Public research university Saarland University is situated in Saarbrücken, the state capital of Germany's Saarland. In collaboration with France, it was established in Homburg in 1948. It is divided into six colleges, each of which focuses on a different area of science. The institution was acknowledged as Germany's premier center for computer science expertise in 2007. The Saarland University is renowned for its work in the fields of computer science, nanotechnology, medicine, politics, and the law. There are a number of specialized research institutes located on the university campus and in the neighbourhood. For businesses primarily involved in information technology, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, the university scientific park offers a start-up incubator and a technology/research transfer environment. Saarland University offers the wide range of fields indicative of a traditional universitas litterarum through its multiple degree programs, which range from Diplom, Magister, Ph.D., state examinations to, increasingly, bachelor and master degrees. The more traditional subjects such as business administration and economics, law and medicine are just as much a part of Saarland University as the new degree programmes that have developed from modern interdisciplinary collaborations, and which reflect the increasing demand for such qualifications in today's job market. Bioinformatics/Computational Biology, Mechatronics Engineering, Micro- and Nanostructured Materials, Computer and Communications Technology, historically oriented Cultural Studies, and French Cultural Science and Intercultural Communication are a few of the new courses that fall under this category. The Saarland University and international partner universities offer integrated degree programs that can result in the awarding of a joint degree in the subjects of business administration, physics, chemistry, materials science, and the interdisciplinary program "Cross-border Franco-German Studies." Saarland University provides prospective teachers of geography and history with an integrated bilingual (French-German) programme in the field of teacher preparation.
