Key points of your apprenticeship at RUAG
Computer scientist EFZ [Swiss certificate of competence]
Computer scientists work in either application or platform development. The first area covers software solutions for new or modified products, processes and user requirements as well as the integration of application components. The second area is concerned with building and maintaining systems and applications that are appropriately selected, installed and configured. As you can see, this profession offers many facets and drives digital progress.
Computer scientists working in application development first make preliminary investigations for a solution and develop a detailed concept. For example, they program software applications with C++ or JAVA for the management and visualization of data. Following this, the software solution is extensively tested.
Computer scientists in platform development install and configure user and system specific applications using script. This is carried out as automatically as possible and without user intervention. Additionally, the configurations of group policies, shares, etc. are implemented via script. They are also responsible for network security and troubleshooting. A job at RUAG is therefore characterized by technological diversity.
