Statement of Positioning of Professorship

The purpose of this professorship is to perform software engineering research and teaching. Within software engineering, we pay particular attention to software product development with the goal of turning University innovation into software product startups. Together with our colleagues of the applied software engineering research and teaching alliance (PSWT), we cover the whole space of software engineering, including both standard software and client-specific projects. Within software engineering, the professorship emphasizes the open source paradigm, because it is the most innovative, cost-effective, and society-beneficial business model for developing open as well as proprietary software and knowledge known today.
