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.
Software Manufacture Models (SWMaMos) are special process models, where the characterization of MDE activities captures how artifact relations change. We introduced SWMaMos as an integration of development processes and model management to enable an analysis how MDE enforces an order of development activities (i.e. restricts the way processes can look like).
Currently, we introduce SWMaMo proto pattern associated to changeability concerns, to enable an analysis of changeability support, since changeability is one of the most crucial producivity factors for agile processes and incremental development in general.
