The programme is offered in partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE.
Representatives of industry have expressed a great demand for a part-time training program to re-train the existing professional engineering work force in software engineering. Therefore, the Distance and Independent Studies Center (DISC) University Kaiserslautern, has developed a high-quality part-time distance program in "Software Engineering for Embedded Systems". The program imparts theoretical scientific background knowledge as well as practical methods, techniques, and tools that equip the engineer to deal with management issues on the one hand, and software development for embedded systems issues on the other hand:
- The program represents the state-of-the-art in software engineering for embedded systems.
- It has been developed by international top experts in the SE domain, who are both high-ranking researchers and are recognized in industry because of their extensive practical experiences.
High Demand for Software Engineering Practitioners
Today, traditionally hardware-dominated product domains are increasingly turning into software-dominated ones. Many of the companies and organizations in these transitional domains still employ mostly traditional engineers without a profound education and training in software and software engineering.
