The Institute of Computer Engineering's research and teaching activities focus on the area of cyber-physical systems and dependable embedded systems. Our activities are at the heart of the primary research area Technische Informatik (Computer Engineering) of the Faculty of Informatics, and integrate computer science, discrete and continuous systems theory, and microelectronics in a holistic approach. Major research areas are hybrid systems, real-time systems, fault-tolerant distributed algorithms, and dependable digital circuit architectures. Particular research activities range from formal/mathematical modeling and analysis over SW/HW architectures to microcontroller programming and FPGA/VLSI design.

With respect to teaching, the Institute of Computer Engineering is mainly involved in the Master and Bachelor curricula Technische Informatik (Computer Engineering), which offer a profound scientific-technological education in our fields of expertise.
