Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by technical systems so unobtrusive and natural that we rarely notice them anymore. They have become ingrained parts of our lives, seamlessly blending into the world around us. The applications for these technical systems are as diverse as they are innovative: mobile phones, entertainment devices, technical healthcare solutions (such as health monitoring devices), systems for managing the modern household, traffic monitoring and control systems, automated driving assistance and safety systems (airbags, ESP, ABS) and industrial production control systems (‘smart’ factories, industry 4.0) are just a few noteworthy examples.
Though they come in all shapes and sizes, these systems all share a common basis: a highly complex interaction between hardware and software solutions. They are capable of collecting data from their surroundings via sensors, processing this data, exchanging it with other systems and ultimately deriving decisions and actions from it. Oftentimes this complex process is broken down into smaller parts, for example with a network of less expensive/efficient devices gathering large amounts of data, which is sent to powerful central servers for further analytical and decision-making processes.
New applications for these kinds of systems are developed on a near daily basis, which in turn pushes the boundaries for the sensor technology, applications, networks and software these systems rely on. Does this kind of innovative, cutting edge technology interest you? Do you enjoy breaking down and solving difficult technical problems? Then our Infotronic Systems Engineering (Infotronic = Information and Electronic) programme is right for you. Our goal is to train future engineers who can thrive in the many exciting and future-oriented areas of engineering systems: from sensor technology and the pre-processing of information; to collecting, transferring and distributing data; to automatic data processing and analysis. We will impart to you the necessary skills and expertise from computer and data science, electrical engineering and signal processing, so that you graduate with a versatile technical background for your future career.
With our type of training you will be prepared for both current and future industry challenges, ready to seize new opportunities and play a role in shaping the future of technology. This degree programme was conceptually designed to provide a solid and versatile technical background that not only stresses practical relevance, but also employs an interdisciplinary, application-oriented approach with a strong international current, in part due to the use of English as the language of instruction, for example.
In your first four semesters you will acquire sound knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer science, enhance your subject knowledge in mathematics and be introduced to scientific research methods.
The following semesters will then provide in-depth study. During this time you will also be able to more sharply define your knowledge by choosing elective courses which suit your interests and career plans. The range of electives includes areas such as artificial intelligence, computer security, drones and even business administration. An interdisciplinary project will allow you to carry out an in-depth investigation of a topic of your choosing.
In the 6th semester you will have the choice of either studying abroad or doing a practical semester.
In the 7th semester you will finish your studies by submitting your bachelor‘s thesis, holding a presentation on your research.
