Department of Computer Science

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science. The Technische Universität Darmstadt is the leading research-oriented university in the Rhein-Main area with a strong focus on Computer Science and Engineering.

The content of our Bachelor's degree is application-based and reflects the challenges Computer Science students are facing in regard to a fast-growing digital working environment. In addition to our Master of Science, we offer five specialised Master study courses, which enable our students to educate themselves in relevant and future-oriented core areas.

Research

The scientists of the Computer Science Department are combining their numerous research activities in six priorities. They include both basic research and application-oriented projects and are complemented by further relevant research topics in the individual research groups. Based on these research areas the department offers students research-oriented, specialized Master's programmes.

Studies

The Computer Science courses at TU Darmstadt are research-oriented and open the door to exciting professional positions – whether in research and development or in consulting and management.

    Professor Sebastian Faust is researching safe blockchain technologies

    Blockchains promise widescale open Internet applications that are organised decentrally. This comes at the price of slow performance for every transaction processed by the system. Cryptography researchers around Professor Sebastian Faust have achieved global awareness with their approach to facilitating real-time transactions using blockchains such as Ethereum.
