About us and what we do

Software is an integral part of complex systems and products having a steadily increasing meaning for their success. Our research focus and teaching address major topics and future challenges emerging in the field of software and systems development.

Past successes and emerging results of our work have proved valuable in numerous national and international research projects. Our contributions range from fundamental and applied research to the transfer of technology to industry.

Successful industrial cooperation with well-known, international companies impressively bear witness to our competences. Our collaborative efforts with industry partners include independent consulting as well as the development of prototypes and demonstrators.

We are always interested in new and exciting challenges and look forward to your questions and proposals. Please feel free to contact us on this matter.
