Central Topics of Applied Computing

Distributed and Mobile Systems

  • Central Topics include: Concepts and methods forthe development of distributed and mobile systems,Software engineering, programming of mobileapplications and communication technologies,Advanced concepts for the engineering ofdistributed systems as well as modern integrationtechnologies and middleware platforms

Knowledge Engineering and Data Science:

  • For knowledge engineering and data sciencethe autonomous interactions to several kinds ofenvironments providing data is of basic importance.The courses provides build up a deep knowledge,from basic to advanced topics as well as practicalabilities in data acquisition, digital signal processingwith emphasis on time series processing andprediction, feature extraction methodologies andmachine learning technologies

Software Engineering:

  • Central Topics include: Interdisciplinary and holistictechniques for the development of smart systems.This affects design, development, testing, andoperation of these applications

Communication Technologies and Security:

  • Distributed and mobile systems are highlycommunication intensive. A solid knowledgeof underlying communication technologies is aprerequisite for the development of these systems and their security. The International Master Studies Applied Computer Science at Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences provides qualifi cations in urgent need in all phases of the development and management of smart systems. A specifi c target is the qualification for scientifi c work in research projects as well as the preparation for a Ph.D

Mobile systems are moving while providing or consuming services. Generally mobile users take mobile devices with them in order to utilize wireless communication services. Mobile Applications exhibit specific behaviors and are constrained in ways that were unknown in traditional IT systems. They have to be developed for economic use of scarce resources and at the same time to adapt gracefully to context changes.

Modern IT systems tend to be highly distributed. The adoption of mobile devices and wireless communication technology makes it possible to access services located globally. In consequence, the resulting complexity has to be met with adequate concepts, methods, and technologies.

Contextual dependence:
Due to mobility and rapidly changing environments applications have to adapt themselves to situational changes quickly. Smart applications are expected to deliver meaningful and adapted variants of their services in different type of environment (context awareness).
