 Central aim of organisation
Research and teaching both in business informatics and in software engineering

 Briefly describe your organisation
Our department is committed to research and teaching both in business informatics and in software engineering. Both are interdisciplinary fields that must integrate technical, business administration and social science subject matter. In software engineering we pursue the development of concepts, methods, procedures and tools to design, analyze and assess software architectures as well as user interfaces, to plan, manage and control software development processes, to improve productivity and quality in the production of software and to develop software engineering strategies. In business informatics we concentrate on the development of concepts, methods, procedures and tools to improve productivity and quality in the development and use of computer and communication technologies, to employ information as a production factor, to assess effectiveness and efficiency in the development and application of information and communication technologies.
