Aim of course

This course permits first steps in own scientific work on selected topics of computer engineering. Based upon a (typically self-assigned) publications on some suitable topic in this field, a short paper shall be written and presented during the semester. In addition, the course is also an excellent opportunity to get in touch with our research projects and establishes a solid basis for related diploma thesises and dissertations.

Subject of course

Possible topics (selection): Timing analysis methods, real-time programming languages, real-time programming, code synthesis and code generation for embedded systems, hardware and software architectures for embedded systems, embedded operating systems. The organization of this course is very similar to writing a Master/PhD thesis, albeit with much less size and tighter supervision.

Additional information
