The idea was to establish a facility within Germany's university system that focused primarily on research, a research and teaching unit, as well as combining science and practice. In November 1969, the University of Bielefeld initially commenced lecturing with three faculties - Mathematics, Law and Sociology. Today, the University of Bielefeld is divided into 13 faculties.
Focusing on bioinformatics, biotechnology and cognitive informatics/intelligent systems, the Technical Faculty offers innovative courses of study and research possibilities at interfaces between humans, technology and biology.
Focal points of project:
The University of Bielefeld develops methods for realising extensive skills for the two-handed manipulation of everyday objects in close cooperation with the possibility of flexible adjustment through learning.
