The history of the University of Innsbruck, currently ranked the best Austrian university by Times Higher Education, dates back to 1669. It offers a complete set of academic curricula and currently counts 25000 students. Founded in 2001, the Department of Computer Science is currently expanding and is highly active in research.
Innsbruck is home to about 30000 students who imprint a distinctive, international student atmosphere upon this beautiful city of 120000. Beautifully located in the Tyrolean Alps, on the Inn river and surrounded by peaks of up to 2718m, Innsbruck offers outstanding recreational and cultural value all around the year.
