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.
