New, interdisciplinary degree programme in Cognitive Science to commence in the winter semester
Cognitive Science is founded on the basic assumption that the human mind is essentially an information processing system. It uses algorithms to understand and explain human intelligence. From the 2019/20 winter semester, Cognitive Science is available to study as Bachelor’s and Master's degree programmes at TU Darmstadt. The Director of the Centre for Cognitive Science, Professor Constantin Rothkopf, explains what the students can expect.
European University “UNITE!” is coming
TU Darmstadt together with six universities successful in Initiative competition
TU Darmstadt is awarded the title of “European University” by the EU Commission, together with six European technical universities. The alliance known as “UNITE!” will receive five million Euro of funding for three years. The aim is to create a trans-European campus.
Research at the Institute of Parallel Programming
Computer scientists from TU Darmstadt are using a trick from astrophysics to predict the rewiring of nerve cells in the brain. The aim of their model is to support neurosurgeons and advance artificial intelligence.
More power for the green transformation
Research at the Institute of Political Science
International treaties set the framework but the future of our planet is decided largely in the nation states. Political scientists at TU Darmstadt analyse climate protection policy in the global South.
Freezing living cells under the light mircoscope
Professor Thomas Burg freezes living cells and organisms under the light microscope without a time delay. His aim: a better link between light and electron microscopy.
Double perspective on sustainable urban development
Joint degree master’s programme at TU and Vietnamese-German University
TU Darmstadt is offering its first joint degree master’s programme, which will start in the winter semester 2019/20. "Sustainable Urban Development" (SUD) will be jointly supported by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences at TU Darmstadt and the Vietnamese-German University in Ho Chi Minh City. Professor Hans-Joachim Linke from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences explains what prospective students need to know about this special master's degree programme.
International Conference on Machine Learning 2019
TU the only university from Germany among the Top 50 contributing universities
Machine learning experts from around the world will gather at the 36th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) to present the latest advances in machine learning understanding. The International Conference on Machine Learning is one of the most prestigious conferences for peer-reviewed research in Machine Learning, alongside NeurIPS, ICLR and others. And ICML is of the most relevant to Deep Learning (DL), although NeurIPS has a longer DL tradition and ICLR, being more focused, has a higher DL density.
Making sense of linguistic data
New Master's degree programme Data and Discourse Studies
Ever larger amounts of data are being generated in science and industry. Experts are needed in market analysis or communication departments, who can understand and process this data and convert it into comprehensible texts that are appropriate for specific target groups. Marcus Müller, TU Professor of Digital Linguistics, explains in an interview the new English Master's degree programme in Data and Discourse Studies.
Security and privacy vulnerabilities
When your Apple device allows file stealing, reveals first name and blacks out
International research team discovers security and privacy vulnerabilities in Apple’s iOS and macOS. The researchers strongly recommend users of Apple devices to install updates.
Nuclear “magic numbers” collapse beyond the doubly magic Nickel 78
New Publication in “Nature” / Scientists of TU Darmstadt involved
Scientists from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Research in Japan and an international collaboration network with a strong participation of scientists from Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany), the University of Tokyo and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, have used the center’s heavy ion accelerator, the RI Beam Factory, to demonstrate that nickel 78, a neutron-rich “doubly magic” isotope of nickel with 28 protons and 50 neutrons, still maintains a spherical shape that allows it to be relatively stable despite the large imbalance in the number of protons and neutrons.
The mission continues
TU Darmstadt and ESA conclude cooperation agreement
TU Darmstadt and the European Space Agency (ESA) will in future be cooperating even more closely. TU President Professor Hans Jürgen Prömel and ESA General Director Professor Johann-Dietrich Wörner have signed a corresponding “Memorandum of Collaboration”.
The laboratory inside the microscope
Enormous progress in electron microscopy
Darmstadt researchers led by Leopoldo Molina-Luna observe the tiniest of electronic components in action. Not only can their electron microscope image individual atoms; it can also produce, heat and electronically control the sample.
City without barriers
Research on universal designs for public spaces
Many people do not feel at ease moving through their city. Martin Knöll and his team from the department of architecture are developing new pproaches to urban planning. The various needs of pedestrians are the focus.
Upgrade for climate protection
Research at the Institute of Energy Systems and Energy Technology
A research team at TU Darmstadt has developed a process for the separation of carbon dioxide that uses surplus electricity from waste incineration.
The road to the car with a true environmental profile
TU Darmstadt develops intelligent operating concepts for the ‘Vehicle 5.0’
The research association ‘Vehicle 5.0’ focuses on vehicles that continuously learn from operating data and optimize themselves. The knowledge-based approach should also improve the life cycle assessment.
