Embedded Systems Design (ESD)
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.
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.

ESD focuses on the design of embedded systems for the industrial, scientific and medical market (ISM market). ESD in Bremerhaven concentrates on industrial, medical, and scientific devices. This makes ESD not a mere „computer science“ program. Beside VHDL and system-on-chip (SoC), software development techniques, topics like mechatronics, advanced discrete control theory, safety and reliability are essential parts of ESD.

About the university
Bremerhaven is a city by the sea with many possibilities for students.
The campus is centrally located directly in the city centre and is a 5 minute walk from the dike. The proximity to the dike offers a perfect break from the stress of learning, but also relaxed evenings in the student community.
