The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is setting up a new innovative
Center for Informatics at the TUM Campus Heilbronn. A total of 9
professorships in the fields of computer engineering, theoretical and
practical computer science, endowed by the Dieter Schwarz Foundation,
are to be established.

The Heilbronn region is a strong and successful high-tech region in Europe
with many cooperation opportunities and a wide variety of educational
institutions. The professorship belongs to the Department of Informatics

Technology – and will be part of the TUM Campus Heilbronn, a new
vibrant center for research and teaching. With the Center for Digital Transformation
and the Global Center for Family Enterprise of the TUM School
of Management, TUM Campus Heilbronn provides a multitude of possibilities
for scientific collaborations in the areas of management, engineering
and digital transformation. The new Center for Informatics complements
the TUM Campus Heilbronn with a digital profile and bridges the divide
between management and digitalization. Its focus will be in information
engineering – a key component in the digital transformation of companies.
The responsibilities include research and teaching as well as the promotion

with the professorships in economics of the TUM School of Management
funded since 2018, the new professors will engage in research and teaching
at the interface of management and technology.

& Operating Systems with a focus on Heterogeneous Architectures,
Reduced Operating Systems and Microkernels. The teaching load includes
