Department of Computer Science

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at Technical University (TU) of Darmstadt – one of Germany’s leading technical universities with a strong focus on Computer Science and Engineering.

Experience and excellence: Founded in 1972, today 25 professors conduct research and teach courses at the department. It includes two DFG Collaborative Research Centres, one DFG Research Training Group and a total of four of the renowned ERC Grants. Thus, the department offers a wide range of topics in basic and application-oriented research as well as in teaching.

Our bachelor programme combines basic methodological expertise with practical skills. In our master programme, students can deepen their knowledge and develop expertise in several important areas of computer science. Five specialized master programmes allow a focus on highly relevant future areas.

Our graduates are in great demand in industry and academia because of their profound theoretical and practical knowledge and skills.

Applying for the Summer Term 2021

The application period for the summer term 2021 for all programs of the Department of Computer Science will start on December 1, 2020. Please also carefully review the information for applicants with German certificates (usually “Abitur”)or international certificates. For questions about accrediting achieved credits, especially for applicants to a higher term in the B.Sc. Informatik (CS), please contact the .

All other questions regarding the application process can only be addressed by the central student service (you will find the contact address on the links above), not by members of the Department of Computer Science.

    Scalable data management for future hardware

    DFG priority program enters second phase | TU Darmstadt with project successful

    Data management architectures will change radically in the next few years: The spectrum of applications that have to process large amounts of data has expanded significantly. In addition, new trends are making it possible to rethink current system architectures – both at the hardware and operating system level.
