Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at the h_da

The Department of Computer Science at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest and most renowned of its kind throughout Germany. A highly-motivated team of 50 professors, 60 members of staff and more than 100 contract lecturers work for about 2,000 students in intriguing bachelor's and master's programmes.

As one of the first departments in Germany, we developed bachelor's and master's degree programmes back in 1999, which have since been improved and re-accredited several times. Since 2017, we have had our own right to award doctorates, so that students in our department can also obtain a PhD after completing the master's programme at our university. Alternatively, our PhD students qualify in cooperation with universities - more than 30 PhDs have already been completed in this way.

As a student or prospective student, the size of the department offers you the advantage of being able to move across the entire spectrum of computer science in your studies, from theory to diverse areas of application (e.g. IT security, big data, augmented reality) to questions of economic efficiency in computer science.

Teaching, research and practice are integrated in our department. Choose the one that suits you best from our wide range of courses. You can find more information about our bachelor's programme under study information. You can find our master's programme here or as a dual variant here.
