Systems Design – Master of Science in Engineering

Development and implementation of complex systems

Insidertips & Information on the admission procedure

Cope with complex and cross-circular systems

The complexity of technical systems is steadily increasing: Our society uses more devices than ever to improve everyday life, while at the same time multiple industries are searching for new ways to enhance their processes through the means of digitalisation. Nowadays, engineers have to cope with complex and cross-circular systems rather than with clearly assigned single components. Many businesses are already struggling to find sufficient experts who can navigate the intricate challenges of new emerging technologies. The Master Degree program “Systems Design” offers special opportunities for those who seek to accept these challenges.

The program spans over four semesters and includes a wide variety of courses that prepare for a career in engineering. Students acquire detailed knowledge of Mathematics, Systems Theory, Informatics, Control Systems, Data Analysis and Circuit Design. Modern technical developments are also key for mastering the requirements of Systems Design: Data Science, Robotics, Circuit Design, Sensors and Automatic Control are being discussed with great detail over the course of the program.
