Embedded systems are integrated computers that are embedded in technical systems. They are not immediately recognisable as computers, but perform complex tasks. They are programmed to monitor, control and regulate devices or processes. To do this, they have to process a lot of data and signals. They use of embedded systems is an important basis for progress in many branches of industry. In this field of study, you will acquire the knowledge and skills you need for the development, programming and application of embedded systems.


Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are regularly revolutionising the computer industry. At the same time, positioning services such as GPS and Galileo as well as navigation solutions have grown to become key technologies. The field of study takes up these future topics. In addition to the fundamentals of natural sciences and geography, this degree programme also provides you with the necessary information technology knowledge and skills to be able to process spatial data and develop solutions for mobile devices.


Internet of Things is a field of study for inventors and makers. Interactive systems and the Internet of Things have long since become part of everyday life. For example, when we use smartphones, virtual assistants, chatbors, smart homes, etc., we come into contact with both. Ultimately, people should be optimally supported by technology in the most diverse areas of life. To realise this, computer scientists with specific knowledge are needed. The Internet of Things degree programme makes you an IT specialist who can later work on innovative technologies, develop products or bring your own idea to the market.
