The research interests of the department cover the whole scope of computer science from theory to practice and from basic research to applications, and it has a high international standard.
The department offers two formal grant-based postgraduate programmes
(Ph.D. Programmes) which run for three years and lead to the Doctor of
Today the stage of development of such architectures shows an imbalance between the great progress in the development of hardware with a huge processing capacity and useful tools which are able to use advantages of modern hardware. Besides, there is a huge demand for parallel and distributed applications. For example, distributed office systems, large applications concerning computer aided manufacturing, distributed multimedia systems, distributed information services, operation systems, error tolerant parallel computers, and heterogeneous and distributed databases.
In our grant-based programme, we work on a wide range of problems in the area of parallel and distributed systems attempting to find methods and computer-aided tools for the applicant.

Besides these two formal programmes, there is an informal one: each professor individually offers research topics for Ph.D. theses. For further information consult the www page http://www.inf.tu-dresden.de/welcome.html.
