Our Advanced Systems Design (Systems Engineering) research master's program offers you as a student the opportunity to gain your first research experience at the most research-intensive university of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg.

From the first semester onwards, you will independently pursue a current research topic in the field of systems engineering. You will investigate scientific issues from applied research in state-of-the-art laboratories. You will be in close professional contact with your supervising professor and will be part of a research group.

For your research activities, you will choose a research and development topic (R&D topic) from the following study programs: Electrical Engineering, Optoelectronics and Optics or Mechatronics.

  • IT security
  • Additive manufacturing for medicine and production
  • Automation with (collaborative) industrial robots
  • Industry 4.0 applications and control technology in distributed (IoT) systems
  • Materials and surfaces
  • Application of machine learning in various fields
  • Energy generation, conversion and transmission:
    - Electrical drive technology- Power electronics
    - Grid feed-in / grid stability
    - Storage (batteries)
  • Mechatronic systems:
    - Reliability analyses
    - Concepts for optimization
  • Optical measurement technology
