Bright minds in a digital world.

The digital world is ever expanding. Digital technologies permeate every mundane aspect of our society, from phones to cars, from the internet to washing machines. Within the department of Information and Computing Sciences, we develop novel methods for incorporating information technologies in our daily lives. Sometimes these innovations are highly visible, often they are nearly invisible to the user.

We focus on socially relevant and fundamental subjects. By applying innovative thinking and a strong fundamental knowledge, we work on practical solutions and approaches within four themes:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Interaction Technology
  • Software Systems
  • Virtual Worlds

We seek out the boundaries of science, and educate students to become well equipped, enthusiastic professionals.
