High Demand for Software Engineering Practitioners Today, traditionally hardware-dominated product domains are increasingly turning into software-dominated ones. Many of the companies and organizations in these transitional domains still employ mostly traditional engineers without solid education and training in software engineering. Representatives in the industry have expressed great demand for a part-time training program to re-train the existing professional engineering work force in software engineering. With this in mind, the DISC has developed this high-quality part-time distance program. The program, offered by the DISC since 2008, imparts theoretical scientific background knowledge as well as practical methods, techniques, and tools that equip the engineer to deal with software development for embedded systems issues.
Objective The overall goal of this distance education program is to provide professionals with a sound theoretical software engineering background as well as with practical methods, techniques, and tools that take software development issues into account. The program prepares the students for a career as professional software engineers in the industry. The course concludes with the academic degree "Master of Engineering" (M.Eng.).
Target group The distance education program is designed for professionals working in the field of software development who need to acquire advanced knowledge about emerging technologies and who wish to broaden their software engineering skills by pursuing graduate-level education in software engineering. The program targets graduates of engineering disciplines such as electrical, mechanical, and industrial engineering, graduates of IT disciplines such as computer science and business informatics, and graduates of non-engineering disciplines, such as mathematics and physics. Applicants may also be accepted who have relevant work experience but have not graduated for a university. They must hold a diploma qualifying for university admission, be able to prove several years of relevant work experience and pass an aptitude test. More information about the admission requirements and the aptitude test can be found on the homepage www.zfuw.de.
Program content The distance education master program "Software Engineering for Embedded Systems" encompasses ten modules. The fields of study include principles of software engineering for embedded systems, requirements engineering, testing and inspections, software product lines, component-based development, security, real-time systems, as well as software quality assurance.
The course is held entirely in English.
The admission requirements are distinguished between work experience requirements and formal requirements: Work experience:• a minimum of 2 years of employment in software development• ability to work in a team• ability to perform work on a graduate level (related to current degree)Formal requirements:• Graduate degree in an engineering discipline or• Graduate degree in computer science or• Graduate degree in mathematics or• Graduate degree in physicsA sufficient proof of proficiency in English is necessary.
1.950,00 € per term + 90,00 € social contribution costs per term + 500,00 € one-off fee for the Master's examination
