Applied Computer Science, B.Eng.

Faculty of Computer Science

Shape the Systems of the Future

Many technical devices, including cars and airplanes, are controlled by so-called "embedded systems", i.e. systems that are located inside a device. They ensure optimum control of the device. Graduates of Applied Computer Science have a broad professional perspective and optimal entry opportunities to pursue a career in industry or a scientific career.

In the Applied Computer Science course at Deggendorf Technical University, you will acquire the necessary knowledge to design embedded systems and program applications for mobile devices (smartphones, tablets). You will also learn how to process navigation, positioning and sensor data (GPS, Galileo, RFID, ...).

Career Prospects

More and more devices and systems in our environment, e.g. cars, airplanes, medical devices, but also washing machines and automatons, are controlled by embedded systems.

Embedded systems are usually specially adapted to the respective task. Problems such as minimal costs, low space, energy and memory consumption, large temperature fluctuations, strong vibrations and electromagnetic interference must be taken into account.

When developing software, real-time requirements must be taken into account and, in comparison to the PC world, resources that are either limited or non-existent must be taken into account. Typical embedded systems often have no hard disk, no DVD drive, no monitor and memory from a few Kbytes to a few MBytes.

In order to be able to work successfully in this area, you need skills in computer engineering and electrical engineering.

The name Infotronics is an artificial word from computer science and electrical engineering. It should clarify the symbiosis of both fields. Electrotechnical knowledge is required for the development of the electronic circuit, the connection of the transducers (e.g. temperature sensors) and actuators (e.g. motors) to the computer. Computer science teaches the programming of computers.

Today, the fields of employment are already very diversified and continue to increase due to the increasing spread of embedded systems. Graduates can, for example, work in the following areas.

AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS

Hardware and software development as well as production of so-called microcontroller-based electronic control units

INDUSTRY COMPUTERS

Hardware and software development and production of industrial PCs, as well as embedded Mini-PC modules - so-called Computer-on-Modules, as used in ticket machines, gaming machines and medical equipment.

INTELLIGENT MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY

Hardware and software development and production of intelligent measuring systems.
