About ESD

Interfacing D/A converters

From domestic devices like washing machines to complex space technology like satellites, most products require integrated digital control and software. These components have great impact on functionality and performance. With more than 16 billion devices embedded systems are everywhere. As "hidden systems" the embedded systems determine innovations in industrial equipment, medical devices and scientific instruments. Since many products without embedded systems cannot compete on the market, specially trained personnel are demanded by the industry worldwide.

Remote operational vehicle

The University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven recognized these demands at an early stage and started a master study program "Embedded Systems Design" (ESD) in summer 2011. As embedded systems we consider mechanical or electromechanical apparatuses whose essential function is to control processes with electronics and software. Courses like system identification, mechatronics, discrete control systems and system-on-chip design or model-based real-time software qualify the students to design future embedded systems in industrial, medical, or scientific applications (ISM market). The graduate students will meet the challenge to design modern, safe and reliable embedded products.

Lab experiments

Applicants should be interested in control engineering, mechanics, digital systems and software development. Basic knowledge in these areas as well as sound engineering principles of a preceding technical bachelor are requirements for admission to the ESD master program.
