Über das Studium:

Systems Design is a Master Degree program in engineering focusing on the design and implementation of complex systems. Systems Design graduates are able to understand, develop, and modify complex technical systems in the fields of electronics and mechatronics.

Course Information
Students acquire detailed knowledge of mathematics, informatics, technological physics, control systems, numeric processes, circuit design, robotics and systems theory.

These qualifications allow graduates to take up leading positions in research and development in a variety of fields.

Specialist Areas
Students can choose from five specialist areas to focus on after their first semester:

  •     Embedded Systems
  •     Remote Systems
  •     Sensor Systems
  •     Control Systems
  •     Mechatronic Systems

The first semester is followed by two semesters of courses that are specific to the chosen field of specialization (see module overview). In the fourth semester the Master thesis will be written in conjunction with a work placement.

“Systems Design” is an engineering program that offers a wide, advanced theory based education for designing systems. Systems Design graduates are able to understand, develop, and modify complex technical systems in the fields of Electronics and Mechatronics. Their skills include the designing and implementing of complex technical systems with special regards to a holistic design in an earlier phase of planning and conceptualizing. The focus of the degree programme is the training of self-dependent engineers who have special knowledge in areas such as Embedded Systems, Electronics, Mechatronics, IT or Control Engineering.

With Data Science being a core competence of Systems Design graduates, the Master program prepares students for a successful and powerful career in engineering as well as for a track in academics and research. Graduates work as planning, development, system, plant and production engineers as well as in management and leading positions. Skilled Systems Designers are in high demand of an industry that offers a wide variety of occupational areas.
