In order to build models of human cognition they carefully describe human behavior using methods from experimental psychology but they also use tools from computer science and mathematics to formally describe the underlying information processing. As cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence share the common goal to understand the information processing that underlies intelligence, courses from these two disciplines form the core of the Cognitive Science curriculum at TU Darmstadt.
They are supplemented by introductory courses to neuroscience, linguistics, and philosophy. Compared to other Cognitive Science programs there is a much stronger focus on computer science, mathematics and AI at TU Darmstadt.
The Cognitive Science program is organized by the Department of Human Sciences in close cooperation with several other departments — Computer Science, Biology, and History and Social Sciences — to cover the full interdisciplinary spectrum of Cognitive Science.
