Nowadays computers or controllers are an integral part of almost all electronic products and devices in private and professional environments. Technology examples for the multiple, integrated and networked use of computers are modern consumer goods, vehicles, commercial aircraft and future-oriented automated production systems.
The engineering informatics course is a strongly application-oriented course with a systems engineering orientation, which should enable students to work at the interface between computer science and engineering. During the course, a wide range of knowledge in the areas of programming, computer algorithms and self-learning systems, pattern recognition, microcontroller and automation technology is imparted. This enables our graduates to understand and model the complex interactions between computer systems and their technical environment.
A special focus of the course is on solving tasks in smaller groups of students. In this context, competencies in the areas of group dynamics, communication, presentation of results and documentation are acquired and expanded. Students experience the training as a formative process that prepares them professionally, interdisciplinary and also personally for their professional life. You will learn how IT systems are structured, how they work together and how they process and exchange data. The numerous and constantly expanding services of the Internet, embedded microcontroller systems and software applications, IT security as well as control and automation technology determine the professional profile of an engineer in the field of engineering informatics. One of the main areas of study is the field of embedded (computer) systems and their interaction with the technical system that surrounds them. In addition to microprocessors and controllers, other digital hardware is also used in their development.
The engineering informatics course comprises seven semesters, including a 12-week practical phase in an industrial company or alternatively a semester abroad. In the advanced phase, students are provided with comprehensive knowledge in the areas of operating systems, embedded systems, software development, simulation of components and systems, machine learning and data mining, and high performance computing. In this section four elective modules can be chosen from an elective catalog. The seventh semester is concluded with the bachelor thesis.
Abitur or advanced technical college entrance qualification or previous education recognized as equivalent. Details can be found in the examination regulations.
The graduates of engineering informatics work in the area of ??overlap between informatics and engineering. You are successful as a developer, project manager or project leader, develop controller-based components, work as a software architect and developer, simulate and develop automatic controls for systems and plants, design secure computer networks or develop customer-specific solutions as a consultant for a management consultancy.
