It especially wants to foster the communication between academia and industry, between research and application, and to foster the resulting transfer of knowledge, experience and judgement. It also engages in the definition of software engineering education and education options.

The Department (FB) is concerned with the design, construction and use of software systems and their development processes. This includes both basic theoretical issues and the challenges in the implementation in practice. Since software is produced and used by people, especially the empirical analysis of systems and processes is an important part.

A particular objective of the FB is to promote communication between research and application, between university and industry, and as a result of the transfer of knowledge, experience and assessment as well as the joint determination of education courses and training content.
