Industrial contacts officer: Prof. R. Tavakoli Kolagari

The university works in close collaboration with companies and public institutions. More than 75% of final theses are carried out in collaboration with external partners. Professors associated with the Computer Science degree programme are always interested in expanding these connections further. The aim is to ensure a working system of knowledge transfer and to exchange information (in both directions).

Specialist colloquia on current topics regarding the use of IT, to which partners and interested parties from the commercial, industrial and administrative sectors are invited and act as forums for dialogue and idea-exchange.

Possible types of collaboration

  • Advice/project support by a professor
  • Implementation of research/development projects by one or more professors, including the involvement of qualified students
  • Supervision of final theses within the company by a professor
  • Collaboration with a professor during his or her semester in industry (at regular intervals, professors are permitted to apply for leave of absence from their teaching commitments for one semester, so that they collaborate in tasks of a practical nature).

More detailed information about subject specializations can be found on the professors’ pages.
If you are interested, please contact a professor directly, or contact our Industrial Contacts officer, Prof. Dr. R. Tavakoli Kolagari or the Dean of the Faculty
