Func­tio­nal Safe­ty En­gi­nee­ring (Master)

Studierende in Seminarsituation

The safety of computer based systems is becoming increasingly important. For this reason, the University of Kassel offers holders of a bachelor in mathematics, electrical engineering, mechatronics or computer science the three-semester master course study Functional Safety Engineering (FUSE).

The study language of the master courses is English. The students will learn how to use and implement the various safety standards such as IEC/EN 61508, IEC/EN 61511, IEC 61131, and ISO 26262 in industry and science. The necessary methodological equipment for this is acquired from various study modules, e.g. Mathematical Models for Safety Systems, Theory of Safety-related Computer Architectures and Safety Standards and Norms of Electronic Systems. This offers excellent job prospects for the graduates in industry and science.
