Dresden University of Technology
With more than 2000 Students, the Faculty of Computer Science of the Technische Universität Dresden ranks among the largest education institutions for Computer Science in Germany. 19 different degrees like Dr.-Ing., Dr. rer. nat., Diplom, Master, Bachelor, as well as several degrees for teachers, are offered. Besides classical Computer Science and Media Computer Science, students may choose from five more study programs, including two Master programs fully taught in English.
Computer Science education at the IT location Dresden goes back to the beginnings of electronic computer engineering. Researchers from Dresden under Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. N. J. Lehmanns leadership were among the first to conceive and build magnetic drum memory and to develop the first digital electronic computers. Today, more than 100 research projects are underway at TU Dresden, including the keystone project “Theseus” that aims to create a platform for the Internet of services, a project focussing on security improvements of operating systems by using micro-kernel technology, the “QStream” project on data stream management systems, and the “Arrive” project for the design of a universal toolkit for architecture modeling and system simulation. Founded in 1828, the Technische Universität Dresden belongs to the oldest and most venerable universities in Germany, with strong research and numerous national and international cooperations. In 1990, the Faculty of Computer Science emerged out of the Computer Science Center.
The six Institutes of the Faculty of Computer Science cover the whole spectrum of computer science, from theory to practice, from basic research to applications. A particularly high scientific competence and efficiency distinguish the faculty in the areas of software engineering, multimedia, operating systems, privacy and data security, parallel and distributed computing systems, intelligent systems, and formal methods. Modern technology, teaching and learning driven by research and practice, internationally active professors and interesting main fields of research as well as worldwide collaborations with universities and industry create best conditions.
