Faculty IV - Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Profile of Faculty IV Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

For Future Society

Health, energy, mobility, communication, security: electrical engineering and computer science are key to these and many other areas of modern everyday life. These disciplines are combined into a single faculty at TU Berlin due to the rich synergies that exist between them and the interdisciplinary opportunities they offer. Without this combination, digitalization, artificial intelligence, and robotics would be inconceivable. The broad spectrum of research and teaching in the Faculty reflects this Among many projects, the interdisciplinary Cluster of Excellence “Science of Intelligence” is located in the Faculty.

The volume of publications produced, regular external funding grants upwards of 10 million euros, and outstanding research awards such as three Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prizes and two Alexander von Humboldt Professorships contribute to the Faculty’s outstanding reputation worldwide. The Faculty consolidates its research expertise in six research fields: cognitive systems, cyber-physical systems, data analytics & cloud, future Internet media & technology, integration technology & photonics and sustainable energy systems & mobility. As a result, the more than 6000 students in the Faculty, the largest at TU Berlin, benefit from a broad spectrum of modern teaching offerings. In addition to the core disciplines of electrical engineering and computer science, unique study programs have been developed in recent years, such as Computer Engineering, Media Technology, Digital Media & Technology, Business Informatics, and Information Systems Management, as well as international and specialized master’s programs in Computational Neuroscience, Automotive Systems, and ICT Innovation.
