  • Special features regarding teaching
    Students of computer science can choose from a wide range of specialisations; a large free elective area with 32LP(B.Sc.) / 34LP(M.Sc.) allows an individual choice of modules and has a positive effect on the studyability due to the high flexibility; due to the high density of IT companies and research institutes in the region, students can acquire a very practical education in addition to a strong scientific foundation; all specialisation lectures are offered in English, which makes the department attractive for international students.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Sorbonne, Paris, Frankreich; Univ. Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, Frankreich; Univ. Politécnica de Madris, Spanien; Univ. Karlskrona, Schweden; Univ. Oulu, Finnland; Univ. Bolzano, Italien; Univ.
