Institute for Scientific Computing

Welcome to the web page of the Scientific Computing group at the Computer Science Department at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.

The Scientific Computing group was installed when Professor Dr. Bischof was called to the TU Darmstadt. As part of this chair we offer teaching activities on parallel computers, parallel programming, and computer science foundations of simulation technology.

An overview of our research activities is available here. Furthermore, we are always interested in students looking for thesis topics and research assistants.

Office Location

You find us in the Karl Plagge-Haus at campus Stadtmitte, building S1|22, Alexanderstraße 2, 64283 Darmstadt.
