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.

    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?

    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.

    Darmstadt’s cybersecurity scientists uncover vulnerabilities in JavaScript-based Web Servers

    Scientists at the Center for Research in Security and Privacy (CRISP) demonstrate that malicious intentions may cause not functioning, apparently “frozen” websites. The scientists discovered vulnerabilities in JavaScript software modules, which allow cyber criminals to freeze specific web sites, so that other users cannot access the web site anymore.
