Description

Computer and Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary major that is oriented especially to these new challenges. The program combines the classical engineering sciences such as electrical engineering and mechanical engineering with system engineering as well as computer science.

The program aims at a research-oriented deepening of the already acquired methodological and professional competence. The competences could be acquired in a university eduction and - as the case may be - in a professional training with a main subject of Computer and Systems Engineering.

The interdisciplinary and integrative education of the study, which is based on a solid mathematical and natural sciences education with knowledge in computer science, electrical engineering / electronics and control engineering, allows specializations with a wide application profile through the selection of optional courses. A graduate with a Master of Science in Computer and Systems Engineering can predominantly become operative in the development of technology-integrated systems in the field of hardware and software. Due to the profile of the training, he is able to work with computer scientist and engineer of other subjects. Through their scientific training, graduates are particularly qualified for research and science fields, in state entities as well as in industry research departments. They can also be active in the field of education and training.

The degree as a Master is the university standard degree in the major Computer and Systems Engineering and is equivalent to the previous diploma engineer.

Detailed subject overview: Computer and Systems Engineering (Master)

Specialisations

  • Industrial control and measurement technology
  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)
  • Automotive engineering, astronautics and space technology
  • Mobile robotics
  • Medical Technology
  • Embedded computer applications
  • Communication technology, consumer goods electronics
  • Complex systems in technology and environment

I decided to take this course of study because it is an excellent complement to my Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. In addition, the ratio between theory and practice is very well-balanced, which offers fantastic opportunities for entry into science and business.
