Physical Computing

Specialization of Software Engineering (B.Sc.)

Today’s microprocessors are predominantly embedded in special-purpose systems such as cars, smart home technologies, robotics, and medical devices. These processors, equipped with sensors and actuators, connect seamlessly to the world. Despite their limited processing power and memory, they are engineered to respond instantaneously to outside input.

What You Will Learn

In our Physical Computing specialization, you’ll gain in-depth knowledge of embedded development and the Internet of Things (IoT). Discover how to create reliable systems that operate in real-time on minimal resources. Learn the art of interfacing with electronic components – sensors, actuators, and others – that serve as the device’s eyes and ears.

Moreover, what would physical computing be without the capability to build physical prototypes? Master the creation of integrated prototypes through cutting-edge fabrication techniques, including 3D printing, preparing you to bring innovations from concept to reality.

Our learning concept is radically different

  • Real-life projects

    Each core semester students pitch project ideas to each other and work on real-life projects that ignite their curiosity.

  • Interdisciplinarity

    Students form interdisciplinary project teams across all study programs, combining diverse skills to develop digital products.

  • Professors as mentors

    Our professors take on the role of mentors, offering tailored support for problem-solving and delivering focused learning units as needed.

  • Self-directed learning

    In a world where knowledge is just a click away, we promote dynamic education through self-directed learning and peer collaboration.
