HPI Foyer

Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI)
For both education and research, the HPI has come to symbolize scientific excellence and practical relevance, and sets great value upon close cooperation with industry.

The research focus at HPI is highly complex IT systems which today provide the basis of numerous companies. Thus, research at HPI takes place in close cooperation with the private sector. The ten research teams at the HPI enjoy excellent working conditions, and have repeatedly proven capable of outstanding research achievements. As all research projects are integrated into current teaching, students benefit greatly from HPI's research. HPI has fostered numerous cooperative initiatives with other universities and scientific institutions, including Standford University in Palo Alto, USA.

The nine research groups (faculties) and the School of Design Thinking, each led by one professor, offer a wide range of topics:

  • Enterprise platform and integration concepts
  • Internet technologies and systems
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Computer-assisted systems
  • Operating systems and middleware
  • Business process technology
  • Software architectures
  • Information systems
  • System analysis and modeling
  • School of Design Thinking
