  • Special features regarding teaching
    In addition to features regarding content, especially the teaching methods practised contribute to the profile of the courses of study. The main objectives are: Instructions for independent working, teaching of inter-disciplinary and networked thinking, promotion of communication skills, project management, leadership qualification and team-oriented behaviour, ability to think in an abstract, analytical way and to work scientifically. This is achieved by a good student-teacher ratio in the lectures with 40 to 70 participants in the Bachelor's degree and with 20 participants in the Master's degree courses.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    14 lecture halls, each with a teaching computer connected to the network, two projectors, microphone system, central media control, whiteboards or green boards; Some lecture halls have video projection, smart boards, overhead projectors; Power sockets as well as full WiFi coverage for student laptops; 14 laboratories for practicals, exercises and independent exercises, 24/7 access with chip card; 1 laboratory space with educational network; 4 project rooms for project groups, 2 seminar rooms, 1 copying room; Mobile devices such as PDAs and mobile phones for project work and master’s theses.
  • Other special features
    The Faculty of Computer Science considers its main task to be the education of the students. Within this, the active and independent work of the students, in addition to the quality of teaching and the subject-specific qualifications, is at the foreground. The Faculty of Computer Science supports qualitatively good teaching in all fields of Computer Science including related fields and strives to achieve the coexistence of practice-oriented teaching and applied practice-related research.
