The central tenet of Cognitive Science at Darmstadt University of Technology is that the human mind is essentially an information processing system. 


Cognitive Science at Darmstadt University of Technology and artificial intelligence form the core of the Cognitive Science curriculum at Technical University of Darmstadt.

Learning outcomes

In order to understand human thinking, cognitive scientists try to to understand the various ways that minds process information to produce intelligent behavior. In order to build models of human cognition they carefully describe human behavior using methods from experimental psychology but they also use tools from computer science to formally describe the underlying information processing.
