Most innovations in the automotive sector have been based on electronics and software. Developments such as mobility services, autonomous driving or automated driving, networking, infotainment and e-mobility contribute significantly to the industry. With the number of software-controlled functions in an automatic car, its IT architecture is also changing towards central, virtual high-speed computers. 

The goal of this Software Engineering programme from the University of Europe for Applied Sciences  is to provide students with the most the state-of-the-art technology that will enable them to work and innovate in the automotive domain and any other business domain available in the market today.

In this Software Engineering (M.Sc.) program, students not only learn the current challenges in software design and architecture, but they are also taught to develop solutions to these challenges. 

They will also learn about the emerging trends in pattern recognition and vehicular technologies. Students will learn to build software and design and implement smart software using cloud computing and machine learning. 

The subject areas specifically considered in this degree program include:

  • Advanced software design and analysis technology
  • Processing of large amounts of data
  • Vehicular technologies including sensors and networks
  • Smart systems and decision-making systems
  • The creation of parallel computing or distributed software (Internet of Things, mobile apps)
  • Pattern precognition for detecting objects to be used in smart systems and autonomous driving
  • The creation and maintenance of complex software products
  • Security and reliability issues
  • The transition to and operation of software products

Each course is delivered by an industry expert in the subject. Teaching methods include classroom learning practicals and group work; class sizes are kept small to facilitate interaction and to promote effective learning. Each subject is taught at least once a year (and some are taught two) and most can be studied in any order; th"
