At the Hasso Plattner Institute, a new generation of scientific elites enjoy excellent study and research conditions as only a privately financed institute can offer. And yet, even with by these outstanding facilities and programs, students do not pay any tuition fees.
The number of professors (currently 9, soon to be 10) and other scientific instructors (about 40) stands in a very generous ratio to the number of students, currently around 450. Intensive personal advising is therefore guaranteed and provided to every student.
Each year, approximately 80 of the best-qualified applicants are accepted into the Bachelor Program. First-semester students are given a great start with the so-called studienbegleitendes Seminar. Students choosing to enter the Master's Program (the HPI accepts approximately 60 applicants per year), enjoy the personal advising of a professor who acts as their mentor. Students have easy access to free computer work stations in the labs and seminars. The HPI's various buildings and technical equipment are state-of-the-art.
