About the Master's program in Embedded Systems Engineering

Embedded Systems are a key technology of modern society. Whether in automotive industry, aerospace and medical technology or in telecommunications, media and entertainment industries – embedded systems always play a major role in state-of-the-art technology.

The Master of Science programme in Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) has been designed for highly qualified graduate students having a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and/or Engineering, Information Technology, Electrical and/or Electronics Engineering, Microsystems Engineering, Physics or in a closely related engineering field.

ESE students at the Faculty of Engineering benefit from

  • A very flexible curriculum
  • Individual mentoring by one of the professors
  • A modern campus with state-of-the-art equipment
  • Excellent job prospectives in Germany and abroad

The curriculum encompasses courses belonging to the following areas:

  • Design of microelectronic and micromechanic devices
  • Software based components
  • System integration
  • System optimisation regarding speed, cost and energy efficiency
  • Safety and reliability Six different concentration areas are offered:
  • Circuits and systems
  • Design and simulation
  • Sensors and actuators
  • Reliable embedded systems
  • Distributed systems
  • Robotics and computer visions
During the 6 months Master thesis ESE students can become involved in an actual research project of one of the research groups at the Faculty of Engineering.

About the University of Freiburg

In October 2007 the University of Freiburg was selected by the German government to become one out of 9 "Universities of Excellence". This demonstrates its top position among German universities, also documented in nationwide rankings. Besides its excellence in research and teaching, the scholarly diversity is above all what attracts so many students to Freiburg`s Alma Mater. The University of Freiburg consists of 11 Faculties, which offer degree programmes in theology, mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, pharmacy, geo sciences, forestry, computer science and microsystems engineering. The university library holds more than two million volumes as well as multimedia facilities and is open 24/7. All students have the opportunity to join the General University Sports Association, which offers 35 different kinds of sports.

With 30,000 students, Freiburg is clearly a college town. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere coupled with the large spectrum of cultural offerings has made Freiburg one of the most attractive destinations for students.
