Computer science in Tübingen is one of the leading CS departments in Germany in terms of research, and it is internationally renowned. The department collaborates with major enterprises and research institutes both nationally and internationally. The CS department places strong emphasis on interdisciplinary cooperation with other university departments, in particular medicine, biology, psychology, and media studies, and also with the three Max Planck Institutes located in Tübingen.
Innovative. Interdisciplinary. International. Since its foundation in 1477, the University of Tübingen incorporates these three guiding principles in both teaching and research. It is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Germany, and offers an excellent study environment. It was able to assert itself with its institutional strategy in the German federal and state governments’ Excellence Initiative, making it one of Germany’s eleven universities in the top Excellence class. The motto of the university speaks for itself – Attempto! (I dare to)
Tübingen does not have a university – Tübingen is a university: young, creative, open, innovative. With its lovely historical center and attractive location on the river Neckar, Tübingen offers a high quality of living and a high recreational value.
