Special features regarding teaching

Bamberg Computer Science offers a broad, interdisciplinary-based and research-related range of courses with numerous options and a good student-teacher ratio. It is aimed at students with interests in core Computer Science as well as those with interest in the application areas of Humanities and Cultural Studies. The course does not focus on hardware, but instead is centred on projects. All courses are offered at least once a year and the related examinations each semester. Since 2017, the faculty has also been a member of the Fakultätentag Informatik.

Exchange universities for stay abroads

Institute of Technology Tallaght, Irland; Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finnland; University of Oulu, Finnland; University of Madeira, Portugal; University of Skövde, Schweden; University of Stirling, Schottland; Roskilde University, Dänemark; University of Alberta, Calgary, Kanada; University of Gergia, Athens, USA

Special features regarding the equipment

Excellent media infrastructure and equipped PC labs; e-learning and learning management systems; online library for journals and books (e-journals and e-books); 24/7 access to library and workstations there. A new computer pool is currently being set up with an additional 105 workstations (each with an i7 mini-PC plus 24-inch screen), which, as a multi-style teaching room, allows a flexible mixture of lecture and seminar style with hands-on practical tasks on the computer by means of screens that can be retracted into the table. All chairs have their own laboratories for project work.

Special features regarding research activities

Bamberg Computer Science has an inter-disciplinary format and combines Applied Computer Science departments (Cultural Information Systems, Media Informatics, HCI, Cognitive Systems and Smart Environments) with classical fields of Computer Science (Distributed and Mobile Systems, Software Engineering and Programming Languages, Communication and Computer Networks, as well as basic knowledge of Computer Science). Within this, the research profile is focussed on innovative applications in particular in the Digital Humanities, the interface between humans and computers, as well as the realisation and analysis of complex, networked software systems.

Support for founders

Close cooperation with the Digital Start-up Centre Bamberg (DGZ), which was set up as part of the Digitalisation Offensive Bavaria and, in addition to infrastructure for start-ups, also offers advice, lectures and networking for potential start-ups from the student body. The network offers also help potential founders to find partner companies and to find funding opportunities.
