Study centre com­puter sci­ence (LZI)

The study centre for computer science helps improving study conditions by being part of the program “Heterogenität als Chance” (“Heterogeneity as an opportunity”) within the quality pact for teaching.

It offers a place for collective and individual learning for all students in computer science at the university Paderborn.

For questions concerning computer science studies or learning- and working methods staff will be available at certain times.

It is also possible to arrange personal appointments for individual problems!

You have a specific request you want to discuss with someone from the study centre? Contact us! We answer requests in German and English.

The LZI Meta­verse

The LZI has been awarded the “Förderpreis der Lehre” and we now have the opportunity to set up our own Metaverse as a common meeting place and for digital teaching and learning. There will be places for socializing and places for learning communities in a digital open world.



I'd like to say, "Get your avatars ready!" but before we get started, there's a lot to do and the LZI relies on your support. Please visit the Metaverse details page and see what it's all about and what needs to be done. Feel free to contact me with your ideas and feedback.
