Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The student shall study the current state-of-the-art in a selected topic area in the field of embedded system design methodologies that are based on a formal foundation. A central part of the course is a literature survey, which will define the research problems and challenges of the topic area. In addition novel techniques shall be evaluated by experiments, and compared with existing techniques. Finally, the student shall put the results of literature study and experimental study into the context of her/his own research topic.

Intended learning outcomes *

After the course the student shall

• have gained a deep understanding of the research problems in the selected topic area

•  be aware of the state-of-the-art in the selected topic area

• be able to compare different approaches with respect to benefits and limitations

• be able to identify new research challenges in the selected topic area

• be able to model problems in the selected topic area at an abstract level and to propose possible solutions
