About us

If you have questions or concerns in research and teaching that are related to information technology (IT) or media technology, the Central IT and Media Services (ITM) is your competent partner for support in planning and implementing your ideas and projects.

The IMT works in a service-related and especially project-oriented manner, also in different time-limited groups. Under the overall management of Prof. Dr. Gudrun Oevel, it is functionally divided into five departments:

The central tasks in the areas of finance, personnel, procurement, inventory and controlling are attached to the management division, unless these tasks have been delegated to the division.

With its own central computers, large data storage capacity and a wide range of peripheral equipment, Ithe department infrastruture provides computing capacity and information services ato the users. In addition, the IT service center operates and maintains a constantly growing local network. A fast connection to the scientific network provides access to many computers at other universities as well as worldwide communication via the Internet.

Teh deaprtment Media maintains the media infrastructure in centrally managed lecture halls and seminar rooms. E-Learning offers such as lecture recording technologies, streaming as well as video and web conferences are also supported. Mobile media systems (e.g. photo or video cameras, audio recorders, notebooks) can be borrowed by teachers and students in the Service Center Media. The first principle in media use is help for self-help. In the Media Learning Center, which is located in the Service Center Media, employees promote the media-competent use of the available technology. In special cases (e.g. in third-party funded projects in which the IMT is involved) the Department Media produces videos, audios or photo series itself. A special feature of university teaching in the Federal Republic of Germany is the media practical training, in which students of media sciences and the degree programme Popular Music and Media are sensitised to professional media production. For the Studium Generale, the department Media has developed the offer of a TV and radio learning workshop.
