The Institute of Computer Engineering's research and teaching activities are primarily devoted to all aspects of the direct interaction of computer systems and their environment, from the lowest level of circuit and hardware architectures to safety-critical cyber-physical systems like industrial automation & smart grids, healthcare, spacecraft, and automotive. Key characteristics of our work are hence an integrative view of a multitude of system aspects, including hardware architectures, continuous/discrete systems, parallelism and communication, dependability, real-time processing, low-power design, energy and resource efficiency, decision and control theory, autonomy, etc., and interdisciplinarity: Core computer science knowledge and skills like concurrent programming, modeling, design and analysis, formal verification and synthesis of both software and hardware are complemented by specific knowledge and skills from other disciplines, in particular, continuous mathematics, system theory and electrical engineering.

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 this area.
