  • Special features regarding teaching
    Possible to set individual focal points (e.g. applications of artificial intelligence, mechatronic systems); numerous modules with elective options, e.g. project work; integration of student project work in research projects already in the Bachelor's degree courses; projects with a high level of interdisciplinarity; all degree courses with a practical semester, which can optionally be completed entirely abroad. Individual modules, projects or final theses can also be completed there; in essential basic courses there is a tutor throughout the semester.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Barcelona, Spanien; Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata, Rom, Italien; Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), Dundalk, Irland; Dalarna University, Dalarna, Schweden; Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal; Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard, Belfort, Frankreich; John von Neumann University, Kecskemét, Ungarn; University of Silesia, Katowice, Polen; Regent University, Accra, Ghana; Clemson University, South Carolina, USA
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    State-of-the-art computer science laboratories: Software engineering: agile development and application of software systems; geomatics laboratory: Geoinformatics, environmental sensor technology, land surveying; microprocessor laboratory and Makerspace INNODIG: Circuit development, soldering station, 3D printing, laser cutter, insulation cutter, sensor/actuator technology, Internet of Things; media informatics laboratories in the field of photography/film production: high-quality cameras, film lights, studio flash equipment, light shapers as well as laboratories for interactive media and augmented reality: Multimedia applications, 3D interaction, gesture control.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Since 2003, research activities in computer science have been concentrated in the Institute for Software Systems (ISS) at Trier University of Applied Sciences. The focus is on the development and application of information technology, and in particular artificial intelligence, geared to sustainability and resource efficiency. This makes the ISS one of the few institutes in Germany to research issues of sustainable development from the perspective of computer science. Especially in the field of AI, the ISS has acquired various sovereign research projects in recent years.
  • Support for founders
    Business start-ups have been promoted by the university's start-up office since 2012. Since April 2020, the BMWi-funded project "Gründungs- und Innovationsregion Südwest+" (GIS+) has increasingly integrated entrepreneurial activities into the curriculum and expanded networking with the regional economy. Formats are designed especially for the computer science department, resulting in interdisciplinary "matching" with students from other departments. Within GIS+, "start-up professors" have been recruited to develop sector-specific start-up awareness.
  • Other special features
    All computer science courses at the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld of Trier University are closely interlinked. Students can take exciting electives and projects from related courses. Interdisciplinary projects, in which students work together in teams across disciplinary boundaries, are also an integral part of the course. Working together with engineers and business economists on an interdisciplinary project is not only inspiring, but also a very good preparation for practical projects in professional life.
