In the national context, via its extensive co-operations, the
field of computer engineering is connected with institutions
at universities and in companies in the NRW region as well as
in other parts of Germany.
In the international domain, since 1997, on behalf of the faculty,
Prof. Hunger has set up and developed numerous international
co-operations with main focuses in Asia and the USA, which were
in line with the internationalisation of lore and the development
of an international image of the faculty.
At the same time, these international activities have also
lead to the development of directions of work within the domain
of computer engineering. In particular, two outposts of the
faculty under the name of „Mercator bureau“ could
be furnished and used at the partner universities in Malaysia
The form and content of the existent regional co-operations
are differing, but very fruitful for the widely invested research
activities of the field. They range from the common mentoring
of doctorate students during their industrial research, through
the common development and carrying out of bigger research projects
with the industry, to the development of courses tailor-made
for the industry.
For the works on the development of international course offerings,
as well as on the comprehension of engineering work and education
in the international context, the Mercartor offices in Southeast
Asia are of particularly great value.
Furthermore, numerous small „research and development
projects “ in the domains of software and hardware development
as well as consultancy and market analysis were conducted in
collaboration with the industry. Those interested in a collaboration,
please refer to the head of the department Prof.
Dr.-Ing. Axel Hunger .
