Nowadays many technical products are highly equipped with embedded and control components. The awareness and importance of the software and hardware co-design is increasing and technical products have to be planned as one integrated system from the very beginning. Therefore, a discipline combining the knowledge of electrical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering is becoming essential in engineering and the need for qualifications in the three mention fields arises following the goal of interdisciplinary system development thus forming successful individuals.
The Systems Engineering bachelor´s programme at the University of Bremen is supported by three faculties:
- Faculty 01: Physics / Electrical Engineering,
- Faculty 03: Mathematics / Computer Science and
- Faculty 04: Production Engineering - Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering (leading faculty).
Thus, the interdisciplinary study programme offers qualifications in the three basic disciplines of electrical engineering, computer science and production/mechanical engineering. Right from the beginning of their study students learn to observe a technical system holistically as one unit, they learn interdisciplinary ways of observing systems. They study in an interdisciplinary working environment from the very start.
This bachelor´s programme offers four specializations, giving students the opportunity to apply and expand their theoretical knowledge of the three basic disciplines with specific knowledge and skills in one or more areas:
- Automation technology and robotics,
- Embedded systems and system software,
- Production engineering or
- Space engineering.
