Several world-renowned computer science institutes are located on the Saarland Informatics Campus at Saarland University – often only a few steps apart from one another. The researchers working here make Saarbrücken a unique European site for computer science.
Around 30 research topics are explored by the scientists of the Saarland Informatics Campus (SIC) – from theoretical computer science, formal methods, algorithms and complexity, through artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational linguistics, to embedded systems and language processing.
Contacts, Directories, Research Groups
Around 800 researchers make the Saarland Informatics Campus a unique location for computer science. They do research as PhD students, independent research group leaders, professors, and emeritus professors in more than 70 research groups.
The Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science arose in the context of the “German Universities Excellence Initiative” of the federal and state governments to promote science and research at German universities. We are distinguished by international working groups and guidance from renowned scientists. The graduates are among the best in their field.
The Campus Library for Computer Science and Mathematics is the common library of the on-campus Max Planck Institutes, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics at Saarland University. In addition to 120,000 computer science and mathematics publications, the library also offers individual and group work spaces.
Technology Transfer: Entrepreneurship and Investing
In order to transform research results into products and licenses, all institutes of the Saarland Informatics Campus work closely with the entrepreneurship organizations of the state and federal governments. The on-site IT-Incubator, supported by the university, the state, and the Max Planck Society, helps scientists to protect their ideas with patents and to make them usable by business and industry, and supports the establishment of new IT businesses that provide numerous jobs for the region.
From internships to professorships, job opportunities at the Saarland Informatics Campus are wide-ranging. Whether during your studies, or as the next step in your career, the SIC as an employer offers excellent prospects to gain your footing on our campus.
Scientists at the Saarland Informatics Campus (SIC) carry out top-level research. Their projects are presented at renowned international conferences, as well as at trade fairs such as the international computer expo CeBIT in Hannover.
