In the fifth and sixth semesters, you’ll choose three specialisations to the value of 30 ECTS. To do this, you’ll choose each specialisation from a different field. Examples of these specialisations include Social engineering, Cloud security, or Automation & Robotics.

In this specialisation, you’ll get to know the specifics of developing software for mobile systems. With the Android mobile platform as an example, you will learn how one differentiates mobile applications (apps) from the development of browser-based information systems, which technologies and programming concepts are typically used, and which challenges there are to developing apps for industrial purposes. You’ll learn how to independently create mobile software systems and use them to solve concrete problems on various software platforms. The optimal usage of camera, photo and video, as well as cross platform development, rounds out this module.
