Industry and its requirements are changing dramatically. Advances in medical engineering or the automobile industry, for example, which used to be determined by mechanics and electronics, are
nowadays generated mainly by software.
Embedded systems, such as braking and stability control systems, take the form of complex
software solutions, but training in this subject area generally lags behind. Today's engineers often
lack the necessary level of training in the development of complex software solutions.
The growing complexity of reliable and powerful software for use in embedded systems creates
new challenges for development engineers and managers. Technical methods and tools have
advanced in recent years. Engineers of embedded systems therefore need to obtain additional
training in software engineering.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE offers a unique part-time
Master's course, the majority of which takes the form of distance learning from the Distance and
International Studies Center (DISC) at the University of Kaiserslautern. The course is geared to
international participants and is therefore conducted entirely in English.
»Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)«
The program ist designed for professionals working in the field of software development who need
to acquire advanced knowledge of emerging technologies and who wish to broaden their software
engineering skills by pursuing graduate level education in software engineering for embedded
systems. Formal requirements: Graduate degree in engineering discipline or computer science or
in a natural science (e.g., physics).
The next Master of Engineering in Embedded Systems course starts October 1, 2013. The closing
date for applications is August 30, 2013.
