Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics

Courses leading to a Master’s degree, taught in English

Last revision: February 20th, 2018

Dear Erasmus students,

welcome to Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). We are a small but high-class university with a clear profile in research and with modern, practice-oriented learning methods. The School of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics offers a wide selection of ambitious classes at Master and Bachelor level. The intent of this brochure is to guide students of the European exchange program ERASMUS through their academic studies at TUHH.

The academic calendar in Germany differs from that of other European countries. The German academic year is divided into two semesters: the Wintersemester (WS) from October 1st to March 31st and the Sommersemester (SS) from April 1st to September 30th. Each semester consists of 14 weeks during which classes take place and a period when there are usually no classes. The first period is called Vorlesungszeit and the second vorlesungsfreie Zeit. The final exams for the classes are during the vorlesungsfreie Zeit. The periods of the Vorlesungszeit slightly vary from year to year. The exact dates you will find on the website of TUHH. In the WS, the Vorlesungszeit at TUHH begins in mid-October and ends in the middle of February with a break of about two weeks around Christmas. In the SS TUHH classes start at the beginning of April until middle of July with a break of one week after Pentecost.

All courses are either taught in the Wintersemester or in the Sommersemester. One exception to this rule are language courses. This brochure contains a list of all courses of the School of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics of our Master programs that are taught in English. There are also a few courses that are only taught in German, they are not listed. The list gives a short overview about the content of each course. The list is divided into two parts: courses of the winter term and of the summer term You also find the name of the lecture. You may also participate in courses taught by other faculties and languages courses. You will find information about these courses on TUHH's website.

The lecture rooms and the lecturing times vary from year to year, again please have a look at the website. In rare cases lectures of different courses may be given at the same time. In this case you have to change your course selection after your arrival in Hamburg. We advise you to participate in a German language course. This will enable you to get an insight into the German culture to get the most out of your stay.

Exams are held during the vorlesungsfreie Zeit. On occasion ERASMUS students have to be at their home university at that time. In this case it is advisable to contact the lecturer of the corresponding class and ask for alternatives.

For all questions regarding your academic stay in Hamburg please consult the International Office of TUHH. It provides a wealth of information through their web site at https://www.tuhh.de/alt/tuhh/education/contacts/international-office.html.

We hope that your stay at TUHH enriches your scientific and cultural views of the planet and we look forward to welcoming you in Hamburg!

channel, serves as the starting point of all considerations. The characteristics and the mathematical descriptions of the radio channel are discussed in detail. Subsequently, various physical layer aspects of wireless transmission are covered, such as channel coding, modulation/demodulation, channel estimation, synchronization, and equalization. Moreover, the different uses of multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver, known as MIMO techniques, are described. Besides these physical layer topics, concepts of multiple access schemes in a cellular network are outlined.

In order to illustrate the above-mentioned technical solutions, the lecture will also provide a system view, highlighting the basics of some contemporary wireless systems, including

Compilers for Embedded Systems Lecture, Lab 6 ECTS 4 SWS

The relevance of embedded systems increases from year to year. Within such systems, the amount of software to be executed on embedded processors grows continuously due to its lower costs and higher flexibility. Because of the particular application areas of embedded systems, highly optimized and application-specific processors are deployed. Such highly specialized processors impose high demands on compilers which have to generate code of highest quality. After the successful attendance of this course, the students are able

• to illustrate the structure and organization of such compilers,

• to distinguish and explain intermediate representations of various abstraction levels, and

• to assess optimizations and their underlying problems in all compiler phases.

The high demands on compilers for embedded systems make effective code optimizations mandatory. The students learn in particular, • which kinds of optimizations are applicable at the

source code level, • how the translation from source code to assembly

code is performed, • which kinds of optimizations are applicable at the

assembly code level, • how register allocation is performed, and • how memory hierarchies can be exploited

effectively. Since compilers for embedded systems often have to optimize for multiple objectives (e.g., average- or worst-case execution time, energy dissipation, code size), the students learn to evaluate the influence of optimizations on these different criteria.
