Institute for IS Research

Computer science-related and application- oriented

Information systems research is about the methods and techniques to support the design, the implementation and the commercial use of information and communication systems in businesses and administrations, as well as the resulting changes in organizational structures. Accordingly, there is a wide range of different issues and solution concepts which our individual research groups are focused on.


The professorships are supplemented by a private lecturer, Dr. Andreas Engel (Chief Information Officer of Cologne City Council), who is a honorary professor for our institute in the area of Informatics in Public Administration.
