Systems Engineering for Automotive Electronics


The SEAE course provides insights into the scientific development processes and the systematic development of supporting tools with concrete examples from the automobile industry. The SEAE course consists of three parts: Lecture, Laboratory and Excursion.


  • Development Process: Market trends of automotive electronics, technological trends of development processes, process requirements, methods and tools, overview of solution methods, overview of further lectures
  • Automotive Target architectures: Architecture development process, specification of automotive target architecture, HW/SW architecture, networks, bus systems (CAN, LIN, MOST, FlexRay), processor families, standard SW modules, OSEK, diagnostics standards, boundary conditions for the design of architectures (size, costs, assembly, wiring)
  • Development tools I (system level): Development process, tool requirements for production use, models of computation, Requirements Engineering, methods and tools for design of control systems, methods and tools for design of distributed systems (TITUS)
  • Development tools II (software layer): Automatic code generation (processes, methods, tools), automated testing
  • Quality management: SW quality management system DC
  • System Design and Project Management: Design of a development project, project management, processes and tools, risk management, supply management


  • The students can get acquainted with a state of the art CASE tool for automotive conception.
  • During the lab the students will model a vehicle feature from the area electric / electronics and integrate this feature into an existing vehicle model.
  • The lab will take place on two dates.


  • The SEAE participants will be taken on an excursion to the Porsche factory, Zuffenhausen at the end of the course.
