The Department of Computer Science (hereafter “UAI”) was established on the 1st of January 2009 as one of several new non-biological study programmes at the Faculty of Science. Since then it has gradually worked on the expansion and improvement of informatics and computer science within the faculty. The study programmes offered by the UAI have proven very popular among prospective students.

realizují projekt s názvem

Chytré sítě ve venkovských oblastech a MSP, č. 144

within the Program of cross-border cooperation Czech Republic - Bavaria Cíl EÚS 2014 – 2020

Main project goal: making current and future smart grid technology available to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and involving SMEs in the electricity consumption planning process. These technologies include, above all, smart meters, which make it possible to measure consumption at various levels (enterprise, building, room, appliance), building automation (home automation) and automation of the production process (Internet of Things, Industry 4.0). This will allow SMEs to use these technologies to reduce energy consumption and costs.

Museum Uploaded – Digital technology for cross-border interactive cooperation of museums

Project partners: Stadt Deggendorf, Prácheňské muzeum in Pisek, Technische Hochschule Deggendorf

Schedule: 1. 9. 2017 – 31. 8. 2020

Project budget: 1 830 330,39 EUR

The aim of the project is to create interdisciplinary, visitor-oriented, barrier-free and multimedia presentations of preserved cultural heritage in mutual cooperation of partners and at the same time to develop new applied technologies in the field of museology and archiving in the long run.

The leading partner of the project is the Municipal Museum in Deggendorf (Stadt Deggendorf - Stadtmuseum), other partners are the Prácheň Museum in Písek and the Technical University in Deggendorf. The project aims to innovate existing and develop completely new technologies, which will then be used for the first time in the field of museums. The Technical University in Deggendorf (Campus Freyung) and the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Department of Computer Science and Institute of Archival Science and PVH) are cooperating in the development of a new digital exhibition system. The museums in Deggendorf and Písek serve as model case studies. During the joint scientific work of both museums, topics and materials that touch on cultural heritage in a cross-border context will be collected and processed with the help of museum-didactic methods using digital strategies. Museums will function here as laboratories, in which various development approaches of universities to the presentation and visualization of museum materials are discussed together, their suitability for use is verified and feedback is captured. The peculiarity of this concept from the perspective of information technology and media production is the interconnection of digital media using modern server and Internet technologies, both for the needs of permanent exhibitions and for new forms of presentation with the aim of creating spatial and temporal data. An important part of this technical solution is the creation of a central data storage system that meets the requirements for long-term archiving of electronic data. This sustainable system will ensure continuous visualization of data and metadata in museum presentations and will enable the exchange of data with other institutions. These systems will be implemented in museums for the purpose of presenting information: the Deggendorf City Museum, one of the largest exhibition houses in Lower Bavaria, and the Prácheň Museum in Písek, a European museum awarded European prizes. and their equipment with modern technologies


Project name: PhotoStruk - Analysis of historical PHOTOgraphs for the virtual reconSTRUCTion of cultural heritage in the Czech-Bavarian borderland

Project number: 63

Main project goal: The main goal of the project is the presentation of extinct localities of Šumava thanks to virtual reconstructions from historical photographs. The project responds to the need to strengthen the common identity, which is formed by the historical interconnectedness of the population. It seeks to preserve and enhance the common heritage in a sustainable way. With available and innovative tools, it will help increase the attractiveness of the grant area through the preservation and enhancement of the common cultural and natural heritage.

Project Photostruk is funded by the European Union under the Cross-Border Cooperation Program Czech Republic - Free State of Bavaria EUS Objective 2014 - 2020 (Interreg V) from the European Regional Development Fund.


BarkBeeDet aims at investigating the detection of trees infested by bark beetle at an early stage (green-attack-stage) using methods of UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicle)-based imaging with recent sensors of different kinds. Recently, early stage detection is only possible by ground inspections, which is labour intensive and - depending on the terrain - sometimes difficult to maintain. UAV-based methods have the potential to capture larger areas systematically at relatively low effort. Our goal is to develop a complete workflow that comprises all methodological aspects from imaging to image analysis and the production of geo-information. Further, we expect deeper insight in the nature of bark beetle infestion and the necessary remote sensing methods to detect it at an early stage (necessary sensors, scale, mission dates, etc.) and to monitor the course of infestation. The project's test sites are located in the national parks Bayerischer Wald (Germany) and Sumava (Czech Republic).


The University of South Bohemia and Technical University in Deggendorf follow this trend and for this purpose they decided to join forces and cooperate to prepare common master's study program „Artificial intelligence and data science“.

Companies around the world and in all industries are increasingly relying on artificial intelligence (AI) and high-volume data processing to implement Industry 4.0. Optimization methods, in turn, are supported by economic and social structures in the border region, which is doubly true at a time of high labor market saturation.

Project description and goals

Universities in the CZ-BY border region, Deggendorf University of Technology and the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, together I am preparing a follow-up master's degree program in English on the topic of "AI and Data Science". The aim of the project is not only to prepare a joint study program, but also to overcome legal, linguistic and cultural barriers in both regions to regional cooperation in education. A central element of the project is the establishment of a state-of-the-art laboratory on both sides of the border, which will be an integral part of supporting education and research in this area. Within this laboratory, it will be possible to practically acquire skills and deepen knowledge of various AI methods thanks to the newly acquired HW and SW. An equally important task of the project is also to reduce cultural and social barriers and differences between countries. Long-term networks will be established between the two regions and, together with universities, regional companies will be actively involved in the preparation and implementation of the masters program and joint research activities, so as to ensure that the study program is in line with their needs and interests. The project will thus contribute to the development of the region over time by preparing graduates in an area that will become increasingly promising and, with the continued development of infrastructure, also more in demand among employers. Cooperation with the most developed federal state will thus create a strong bond in the field of higher education between regions, which will go beyond the time frame of the project in the long run.
