Computer science is one of the most versatile and future-proof field of study at the crossroads between mathematics and engineering sciences. In all areas of life computer science skills are in demand and forecasts confirm that these demands will even increase in the future. The range of jobs is incredibly diverse: from management consultancies, software houses to companies in the fields of automotive, medical technology, finance, railway, aviation, space and large plants.
The Department of Computer Science at TU Braunschweig was founded in 1972. With 13 professors and nine institutes the department covers a broad spectrum of thematic areas and carries out international work in basic and application research. With more than a dozen different minor subjects, the study of computer science offers many avenues of specialization based on individual interests.
As far as teaching is concerned, the department attaches particular value to excellent mentoring, a good partnership with the students and high quality lectures and seminars. All institutions are housed in the newly-built computer science centre. This guarantees not only short distances and best facilities, but facilitates contact with teachers and fellow students.
The study of computer science involves incorporating numerous theoretical and scientific concepts into useful real world applications. Strong links between the department and a wide range of regional and international industries and businesses help foster a mutually beneficial atmosphere of academic rigor and practical relevance.
Founded in 1745, TU Braunschweig has the longest history among the institutes of technology in Germany and in the field of computer science. Based on this history, TU Braunschweig with its 120 institutes and more than 20,000 students offers excellent conditions for students embedded into an innovative environment: Braunschweig is at the center of one of the most research-intensive regions of Germany and, according to Eurostat, the region with the second-highest "total intramural R&D expenditure (euro per inhabitant)" in Europe.
