Faculty Profile

Information Systems and Applied Computer Sciences (WIAI) was established on 1 October 2001 and is characterized by an interdisciplinary curricular layout that remains the only one of its kind in Germany:

It combines the field of Information Systems, with its foundations in Economics and Computer Science, with a realm of Applied Computer Sciences focused on the humanities and human sciences, and also with classic subject areas pertaining to theoretical and practical Computer Science.

Synergy with the university’s main focus areas in the humanities, human sciences and in social sciences, economics and business administration is fostered by integrative course offerings and joint research endeavours.

Due to this application-oriented curricular profile within a forward-thinking, thoroughly integrated modern course offering, our graduates occupy a unique place in international education.
