The degree in technical informatics prepares you to help shape the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 through intelligent IT systems. The intelligent processing of information plays a major role in this. That is why you will be optimally prepared for your career in the areas of focus “autonomous systems” or “cyber-physical systems”.
In automobiles, in consumer products, in manufacturing plants, in computer networks, in space stations, in short: information is recorded, processed and passed on everywhere. The area of ??technical informatics provides the necessary technologies and develops solutions for the future. The IT industry has the highest growth rates and the long-term career prospects are excellent.
In the technical informatics course, experienced professors from research and practice impart everything necessary for a successful career start. We attach great importance to a solid education in mathematics, software technology and computer science. This broad education is the basis for further specialization in the field of autonomous systems or cyber-physical systems.
The high practical relevance of the course deepens the knowledge acquired. Project work is carried out in small groups in well-equipped laboratories. An integrated practical semester prepares you for a smooth entry into the profession. The skills you have learned so far will be put to practical use there.
From the 6th onwards, the Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering is divided into the two main areas of study: autonomous systems and cyber-physical systems.
Autonomous systems are able to solve complex tasks. This ability is based on algorithms and methods of artificial intelligence. Autonomous systems learn based on data. You can act largely without human intervention, even in unknown situations. In order for this to be possible, autonomous systems have to solve a large number of tasks reliably and independently. They have to absorb and process information, make and execute decisions and communicate with other autonomous systems or people. The particular challenge is to do all of this in unfamiliar situations and poorly structured environments. One example of this is autonomous driving. The main contents of the Autonomous Systems major are therefore:
Sensors and actuators
Processing of signals
Machine vision and learning
Safety and Security
Cyber-physical systems consist of mechanical components, software and modern information technology. By networking the individual components via networks such as the Internet, infrastructures can be controlled, regulated and monitored. Cyber-physical systems are based on sensors, actuators, networked software and cloud-based services. Sensors deliver measurement data from the physical world. They pass this on to a service that processes the data via networks. This results in control data that the software forwards to actuators via the communication network. Cyber-physical systems are characterized by a high level of complexity. They are used, for example, for the implementation of intelligent power grids, modern production systems or in medical technology.
Sensors and actuators
Processing of signals
Embedded Systems Design and Communication
After completing this degree, you will work as a specialist or manager on engineering issues in the field of information technology. The methods and skills you have acquired enable you to solve new, complex technical problems independently and in a team . You implement software systems with interfaces to machines and systems on the one hand and to the people who use them on the other.
You will find your challenge in the planning, development and programming of embedded systems in areas such as B. automotive and aviation technology, consumer goods industry, automation industry.
With this focus you will work on important questions related to the ability to perceive the operational environment , the action planning based on it and the action execution for autonomous systems .
With this focus, you will work on issues relating to the networking of embedded systems and the resulting challenges, such as security against unauthorized access. You have the necessary knowledge to be able to implement complex, distributed real-time systems in a methodically sound manner.
