Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Jacobs University
Our goal in education is to take people with raw talent and intellect, nurture them in our environment through a thorough immersion in research and coursework, and produce well-educated researchers and future leaders. To this end, a variety of courses, labs, and seminars is offered. The undergraduate programs, leading to a B.Sc. degree, are Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The graduate programs, leading to an M.Sc. / Ph.D. degree, encompass the Computer Science - Smart Systems Computer Science program and Communications, Systems, and Electronics.
Research is organized in Research Centers. The EECS group is primarily contributing to the Center of Advanced Systems Engineering (CASE), the center on Cognitive Systems and Processes (COSYP), and the center on Mathematics, Modeling, and Computing (MAMOC).
We actively seek and maintain international cooperations in research and education. One particular feature are exchange programs with universities such as Carnegie Mellon University or Rice University. In addition, strong relationships are maintained to companies and industrial research labs where our students find jobs and excel.
The high quality of the education in EECS, CS, and ECE at Jacobs University is also regularly confirmed in rankings (highlights and achievements). In the latest 2009 ranking of the CHE, the general study situation ("Studiensituation insgesamt") in CS at Jacobs University is ranked on the 1st place among more than 80 universities in Germany and selected European institutions.
