get selected. I spent a summer "Praktikum" in Redmond and it was an amazing experience. BTU is very supportive of students going abroad and international students coming to study here.

I've made great friends and I will always remember the Uni as a great place to study.

Coming from Azerbaijan, I knew very little about Cottbus and it seemed like a quiet remote place. But soon enough I encountered its reach and dynamic student life with all of the advantages of a small University. BTU Cottbus is very international, has many social and sport events organized by students - a place with a true student experience. Studying for BSc in Information and Media Technology I always had access to the latest computer innovations and publications, possibility to participate in academic research (and earn some extra money), discuss unclear or interesting subjects with both professors and junior academic staff. All academic personnel was very supportive in applications for scholarships and further education after BTU. High standards of education at BTU enabled me to continue my academic career and receive a doctorate degree from the University of Oxford.
