The Faculty of Technical Sciences has been in existence since 2007, with the Department of Informatics being founded as early as 1986 and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics being established in 1974. The Faculty comprises nine departments at present.
Outstanding scientific results, research projects and cooperation projects with companies form the cornerstone of the Faculty’s internationally visible specialist fields, namely:
Networked and autonomous systems
Modelling, simulation and optimisation
Engineering of software, data and knowledge-based systems
Education in informatics and mathematics
Staff-student ratios in the Faculty are favourable to those at many other universities, which promotes valuable, ongoing exchange and dialogue between teaching staff and students. As a result, the Faculty offers teaching tailored to students’ specific requirements, which focuses on the latest scientific findings, whilst ensuring a large practical component thanks to research projects with companies.
The key objectives of the Faculty are:
to give our students an outstanding education with the best possible foundation in practical and theoretical science for their future careers
to achieve excellent scientific results with high international significance
to draw on outstanding research and teaching as a basis for founding successful companies, building new businesses and creating jobs at established companies in the region.
Students benefit from exceptional staff-student ratios in the Faculty’s 9 departments. Practice-based research and pure research complement each other perfectly.
