Today, informatics play an increasingly important role in research and development as operational procedures can no longer be developed and optimised without software solutions. As a result, the opportunities for computer scientists on the labor market are promising: the demand for them is rising. While most of them are in regular employment, there is also a number of self-employed computer scientists. They can find employment in companies of nearly all industries, in public administration, and in research. There, they develop, program, and modify hard- and software programmes in particular in connection with complex information, communication and control systems.
Computer scientists examine, for instance, existing IT systems for their security and effectiveness. In particular, they apply their knowledge and skills to IT project management. Typical other tasks include the realisation of new software projects in the form of technical reproduction of administrative tasks and production control. Developing databases and web-based information systems may also be part of their job description.
In times of global networking, the security of information technology is becoming increasingly important. TU scientists are dealing with questions of IT security in the profile area “ – CYSEC” and at the Cybersecurity at TU Darmstadt, among others.

The research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Technical University of Darmstadt is internationally excellent. By providing the necessary interdisciplinarity to develop the potential of AI broadly and optimally, and thus catering to the latter's high social and economic significance, it distinguishes itself from other academic locations in Germany. AI research at Technical University of Darmstadt is strongly intertwined with cognitive science, which is bundled in the . Centre for Cognitive Science
