The master’s degree in “Embedded Systems Design” provides training for the future field of embedded and smart systems . The global increase in digitalization and networking is affecting more and more devices in our everyday lives and turning them into “smart products”.

Examples of these intelligent and networked products are the intelligent thermostat or voice assistant in the smart home, the sporty smart watch for the health and fitness sector, the assistance systems for piloted driving in the “smart car”, or the networked robot in industrial automation.

All of these systems have built-in, modern computer technology . On the one hand, it includes intelligent components such as microprocessors, sensors, integrated software and optional real-time operating systems. On the other hand, components are required for networking , for example to be able to exchange signals and data via networks, or to set up larger system networks, or to be able to use cloud services.
