      • Teaching:

         At the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen - University of Applied Sciences, the whole spectrum of the Computer Science is covered with the Applied Computer Science courses (a total of 7 Bachelor's and 3 Master's courses). Computer Science as the most fundamental of the courses is oriented on the core area, software development. Few compulsory courses are the basis for a wide range of optional courses.

      • Equipment:

         Computer Science is a dynamic, young and growing discipline with great need of the latest technical equipment. Therefore, a new building was inaugurated in 2006 where teaching and research with current technical standard are guaranteed. Modern communication and presentation technology, excellent network and computer infrastructures ensure modern teaching and research.

      • Other special features:

         Our study courses have been completely redesigned in the transitional period to Bachelor/Master and will be continuously evaluated and developed.

This approach ensures that our study courses remain up-to-date and will gain quality - not only due to the competitive situation.
