DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Nowadays, a great many technical and engineering products are literally packed full with electrotechnical and automation components. Subsequently, the significance of control software is increasing to such an extent that interdisciplinary cooperation between the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science has become indispensible; today's technical systems must be conceived from the outset as integrated systems (software/hardware co-design). Thus, there is not only increasingly a need for graduiates of individual disciplines to obtain supplementary qualifications in order to make the cooperation feasible, but also a demand for a seperate generalsied qualification in interdisciplinary systems development.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Development, programming, maintenance of complexer facilities and systems in industrial enterprises, company organisation (work scheduling, technical EDP)

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates of the Bachelor programme can choose between direct transfer to gainful employment in the economy, industry, trade associations or public service. They may also apply to study on a Master's programme.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

No online courses currently available for this program.

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Students obtain a practice-relevant qualification in the three basic disciplines of electrical engineeering/information technology, computer science, production engineering/mechanical engineering and process engineering, although not in the same depth as would be the case in classical engineering departments.
Rather, students are trained by means of special lectures, work practicals, laboratory work and projects to develop their interdsiciplinary knowledge and approach: they learn to reflect on conventional solutions and how to replace these with what are often more cost-efficient and effective integrated systems. Besides the breadth and the integrative character of studies, each student has to choose a specialism and attend advanced courses in their respective field.

Course schedule

Major fields

The following specialisms are offered on the programme of Systems Engineering:

  • Automation technology and robotics

  • Systems Software/Embedded Systems

  • Production engineering

  • Space engineering

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

Practical

Students have to undertake an ten-week work practical.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

Das Studium stellt hinsichtlich Arbeitsdisziplin und Zeitaufwand hohe Anforderungen an die Studierenden. Wer diesen positiv gegenübersteht und eine Vorliebe für die naturwissenschaftlichen Fächer hat, wird das Studium erfolgreich abschließen.
