Special features regarding teaching

Several integrated internships. Extended online teaching (even before Corona, e.g. Jupyterhub). Implementation of didactic research (e.g. compact lectures). Strong support for first-year students (e.g. "learning to learn", computer science pre-course). Group work and projects (e.g. mini-projects accompanying lectures) for knowledge application. Additional computer science learning centre. Possibility of profile formation within the degree through elective courses. Uncomplicated recognition of semesters abroad. Team-based events (software engineering internship, project group).

Special features regarding the equipment

Outstanding computer equipment, renewed and updated at short intervals; generously expanded virtualisation infrastructure; nationally leading infrastructure for parallel computers through the Paderborn Centre for Parallel Computing; modern multimedia infrastructure in lecture halls (e.g. automated cameras for lecture recording) and seminar rooms, free access to a wide range of software packages. Extensive, open access to publication databases (e.g. IEEE Xplore, Springer).

Special features regarding research activities

Broad research interests in Data Science/Machine Learning, Security and Software Engineering. Top research in Collaborative Research Centre and other DFG, federal, state and EU funded projects; renowned research institutions such as Paderborn Centre for Parallel Computing, Heinz-Nixdorf Institute, SICP form an interface to industry; active in explorative topics such as quantum computing; many interdisciplinary projects, e.g. with economics, mechanical engineering, e-technology, media studies, cultural studies, participation in the top cluster ‘It's OWL’.

Support for founders

University-wide, comprehensive programme: tecUP (with extensive state funding) and Garage33 as a start-up free space; support from "business angels". As part of the Software Innovation Campus Paderborn, various offers to support start-ups; the Paderborn Centre for Advanced Studies in Computer Science and Engineering offers the Entrepreneur and Management Mini-MBA in the PACE+ programme.
