“Computers you can’t see” are being lauded as the next big thing in information technology. The challenge of exploiting the growth potential of intelligent embedded systems, their broad range of application, and the numerous conceptual and technical advantages they offer constitutes a lucrative opportunity for research and industry in the coming years. The postgraduate degree program “Intelligent Embedded Microsystems – IEMS” is designed to provide graduates of computer science, microsystems engineering, and related fields with at least one year of professional experience behind them with the technological and algorithmic skills necessary for developing intelligent embedded microsystems. Depending on the student’s previous studies (B.A., degree from a university of applied sciences, diplom), the program encompasses a workload of between 60 and 120 ECTS credits. It consists of online courses with exercise courses, practical courses, projects, seminars, and a master’s thesis and qualifies graduates for a career in this growing field.

Please note:
In the summer semester 2021 and in the winter semester 2021/22 there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
