  • Special features regarding teaching
    The aim of the course is to train students to become qualified engineers with a focus on the design of hardware and software systems in line with the requirements of industry and science. The positioning of computer engineering at the interface between general computer science and electrical engineering enables students to pursue a wide range of engineering activities in the field of design and realisation of embedded systems and their system-related programming after successful completion of their studies.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
