Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Computer Science
The Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Computer Science is home to fundamental, interdisciplinary sciences that are the basis for all university academic programmes: Mathematics, Physics/Chemistry and Computer Science.
Faculty 1 is responsible for basic training in mathematics, computer science, physics and chemistry, the foundation upon which all other subjects at the BTU are built.
The faculty comprises four academic segments:
- Computer Science,
- Physics / Chemistry,
- and three Chairs in the Arts and Humanities.
Most Faculty Chairs belong to one of the following Institutes:
- Mathematics Institute
- Institute of Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computing
- Institute of Computer Science and Information and Media Technology
- Institute of Physics and Chemistry
Our research endeavours in the core subjects of mathematics and physics/chemistry are designed to complement the specific engineering science character of the BTU Cottbus, and are carried out in close cooperation with other disciplines. Beyond pure computer science theory, we feature a practical teaching orientation. In particular, we promote interdisciplinary links with the engineering sciences, especially with the field of communications and media technology.
