|Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences||7 Semesters|
Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by technical systems so unobtrusive and natural that we rarely notice them anymore. They have become ingrained parts of our lives, seamlessly blending into the world around us. The applications for these technical systems are as diverse as they are innovative: mobile phones, entertainment devices, technical healthcare solutions (such as health monitoring devices), systems for managing the modern household, traffic monitoring and control systems, automated driving assistance, and safety systems (airbags, ESP, ABS), and industrial production control systems (“smart” factories, industry 4.0) are just a few noteworthy examples.
Though they come in all shapes and sizes, these systems all share a common basis: a highly complex interaction between hardware and software solutions. They are capable of collecting data from their surroundings via sensors, processing this data, exchanging it with other systems and ultimately deriving decisions and actions from it. This complex process is often broken down into smaller parts – for example, with a network of less expensive/efficient devices gathering large amounts of data, which is sent to powerful central servers for further analytical and decision-making processes.
In your first four semesters, you will acquire sound knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer science, enhance your subject knowledge in mathematics, and be introduced to scientific research methods.
The following semesters will provide an in-depth study. During this time, you will also be able to define your knowledge more sharply by choosing elective courses that suit your interests and career plans. The range of electives includes areas such as smart environments, advanced sensor technology, computer security, and even business administration. An interdisciplinary project will allow you to carry out an in-depth investigation of a topic of your choosing and will give you the chance to hone your individual strengths and areas of specialism.
In the sixth semester, you will have the choice of either studying abroad or doing a practical semester to accumulate valuable work experience that sets you apart from the crowd and contributes to your overall personal and academic development.
Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences welcomes applications from nationals of all countries.
