Embedded systems are central components of digitalization, automation and sensor systems, which are used in almost all areas of industry and society. They are a prerequisite for a sustainable design of our future. Especially for the current social challenges such as the transition of our energy system, the mitigation of climate change and the need for CO2 reduction or the circular economy, embedded systems represent a necessary basic technology for successful solutions.

Embedded systems already permeate our everyday lives. Intelligent control in our homes and buildings, automotive electronics and industrial automation are just a few examples. However, these invisible embedded electronic systems will further increase in importance in almost all areas – from the automotive industry to telecommunications, from industrial operations to healthcare and consumer electronics or from military and aerospace applications. For example, embedded systems can be used in environmental monitoring or even in the municipal sector for intelligent waste garbage cans or smart irrigation. Embedded systems with their sensor technology and automation are ultimately also the basis for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Embedded systems are an essential factor in keeping industry competitive and securing Europe's technological leadership. This course teaches practice-relevant competencies and represents a tailor-made training for the needs of industry and service providers to generate new added value through digitalization on a regional and international level.

At the moment this certified program is only available in German. (more information)
