Department of Computer Science

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science!

Wilhelm Schickard ushered in the era of computing devices in Tübingen – and never has computer science been as exciting as today, almost 400 years later. The more than 40 groups of the Wilhelm-Schickard Institute (WSI) teach, research and apply computer science at top level.

The research focus of the institute lies in the core areas of computer science as well as in bioinformatics, media informatics and cognitive science. Tübingen's computer scientists benefit from the diverse research environment within and outside the University of Tübingen.

The focus on machine learning is currently being rapidly expanded, in particular through the Cluster of Excellence "Machine Learning in Science" and the Baden-Württemberg Cyber Valley Initiative, which also includes the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart. Together with these strong partners, the Department of Computer Science forms one of the centres for machine learning in Germany and Europe.

The study of computer science in Tübingen is correspondingly versatile and at the pulse of time: Join us in studying this young science in our Bachelor's and Master's programmes and become part of the success story!
