Embedded and Microelectronics

Embedded systems have tremendously influenced our everyday life over the last decade - ranging from wearables and smartphones over medical devices and the Internet of Things towards autonomous transportation. The computation power as well as the available memory of microcontrollers has tremendously grown over the last years, allowing the implementation of complex algorithms like machine learning or computer vision also in embedded devices. As embedded systems interact with the environment, also the design and realisation of hardware solutions plays an important role in this major, which focusses on state of the art microcontrollers and FPGA's, embedded programming, realtime systems and hardware driven system design.
