Informatics, nanotechnology, biosciences and Europe are the key disciplines that are shaping the university’s profile. The outstanding reputation of the Department of Informatics was underscored in the national academic excellence initiative, and the numerous internationally recognized, externally funded research projects across all fields of academic study highlight the quality of the academic work being performed at Saarland University.
Saarland University offers a comprehensive support package for students preparing to start their careers or aiming to set up their own businesses. Guided by the Contact Centre for Technology Transfer (KWT), students can develop their business ideas, formally register their business ventures and learn to take their first steps as independent entrepreneurs.
The university has developed an outstanding profile in new technologies such as informatics, the biosciences or nanotechnologies. These developments highlight the university’s role as one of the largest employers in the region and its importance in promoting the transfer of technology and knowledge to the entire Saar-Lor-Lux region.
