group pictureThe MARS Group is part of the research environment of the Department of Computer Science at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. We have an open-space office with 13 fixed work desks on the 4th floor (room 4.80D) of Berliner Tor 7. Both bachelor and master students work here within the scope of their theses and/or a student employment.
