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.
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.
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.
Oskar von Stryk, Professor of Computer Science for TU Darmstadt, comments: “We are excited to bring our winning autonomous capabilities and user interface from the ARGOS Challenge to the next level for increased safety and efficiency of future operations on oil and gas sites.” go
Computer scientists want to improve the world food conditions
Almost 800 million people worldwide suffer from malnutrition. In the future there could be around 9.7 billion people – around 2.2 billion more than today. Global demand for food will increase as climate change leaves more and more soil infertile. How should future generations feed themselves? go
An article about TU Darmstadt's autonomous robot ARGONAUT
Today robotics is taking automation to the next level. In about 18 months, a group that includes Total, The Oil & Gas Technology Centre, Austrian manufacturer Taurob and the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) in Hessen, Germany, intends to introduce a mobile robot for autonomous operational inspection of offshore platforms. go
