The aim of the Youth Academy is to highlight the diverse application areas of computer science and to inspire the creative expression that is waiting there to be tapped. Sparking the curiosity of boys and girls in computer science can encourage them to embark on the path to a degree.  At Youth Academy events, high school students get specific information about the IT Systems Engineering major or about studying computer science in general and on new technologies.

A primary objective is therefore to support the talent and potential of interested young people and to guide on their way to a promising career in the field of information technology.
