Special features regarding teachingMethodically-oriented training profile; scientifically founded, foundation and application-oriented course; variety of inter-disciplinary elements through membership to classical university; strong synergies between teaching and research; innovative use of e-learning and modern media in all areas of study (e.g. use of smartphones and tablets); teaching of inter-disciplinary and social skills; training in independent learning and working in company or academic environments; consistent documentation of performance for self-monitoring
Exchange universities for stay abroadsInstitut Polytechnique de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, Frankreich; Göteborg Universität, Schweden; Universidad des Pais Vasco, Bilbao, Spanien; Tampere University, Finnland; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spanien; Haskolinn, Reykjavik, Island; KU Leuven, Belgien; La Sapienza, Rom, Italien; Lyngby University, Dänemark; Hacettepe Üniversitesi, Ankara, Türkei
Special features regarding the equipmentModern computer rooms with special equipment; technically very well-equipped labs (robotics, image processing and computer graphics, hardware, electronics, mechanics, optics, clean room class 4); WiFi access everywhere; extensive e-learning programmes (especially recorded lectures); innovative use of multimedia in teaching (smartphones in teaching, use of tablet PCs for examinations); modern technical equipment in the classrooms (smart boards, overhead projectors/audio systems)
Special features regarding research activitiesResearch and teaching are closely linked, there is interaction beyond the boundaries of the institute and faculty on a daily basis. Basic and applied research are carried out to an equal extent frequently with the involvement of the students. Key areas lie in the areas of Cyber-Physical Systems, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning as well as Bioinformatics. Areas of excellence (CIBSS - Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies) as well as cooperations with Fraunhofer institutes offer an ideal environment. One of 17 ELLIS Centres of Excellence for Machine Learning in Europe.
Support for foundersThe university's central office for technology transfer supports and supervises the utilisation of research results. The spectrum of services ranges from contract research to patents and licenses to the founding of companies. The faculty has a technology transfer staff member who works at both the ZFT and the faculty, providing an appropriate bridgehead. The expertise of this employee in IP matters (patents, trademarks, ...) is actively used. There are already numerous company spin-offs from the faculty.
Other special featuresIn addition to diverse areas of application, Computer Science also offers the opportunity to do basic research. Diversity and the numerous overlaps with other areas make Computer Science an interesting and promising course of study. The requirement for successful academic studies is not only enjoying analytical and mathematical thinking but also creative talent.
