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.
With an enormous market share already today – but especially the even more impressive future prospects of “embedded” technology – you have a broad field of activity in a growing market.
With this degree you have a decisive competitive advantage, because embedded systems engineers are very much in demand in the IT and high-tech industries due to their combined expertise in hardware, software and system development.
You will be able to develop embedded and smart systems and also to integrate them optimally into an intelligent, networked product. This know-how is in demand in many areas of application – across all industries.
After completing this degree, you can choose to take a career in the following areas
-Driver assistance systems,
-Microchip and processor development,
-Industrial automation, Industry 4.0 and “Smart Factory”,
-Smart home and building automation,
-Internet of Things (IoT),
-Medical technology and telemedicine,
-Traffic telematics and IT systems for “Smart Cities”,
general software development,
-Energy technology, smart grids and green energy,
-Security technology with access and reporting systems,
-Embedded software and hardware for smart systems of all kinds.
