Reasons to Study Computer Science in Saarbrücken

A student with books

The best mentoring

Nowhere else in Germany do students have better support than in Saarbrücken: there is one researcher for every four students.

Saarschleife

The Saarland

That it borders on France is clear right away: high quality of life, good food, varied cultural and natural attractions, and above all the warm and open Saarlanders.

Two students with laptop

The best financial support

Teaching assistantships allow you to earn money and academic credits. Merit scholarships are available for undergraduate and graduate studies.

Students looking at a laptop

In English, please!

From the fifth semester, all courses are in English; the master’s degree program is completely in English. The campus therefore has an international flair.

Flags of the institutes

Six top institutes

Six world-renowned computer science institutes make the Saarland Informatics Campus a unique place to study in Europe.

Guidance and Information for Students

What is the meaning of this passage in the study regulations? Is it possible to write a master’s thesis externally, at a company? Can I get credit for courses taken abroad? We are happy to advise you on these and other issues.

Courses and Lecturers

The lectures of the individual programs are listed on the “Teaching, Research, Study” (German abbreviation: “LSF”) portal. Students register there for exams and tests. The “collision table” makes conflicts visible at a glance.

Das Projekt Tandem an der Universität des Saarlandes verfolgt das Ziel, die für eine wirtschaftliche oder industrielle Verwertung interessanten Forschungsergebnisse der saarländischen Informatik und der Max-Planck Institute durch einen Inkubationsprozess soweit weiterzuentwickeln, dass entweder Investoren die Produkte kaufen oder lizenzieren, oder neue Unternehmen im Saarland gegründet werden. Begleitende Aktivitäten im Projekt umfassen nationale und internationale Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Maßnahmen zur Förderung des Technologietransfers im Allgemeinen sowie Formate zur Nachwuchsakquise im Bereich der Informatik. Das Projekt Tandem trägt dazu bei, die saarländische Informatik und den Wirtschaftsstandort Saarland zu stärken.
