Expertise in modern computer technology & embedded systems design

What do smartphones, modern cars and robots have in common? They are ’smart‘ thanks to in-built computer technology that delivers functions once considered the stuff of sci-fi movies. Such smart computers depend on the perfect combination of dedicated software and hardware. This key symbiosis is the chief focus of our degree programme in Hardware-Software-Design. This full-time degree programme offers a thorough grounding in informatics, IT and electronics. Students will develop competence in the design and creation of embedded systems, software application and chip design.
