About us

The Center of Computer Science unites research, studies and network under one roof.

Thus, it combines excellent basic research with cutting-edge application fields, trains highly skilled young professionals in its degree programs and creates synergy effects through international and interdisciplinary knowledge exchange. The success of the resulting technology transfer is globally visible and recognized.

The CCS was founded with the vision of strengthening the core fields of computer science at the Ruhr-University Bochum through a modern, cross-faculty institution. Currently, 19 professors are conducting their research on a broad spectrum of highly topical sub-disciplines of computer science. The signs of the CCS are set for additional growth: The research portfolio will soon be expanded even further through the establishment of new professorships.

More than almost any other discipline, computer science permeates almost all areas of life. At the same time, it is developing at a rapid pace, supporting and influencing other industries. Information has become „the gold“ of the 21st century. They build the basis for new business models. They are collected, processed and sold. New knowledge is generated from information. As a university institution, we contribute daily to the constructive advancement of this highly innovative field.
