At the Department of Informatics 28 professors research and teach supported by approximately 180 research, technology and management staff. More than 2300 students are enrolled in 5 Bachelor and 5 Master degree courses.
The role of computer science is to support and assist people in dealing with increasingly complex tasks and processes. Systems should remain manageable and understandable: technology has to adapt to human beings, not vice versa.
Research and teaching at the Department of Informatics places human beings at the center of the three principal informatics tasks: analysis, design and construction.
