In the School of Mathematics/Computer Science, excellent research and teaching profiles are achieved not only in Mathematics and Computer Science, but also in Geoinformatics and Systems Science.
In teaching, these four disciplines are primarily connected by their involvement in the polyvalent Dual Major Bachelor’s Degree. Mathematics and Computer Science are also strongly represented in Teacher Education degree programs. In addition, the departments featuring disciplinary Master’s programs such as Mathematics, Computer Science, Geoinformatics, Environmental Systems, and Resource Management also have excellent networks beyond the School.
By regularly hosting events (e.g. a Kids’ Maths Contest, Computer Science Taster Days, Maths Day, a Teaching Trends conference, Osnabrück Autumn Academy, Technology Day and the E-Learning and Diversity Future Workshop), the departments wish to arouse interest in their disciplines sustainably and at an early stage, as well as contributing to the University’s knowledge transfer.
There is a great interest at the School in offering targeted guidance towards a PhD in the current research context, as evidenced by the newly established structured PhD program in Mathematics and the Computer Science PhD program. Close links to the PhD /Post Doc Career Center also ensure that PhD students at the School of Mathematics/Computer Science gain maximum support.
In the area of research, the School is characterized by innovative approaches and interdisciplinary networking, both within and outside the University. This is also clear from the Center for Early Childhood Development and Education Research (CEDER), the establishment of a branch office of the Bremen-based Robotics Innovation Center (RIC) of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and the creation of the “Intelligent Media and Learning” Fraunhofer Research Group.
