Specializations

INFOTECH students can select from a number of Majors or Specializations.

Profiles of the specializations are given here:

 

Major Communications Engineering and Media Technology

CEMT (Communications Engineering and Media Technology) is a rapidly growing segment best reflected by the developments of the Internet, broadband, mobile and satellite networks, by competitive environments and deregulation.

Experts for strategic product definitions, service provision or network operation must not only be familiar with advanced methods and technologies in communications and computer science, but also need some basic knowledge of business and legal aspects.

The implementation of this major/specialization within the Master program INFOTECH has quite a number of common modules - by intension - both in the Core and Supplementary fields of lecture courses, in labs and seminars and definitely in the Master Thesis project with the other majors of the program.

Major Embedded Systems

Automobiles, telecommunications, computer peripherals, aeronautics and space technology as well as medical equipment need sophisticated control by so-called embedded systems.

'Embedded Systems Engineering' covers all aspects of the design and application of these systems. Analogue, mixed-signal and digital circuit design, RF-technology, actuators and sensors form the basis at the physical level. Methods for hardware design on a higher, more abstract level comprise HDL supported logic design and CAD techniques. With respect to the increasing use of microprocessors and micro controllers, computer science and software engineering techniques complete the curriculum.

Major Micro- and Optoelectronics

Micro technologies are basic technologies for innovative engineering solutions and integration of technical intelligence in future products. The miniaturization of mechanical and electronic elements and their integration by embedded information processing to micro systems has the potential for a new generation of products in a wide spectrum of applications.

'Micro- and Optoelectronics' deals with materials and processes, technologies and devices, device physics and modeling, process and device simulation, circuit design and application, system design and packaging, characterization and testing, quality and reliability of microelectronic and optoelectronic devices, circuits and systems. These topics are complemented by enabling technologies and application technologies out of the communication, software and internet world.

Major Computer Hardware/Software Engineering

Computer systems are widely-used in Information Technology in very different application domains like measurement systems in industrial or scientific environments and factories, control systems, data management systems, computer networks, high performance computing systems etc. Typically, these systems are based on computer hardware and software components the interaction of which is the key factor for the system performance and capabilities. Therefore understanding of the characteristics and the design options for both hardware and software is essential for the design and operation of these computer systems.

The curriculum of the Major Computer Hardware/Software Engineering (CHSE) will contribute to specializing students in the design and application on complex hardware/software systems with optimized performance, minimized power dissipation, efficient operation and similar key parameters by selecting/designing adapted hardware and software implementations.
