The Department of Informatics, founded in 1982, is currently the largest department at Clausthal University of Technology. At the same time it is one of the youngest departments, considering the average age of our faculty. The department offers an innovative teaching program and research profile, which covers many attractive fields of Computer Science, Information Systems, and Computer Engineering. With additional professorships announced and new positions planned, the department is continuously growing and able to offer more. A detailed overview of the department can be found here.
Currently, our undergraduate students can choose between three main focuses in our Computer Science/Business Information Systems Bachelor Program which, upon completion, can be followed on by a Master Program in Computer Science or Business Information Systems. Based on solid foundational knowledge of Computer Science, the main teaching focuses of our courses are in the fields of Computational Intelligence, Database and Information Systems, Embedded Systems, Graphical Data Processing and Multimedia, Hardware Design and Robotics, Human-Centered Information Systems, Software Systems Engineering, Computer Systems, and Business Information Systems.
The Department of Informatics maintains close relations with other departments of the university as well as the Clausthal Institute for Environmental Technologies (CUTEC GmbH), who are a renowned industry partner involved in numerous national and international projects and networks in the areas of technology and innovation.
