More and more devices and systems such as cars, airplanes, medical equipment and machines are controlled by integrated computer systems. These computer systems are known as embedded systems, because they are built into a device and are not immediately recognizable as a computer.

Embedded systems are usually specially adapted to the task. Problems such as minimum cost, low space, energy, memory consumption, large temperature variations, strong vibrations and electromagnetic interference radiation are all taken into account.

In software development in comparison to the PC World, we are restricted to only take account existing resources. Typical embedded systems often have no hard drive, no DVD drive, no monitor and memory from a few KB to a few MB.

In order to work successfully in this field, you need skills in technical computer science and electrical engineering.

Electrical knowledge is required for the development of the electronic circuit, connecting the sensor (e.g. temperature sensors) and actuators ( e.g. motors ) to the computer. In computer science, computer programming is taught.

The wide range of areas covered are continuing to grow, and always take into consideration the wide dissemination of embedded systems.


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


Hardware and software development and manufacturing of industrial PCs, embedded also in mini PC modules the so -called Computer-on- Module, as used in tickets or gaming machines and medical equipment.


Hardware and software development and production of intelligent measurement systems.
