The Department of Computer Science and Informatics (CSI) provides academic programmes in subjects ranging from Software Engineering and Embedded systems to New Media Design and IT Infrastructure. Our programmes are developed in close collaboration with surrounding industry and have a yearly intake of about 260 students.

At CSI we are currently in the process of establishing an SE lab/environment with focus on research and teaching in the SE-domain. The lab aims to integrate the technical side (engineering, development) with the softer side (user experience, design) through close collaboration with our newly established HCI Lab. To facilitate the HCI research, that lab is equipped with equipment that can help gain deeper user insights (e.g., eye-tracking, EEG) and to create innovative solutions (e.g., VR and AR).
