Master's degree in Computer Science

FK07 - Computer Science (Master of Science) full time / part time

Major field of study: Embedded Computing

Embedded Computing is concerned with software-controlled components in an overall
system that have special demands on equipment, structure and cost effectiveness.


Software Engineering disciplines represent a major factor for success in modern embedded systems.


The Master’s programme in Computer Science prepares you for a challenging and diverse career.


You gain the skills required to model, develop and integrate software for components in a
complex total system.


The special focus on embedded systems qualifies you for fields such as the automotive sector or robotics.


The following list provides a typical extract from the planned range of courses:


  • Embedded Systems
  • Embedded and Real?time Operating Systems
  • Program Verification and Testing
  • System Theory
  • Chip Cards
  • Mobile Networks
  • Fieldbus Systems
  • Graphical User Interfaces
  • Modelling and Formalisation
  • Robotics
  • Secure Systems
  • Real-time Simulation
  • Optimisation
  • Modelling and Simulation


Thanks to a flexible study plan you can influence your specialisation in the subject according to your interests within the context of the major field of study.


In addition, you have the opportunity to further develop your personal skills with a wide
range of interdisciplinary courses.


An obligatory individual discussion with the head of the programme will be arranged in order to find a balanced study plan for you, and allow you to get a qualified degree.


Note: registration takes place generally via the Master’s programme in Computer Science. The allocation to a major field of study takes place at the start of the semester.


If you are interested in this major field of study, please contact Prof. Dr. Max Fischer to discuss the application process and further organisational issues.
