The Department of Computer Science at Saarland University is an internationally established centre for informatics research. The department is one of the most highly ranked academic departments in Germany and is one of the leading global addresses for research in computer science. More than 300 scientists are currently working and collaborating in research groups located either in the Department of Computer Science itself (with its 19 full university chairs) or in the numerous research institutions located on the Saarbrücken campus. Saarland University is the only university in Germany to have been awarded a Cluster of Excellence and a Graduate School in computer science as part of the Excellence Initiative run by the German federal and state governments.

Saarbrücken offers Master's students an ideal environment for pursuing successful, interdisciplinary, research-driven studies in informatics. Teaching modules covering core areas of theoretical and practical informatics enable students to improve their abilities in abstract reasoning and enhance their mathematical and technical understanding of the subject. The M.Sc. programme also offers students the opportunity to tailor course content to reflect individual areas of interest. By offering block courses during the recess period, students are able to study for their M.Sc. qualification at an accelerated pace.
