BSc Computer Engineering
The bachelor degree program in Computer Engineering teaches you a scientifically sound and methodically high-quality, broad-based and permanent knowledge-based basic education, which opens up the whole range of networked embedded computer systems to you.
What are the contents of the program?
The bachelor program Computer Engineering is dedicated to all aspects of networked embedded computer systems. Applications are found not only in “classic” cyber-physical systems such as medical devices, automation systems, cars and airplanes, but—in the age of the “Internet of Things”—also increasingly in devices of our daily lives. Regardless of the primarily IT-oriented approach, working with networked embedded systems requires an interdisciplinary basic education that ranges from solid mathematical and physical fundamentals to microelectronics and signal processing to control engineering and is therefore particularly suitable for above-average talented and interested students.
Which qualifications do I acquire?
The program teaches you basic knowledge in the field of computer science and a critical understanding of their theories and principles as well as a generally profound basic and methodological knowledge in algorithms and data structures, architecture of computer and software systems, mathematics, probability theory, statistics, human-machine interaction and programming paradigms.
In addition to the core competencies of computer science, you will acquire an interdisciplinary basic education through the bachelor program Computer Engineering, which ranges from mathematical and physical fundamentals via microelectronics, signal processing and control engineering to hardware and software engineering of fault-tolerant embedded real-time systems.
In the course of your studies, you will develop important professional and personal skills that will boost your creativity and innovation potential, identify, analyze and solve problems, and enable you to master challenges in a critical, team-based and responsible manner.
What can I do with my degree?
As a graduate you are internationally competitive to work in areas such as the automotive and aerospace industries or the Internet of Things. You are internationally competitive for further qualification in the context of a relevant master or doctoral degree program, but also for working in international business. Professional fields of activity include, for example, application engineering at the interface of software hardware, advanced development tasks in the field of embedded / cyber-physical systems (such as VLSI design, microcontroller / DSP software development, design of reliable systems) and supporting tasks in the relevant research environment.
