The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics is a natural sciences faculty with two core areas: computer science and mathematics. It is mathematics which lays the foundation for all technical and business disciplines. In computer science we see our task as teaching students to formulate problems from industry, business, administration and medicine in a way that allows them to be resolved effectively using data processing systems.
We provide a broad, practice-oriented grounding while responding to the market's known demands for specialisation in selected skills. The knowledge acquired in our Bachelor programmes can be broadened and intensified in two Master courses: the Master of Computer Science and the Master of Mathematics. Our application-oriented approach with its strong practical focus is enhanced by numerous opportunities for partnership with regional business and industry.
All our degree programmes are accredited by ASIIN. The ASIIN agency is certified by the German Accreditation Council, whose purpose is to ensure the quality of teaching and learning in Germany and, to contribute to the attainment of the European Higher Education Area. This guarantees that our programs meet internationally recognized quality requirements.
