DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

 Nowadays many technical products are highly equipped with embedded and control components. The awareness and importance of the software and hardware co-design is increasing and technical products have to be planned as one integrated system from the very beginning. Therefore, a discipline combining the knowledge of electrical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering is becoming essential in engineering and the need for qualifications in the three mention fields arises following the goal of interdisciplinary system development thus forming successful individuals.

The Systems Engineering bachelor´s programme at the University of Bremen is supported by three faculties:

  • Faculty 01: Physics / Electrical Engineering,
  • Faculty 03: Mathematics / Computer Science and
  • Faculty 04:  Production Engineering - Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering (leading faculty).

Thus, the interdisciplinary study programme offers qualifications in the three basic disciplines of electrical engineering, computer science and production/mechanical engineering. Right from the beginning of their study students learn to observe a technical system holistically as one unit, they learn interdisciplinary ways of observing systems. They study in an interdisciplinary working environment from the very start.

This bachelor´s programme offers four specializations, giving students the opportunity to apply and expand their theoretical knowledge of the three basic disciplines with specific knowledge and skills in one or more areas:

  • Automation technology and robotics,
  • Embedded systems and system software,
  • Production engineering or
  • Space engineering.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Bachelor graduates in the subject of Systems Engineering are able to consider the system as one whole unit. Their knowledge and skills in the three disciplines (electrical engineering, computer science and production/mechanical engineering) is deepened and applied in one specialization area. Thus, graduates in the Systems Engineering bachelor´s programme have a very broad field of work e.g. development, programming and maintenance of complex facilities and systems in industry. Furthermore, they can apply their knowledge and skills in companies and organizations by managing scheduling or working in the technical EDP area.

In addition, the programme offers an excellent preparation for further master studies in e.g. the Systems Engineering
master's programme at the University of Bremen.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

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

Possibilities for additional qualifications

The Systems Engineering bachelor´s degree qualifies individuals for a further master´s study in e.g. the Systems Engineering master's programme at the University of Bremen.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

The bachelor's programme comprises 210 credits (Credit Points, CP) according to the European Credit Transfer System (a standard study period of 7 semesters).

Course content:

In addition to the basic knowledge and skill set in the three core disciplines of the programme (electrical engineering, computer science and production/mechanical engineering) which are anchored in the first semesters of the curriculum, students learn interdisciplinary ways of thinking and working. They experience and learn to apply structured and methodological approaches to the given technical problems. They learn to rethink conventional solutions and replace them with often cheaper and more powerful integrated systems.

The Systems Engineering bachelor's programme offers students the opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge in one specialization area:    

  • Automation technology and robotics,    
  • Embedded systems and system software,    
  • Production engineering and   
  • Space engineering.

An obligatory part of the curriculum is the practicum (internship). It can be completed in Germany or abroad and lasts 10 weeks.

Course schedule

Typical course types

In addition to the classical course forms (e.g. lectures, exercises, laboratories), the student´s scientific work and team-oriented working methods are emphasised.


Major fields

The upper semesters of the curriculum allow students to gain in-depth knowledge in one of the four specialization areas:

  • Automation technology and robotics,
  • Embedded systems and system software,
  • Production engineering or
  • 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

An obligatory part of the curriculum is the practical (internship). This module can be completed in Germany or abroad and lasts 10 weeks.

Study abroad

A stay abroad and/or a semester abroad is not an obligatory part of the curriculum, but it is possible and welcome.

Exams forms

Examinations are carried out in forms according to the official exam regulation of the University of Bremen (the AT MPO) and the subject-specific examination regulations (the BPO).

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

This programme is aiming for students with outstanding skills, preference and fondness for natural and technical sciences.
