Special features regarding the equipmentSeveral student tutorial and work rooms are available for students in the buildings of the Department of Computer Science. In particular, the department offers two large CIP pools which are equipped with modern PC workstations, and which can also be linked to the computer centre at the university, as well as (as part of Bachelor's and/or Master's theses) to the HLRS high-performance computing centre if necessary. The technical equipment is state-of-the-art. The seminar rooms and lecture theatres are equipped with projectors.
Special features regarding research activitiesThe faculty always occupies top positions in third-party funding rankings (e.g. DFG ranking). Our research is compatible with other disciplines. We are involved in the Cluster of Excellence SimTech, in the Graduate School GSaME, in 4 Collaborative Research Centres and in 1 BMBF Research Centre. Content strengths: include Visualisation, Cloud Computing, Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, Computational Linguistics, Reliable Systems. Many international research projects are carried out in Computer Science which students can participate in. There are cooperations with many companies.
Support for foundersThe department itself has no initiatives of its own to support business start-ups. The department refers interested parties to the support services offered by the university as a whole, in particular the Technologie Transfer Initiative GmbH.
Other special featuresThe department has a very active student organisation, which addresses all the needs of students and represents the students' opinions in university committees. The Informatik-Forum Stuttgart (Computer Science Forum Stuttgart) (info) is a society which promotes Computer Science at the Universität Stuttgart. The primary aim is to strengthen the field of Computer Science and the new academic generation, as well as the structure and expansion of relations between science and industry, focussing on the region of Stuttgart.
