Saarland University Information
The Saarland University (Universität des Saarlandes) is located in Saarbrücken, Germany having been first founded in Homburg in 1948.
It functions in cooperation with the country of France and is organized into eight faculties, which cover the major fields in science. Saarland University is especially well known for its education and research in Computer Science and Computational Linguistics.
Saarland University was the first German educational institution founded after World War II. It was established in November 1948 with the provision of the French Government and with the support of the University of Nancy. The university had a European perspective since the beginning due to the combination of the French and German educational traditions as well as the dual languages of educational instruction. Before the Saarland University was founded proper, clinical training courses for medical students at the state hospital in Homburg, Saarland were introduced (in early 1946 and on 8 May 1947), the “Centre Universitaire d’Etudes Supérieures de Hombourg” was then established under the patronage of the University of Nancy.
The Saarland University is now offering Bachelor and Master programmes of study in addition to the older and more traditional Diplom which is the tradition in Germany. The institution is entitled to confer Ph.D. Degrees from all of the eight faculties and it is also able to confer honorary titles.
Saarland University is also liable for conducting related courses of Computer Science for students who are enrolled in the graduate courses of the MPI for Computer Science as well as MPI for Software Systems. It is included in the limited number of universities in Germany that are teaching their entire master’s program of Computer Science in English.
Both the graduate and undergraduate students from across the world find the Saarbrücken’s computer science environment a stimulating one. The wide range of research areas—from artificial intelligence to computer graphics to software system—is reflected through the offered rich courses. All of the staff at Saarland University from the professors, senior scientists to the directors and research staff are actively involved in lecturing and the discussing current research topics.
