Faculty of Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Applied Cognitive Science (INKO) consists of two teaching units, which analyse computer systems from different perspectives and with different methods. While the focus in Computer Science is on technology, in Applied Cognitive Science it is on humans. As computers become omnipresent and network almost invisibly with their environment, this dual perspective of technology and its human users is very important: Modern technical systems must not only function properly, they must also find social acceptance.
