Embedded Systems Design Master's Degree Programme, full-time

In-depth know-how in the development of hardware & software, sensors, systems networking

Embedded Systems are an integral part of many modern-day devices, from smartphones to cars and robots. Without them, there would also be no smart homes and smart cities. Developing those complex, integrated computers requires a broad set of skills: expertise in the development of hardware and software, sensors, and systems networking. Our full-time, interdisciplinary Master’s degree programme in Embedded Systems Design covers all those aspects. Students choose two of the following three specialisation pathways: System-on-Chip Design, Embedded Computing (Embedded Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems), and Systems & Signals. They will also be able to develop teamworking, leadership and project management skills, and select from a wide range of elective modules for further specialisation.

Note for applicants: The main language of tuition on this study programme is German, although some modules may be offered in English.
