Advanced Systems Engineering

Advanced systems engineering describes a new school of developing the intelligent technical systems of tomorrow.

Digitalisation is regarded as the outstanding driver of change today. It is creating fascinating potential benefits for industry, but digitalisation is also changing the market services of tomorrow and the way in which they are developed. More than ever, the overarching interplay of specialised disciplines such as electronics, IT and mechanical engineering is crucial. At the same time, the four main tasks of product development - strategic product planning, product development, service development and production system development - need to be closely coordinated and driven forward on a cross-disciplinary basis. Traditional development methods quickly reach their limits when developing the systems of tomorrow. More...

Research

Research focuses on the product development of intelligent technical systems. With Advanced systems engineering, the department focusses on an interdisciplinary, technology-supported development approach that focuses on the entire innovation process - from strategic planning to market success.

Research topics

Teaching

We are intensively involved in the teaching and training of students and young academics such as doctoral candidates, post-doctoral candidates and junior professors with the aim of providing them with the skills they need to shape the future.

Courses

Projects

We can provide companies with significant impetus for innovation and for maintaining their competitiveness. There are many approaches to this. They range from the placement of graduates through collaborative projects to contract developments, which we generally carry out via our spin-offs.

Project overview

„My eternal questioning has led me down this path: How do all these machines work that we use every day, whether driving or in other everyday situations, and that seem to be a natural part of our lives?”

Lisa Irene Kirchberg,
Wissenschaftlerin der Fachgruppe "Advanced Systems Engineering" am Heinz Nixdorf Institut der Universität Paderborn
