Clever ways of developing smart technologies
Communicating online all day long and everywhere, operating devices without touching them, closing the shutters at home via an app while away from home, checking the content of the fridge online, securing a parking space with a power charging station for the electric car outside the 3D cinema thanks to valet parking, and, when you enter the pleasantly air-conditioned loft in the evening, soft light welcomes you and the food ordered online during the day was already delivered in an ice box. Besides imagination and vision, the time factor plays an important role for the further development of new intelligent systems and their integration into the environment: in other words, speed to get products and applications ready for the market. In this process, algorithms are the basis, while programming, simulation processes, modelling, prototyping, and design are the tools.
The degree course
All of these are important aspects in the Intelligent Systems Design degree course, which prepares students in lectures, seminars and practical courses (some of which are held in English) for an international employment in software development, mobile computing, mechanical engineering, in the production of electrical appliance, medical engineering, in the automotive or aerospace industry and in the communications or energy sector in particular. The study program imparts fundamentals of computer sciences with an interdisciplinary approach and directly relates them to the application. Practical modules, a practical semester and project work prepare the students for their professional life. Another important aspect during the studies is the subject of business formation as an option after the bachelor's degree.
Major fields of study:
- System Simulation
- Embedded Systems
- Mobile Computing
After successful graduation, you can continue your academic career with a master’s degree course or you start your practical career and work as an engineer in a company. Another option is: you go freelance in the fields of software development, mobile computing or as an embedded systems engineer. In the industry, such experts are required in branches like communication, electrical engineering and electronics, industry and consumer electronics, machinery and plant engineering, in the automotive and aerospace industry, automation engineering, robotics, microsystems and precision engineering, or medical technology.
Whether in your own business or as a globally operating industrial engineer, many opportunities will be open to your professional career.
