The Graduate School is part of the Department of Computer Science of Saarland University.

Saarbrücken is an international research-oriented center for computer science. Researchers at Saarland University cooperate closely with the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and the Center for Bioinformatics.


These internationally renowned research institutes are co-located on the Saarbrücken University Campus, neighbours to the Computer Science Department with its 20 chairs. All in all, more than 500 researchers in Computer Science have made their academic home in Saarbrücken. Many work on common projects funded by the German Government, the European Union or industrial partners.


In October 2007, Saarbrücken Computer Science was awarded two major grants in the framework of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments: the Cluster of Excellence on Multimodal Computing and the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science. Both grants were successfully renewed for a further five years until the end of 2017.
