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.
The staff of our examination office can answer any of your questions about examinations, credit points, or bachelor’s and master’s theses. Please have a look at the website of the examination office for further information and forms.

Computer science, cybersecurity or bioinformatics? Saarbrücken offers variety like nowhere else.
Information for Pupils
Ever taught a robot to drive, or built a scanner to capture objects in three dimensions? We want to make students aware of the computer science field at an early age, and therefore offer several programs, lectures and workshops. Why not sign up? It only takes a few clicks!
From Studying to Research and Careers
Science, industry, or start-ups? We offer many services to help graduates and research- or industry-based employers to get in touch.
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.
To allow scientists to focus on their research, Technical Support is ready at their side with information technology advice and assistance. The computer support group handles the IT infrastructure in the Computer Science buildings, installs and maintains the computers in the student workrooms (PC Pools), and offers help regarding frequently asked questions about computer access, applications and printers.
