Explore digital worlds, learn how computer games are created, or why cyber security is so important. Exciting workshops await, ranging from computer graphics to bioinformatics.
As part of the JKU Young Computer Scientists program, you will meet internationally renowned researchers and experts. During the workshop sessions, you not only learn from them, you also find out more about prospective careers and degree programs.
As a JKU Young Scientist, we also offer a unique opportunity to complete a summer internship at the JKU or at a well-known IT company in Upper Austria.
Registration for this year's program is already over. Registration for next year (2022/23) will start in October 2022.
The program consists of 5 workshops that provide insight into many facets of computer science. Each workshop will take place on a Friday and should be completed. The workshops will begin with a base-knowledge lecture on the subject area and then continue with a hands-on activity.
