Cope with complex and cross-circular systems
The complexity of technical systems is steadily increasing: Our society uses more devices than ever to improve everyday life, while at the same time multiple industries are searching for new ways to enhance their processes through the means of digitalization. Nowadays, engineers have to cope with complex and cross-circular systems rather than with clearly assigned single components. Many businesses are already struggling to find sufficient experts who can navigate the intricate challenges of new emerging technologies. The Master Degree program “Systems Design” offers special opportunities for those who seek to accept these challenges.
The program spans over four semesters and includes a wide variety of courses that prepare for a career in engineering. Students acquire detailed knowledge of Mathematics, Systems Theory, Informatics, Control Systems, Data Analysis, and Circuit Design. Modern technical developments are also key for mastering the requirements of Systems Design: Data Science, Robotics, Circuit Design, Sensors, and Automatic Control are being discussed with great detail over the course of the program.
“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 program 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 for an industry that offers a wide variety of occupational areas.
