Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences


Research at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences is characterized by the triad of Human Being - Technology - Health.

Human Being - Technology - Health


The outstanding multidisciplinary research and a close cooperation with companies is reflected in an above-average level of external fund acquisition in comparison to the federal average.

The three institutes are equipped with the most modern research and teaching labs, where, for example, professional performance diagnostics, driving simulation, movement analysis, EEG and eye tracking measurements are done.

The institutes present current research projects in regular colloquia. The speakers are not only from the faculty itself, but from other institutes in Germany, Europe, and around the world.
