Institute of Software Engineering and Programming Languages

Research

Our research covers many aspects of software engineering and programming languages. In particular, we focus on domain-specific languages, software configuration, and constraint programming. We employ formalized theories, develop open-source tools, and apply empirical research methods.

Overview of our research topics

Teaching

The institute represents the areas software engineering and programming languages in the bachelor and master programs of computer science and related fields. We offer the following mandatory courses in the Bachelor's program:

  • Interactive Systems Programming
  • Software Engineering
  • Software Project

Furthermore, we are responsible for the bachelor and master program Software Engineering.
