For bachelor students we offer German lectures and paper- or project-oriented seminars on software modeling and model-driven software engineering. Within a one-year bachelor project students finalize their studies in cooperation with external partners. For master students we offer courses on model-driven software engineering and on software engineering for embedded systems and self-adaptive systems. The courses are enhanced by specialized seminars, master projects and advised master theses.
Our research focuses on concepts and tools for model-driven software engineering in general and on the particular areas of embedded, cyber-physical, and self-adaptive systems. Our research is conducted in the context of larger research projects, in collaboration across students, across groups, and across universities.
We publish our research mostly at journals and conferences related to software engineering. Many of our publications are available as downloads. If you cannot find one, please contact one of the authors.
MATLAB Simulink/Stateflow Analysis and Transformation Environment (MATE)
Within the scope of the project MATE, which was funded by DaimlerChrysler AG, research was done how whith the usage of Model- and Graphtranformation-Tools modeling guidelines for MATLAB Simuling and Stateflow could be automaticaly evaluated. Beyond the model analysis itself a automatical pattern detection was examined. This pattern detection has the aim to find model violations concerning guidelines and design pattern.
