Symbolbild (Universität Paderborn, Besim Mazhiqi)

The stuff of science fiction films: For decades, so-called "programmable matter" has inspired filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts worldwide. It is able to change its shape and properties, such as color, form and elasticity, either independently or based on external influences.

Research and teaching

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics combines three institutes with strong STEM disciplines and contributes with its research performance to all profile areas of the university. Thereby, the interdisciplinary networking within the faculty and with the research areas of the other four faculties of the University of Paderborn is our strength and guarantees a continuous development. Our successes become visible in top research projects such as the SFB 901 „On-The-Fly Computing", the TRR 318 „Constructing Explainability“, the TRR 142 „Maßgeschneiderte nichtlineare Photonik“ and the TTRR 358 „Ganzzahlige Strukturen in Geometrie und Darstellungstheorie“. Many research institutions in which the faculty is significantly involved stand for excellence in research and transfer to industry. In addition to the HNI, the Fraunhofer IEM and the Fraunhofer ENAS/ASE, the KET, the PC2and the SICP should be mentioned as institutions that strengthen the structure. In addition, with the PhoQS and the JAII, new interdisciplinary institutions have been established with the participation of the faculty.
With modern courses of study, we train the next generation in electrical engineering, computer science and mathematics for tasks in industry and research. We are also significantly involved in the training of future STEM teachers. Many of our courses and degree programs are taught in English and are therefore also attractive to international students.
In accordance with the Humboldtian ideal of education, the strong research achievements flow into teaching and ensure education at the highest level.


International Faculty

As a faculty, we are part of an international research community. Our departments consist of scientists with an international profile. The internationalization strategy of the faculty is also reflected by the English-language courses offered in the Master's programs Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Systems Engineering, Optoelectronics und Photonics. The offer in the English-language study programs is continuously expanded by new international cooperation and the foreign mobility of our students and staff is increased. English-speaking graduates are also integrated into this international research community at an early stage. The faculty can also convince with excellent results in international rankings.


Young scientists

For our faculty, challenging support of young scientists is a central element for excellent research: young scientists are seen as an essential driver for new, innovative approaches in both basic and applied research. The faculty accompanies young scientists intensively from their entry into the doctoral program through the postdoctoral qualification phase to the completion of a junior professorship or junior research group leadership, thus ensuring optimal support on this career path.

Research and transfer

Electrical engineering, computer science and mathematics: three institutes with over sixty professorships - we are diverse and interdisciplinary. Our research is forward-looking, internationally successful and attractive for both recognized and prospective scientists. Here, scientists can carry out successful research projects, find cooperations with companies and other scientific institutions, and attend graduate colleges. The numerous opportunities to fully develop scientifically and in an international framework are close to our hearts for continuous innovative development.

Our research and thus the knowledge we generate is highly relevant - its communication to society and transfer into applicability therefore traditionally play a major role in our faculty. Institutionally, we cooperate with the economy through participations in IFIM, C-LAB, s-lab, SICP, PC2, khdm, KET and in the network through it‘s OWL, Fraunhofer ENAS/ASE and Fraunhofer IEM.
