The interdisciplinary nature of research at the INI and the diverse disciplinary background of INI researchers are reflected in our teaching program. We offer courses, lab classes, and seminars that cover a wide range of areas from mathematics, computer science, robotics, computer vision, to neuroscience and psychology. See the listings under "Courses", organized by winter vs. summer term. The INI is responsible for a cross-disciplinary degree program in Applied Computer Science ("Angewandte Informatik"), whose Dean of Studies is Prof. Dr. Laurenz Wiskott. Many departments of the RUB contribute to that program, which is presented on a separate set of web pages (in German). The INI also offers a special Graduate degree Neurcomputing that can be earned by taking INI classes beyond a regular degree. At the INI we enjoy teaching students from many other disciplines including physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, psychology, biology, cognitive science, philosophy, linguistics, and others. In some cases, students take our courses as electives. In other cases, we have special offers (e.g., lab classes for biologists) or are a fixed part of a degree program (e.g., cognitive science). Under "Bachelor and Master Thesis Projects" and "Study Projects" you find our offers of topics for such projects to students from different disciplines.
