  • Special features regarding teaching
    Almost all lectures are complemented by an internship. Here the students learn in small groups (16 students) mostly on notebook/PC the practical application of the concepts introduced in the lecture. In pairs or also in medium-sized groups, projects are worked out, tasks that build on each other are implemented. The practical courses are usually held by the professors themselves. Lectures are mostly interactive, live-coding as well as lecture hall exercises are typical didactic elements.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    University of Applied Science Oulu, Finnland; DIT Dublin Institute of Technology, Irland; Reykjavik University, Island; Télécom SudParis, Frankreich; NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology Gjovik, Norwegen; Mälardalen University, Schweden; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spanien; Hanyang University Seoul, Südkorea; UMASS University of Massachusetts, USA; Xi'An University of Posts and Telecommunications, China
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Topic-specific labs (multimedia, InCar, networks, databases, software engineering), online learning platform for conducting presence-free teaching (specialized virtual rooms for lectures, internships or student learning groups); video recording of some lectures; online video streaming platform for providing video material for courses; virtual servers and container platform for student projects and courses; platform for freely providing code repositories for courses, projects and student projects.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    LOEWE Centre CASED - Centre for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt; CRISP - Centre for Research in Security and Privacy; da/sec - Biometrics and Internet Security Research Group; Editions- und Forschungsstelle Frank Wedekind; In November 2017, the first PhD Centre for Computer Science at a University of Applied Sciences was opened. Research topics of the centre will include IT security, big data, telecommunications, speech recognition, computer networks, virtual and augmented reality, human-machine interaction, and interactive and digital media.
  • Support for founders
    The Dörte Wörner Innovation Award aims to encourage members of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences to develop business ideas in the field of information technology and thus to found companies. In addition, there are various events such as the night of the founders or a founders' meeting of the university.
  • Other special features
    Not only the lectures but also the practicals and tutorials are personally supervised by the professors so that direct contact with the students which is based on partnership is ensured. In order to make the start of the studies easier, the departmental student organisation offers a first-semester induction over the course of several days. As part of this, you will not only be provided with essential information, but also meet new people. In the ideal scenario, this will lay the foundation for a learning group, which, in our experience, is essential for successful studies.
