Learning outcomes

The purpose of this course is to provide the opportunity for such knowledge in depth within embedded systems that is not covered by the regular course.

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

propose appropriate solutions for applications, given a specification,

summarize and present independently acquired knowledge in a chosen special area within embedded systems,

discuss and evaluate the central theses, for example, in books or research reports in the chosen area,

where applicable, apply acquired knowledge through implementation or simulations of concrete examples,

present. in English both in writing and orally, the prerequisites, argue for the chosen solution methods and present the results.


Introductory lectures on possibilities with single capsule computers and embedded systems. The student determines a special area within embedded systems in consultation with the teacher responsible for the course and the supervisor appointed for the student. The student also has the opportunity to choose a special area within embedded systems in collaboration with companies.


Lectures, self-studies, project supervision, and seminars.


Written report in English as well as oral presentations and seminars in English. The report is assessed, not only from the technical/scientific point of view, but also linguistically and structurally.

If there are special reasons, the examiner may make exceptions to the specified examination methods and allow an individual student to be examined in a different way. Special reasons can, e.g., be notified of special educational support from the university's coordinator for students with disabilities.
