Special features regarding teaching

Practical teaching through modern special laboratories distinguishes the department. The department and the teaching are further developed with regard to the needs of the region and the future topics in economy and society. Among other things, students should be prepared for the challenge of digitalisation in the best possible way. The use of diverse forms of teaching and learning with the help of digitalisation as well as a competence-oriented design of teaching is implemented in the department. In addition, freedom is given for self-designed studies (elective courses).

Special features regarding the equipment

The faculty operates several computer pools, which are equipped with the operating systems MS-Windows, Apple-OS X as well as Linux. Virtualisation tools allow to offer special systems. The labs contain technical equipment such as NVidia DGX Station, equipment for cryptography and hacking, (technical) internet-based systems, software engineering, image processing, virtual reality etc. Pools and labs are regularly updated and kept up to date. The library of Aalen University offers university-wide access to subject-specific databases.

Special features regarding research and development

Aalen University is strong in research and innovative. In the faculty, the research areas of IT security, algorithms, virtual realities as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning are currently being expanded. Here, among other things, a personal supercomputer for AI development was acquired, and cooperations with foreign universities were entered into.

Support for founders

Student start-ups are supported by the Innovation Centre on the university campus. This provides a modern spatial infrastructure and offers know-how on all aspects of start-ups; especially in the field of software, where relatively little capital is required for a start-up, companies are located here. The innovation centre is an important contact point, especially for finding business partners and building up a network.
