Welcome to Software Engineering

The Chair of Software Engineering at RUB combines foundational and applied research to automate software engineering for the next generation of intelligent, autonomous, and variant-rich software systems. We explore new ways of software creation, analysis, and evolution. Our main application domains are automotive systems, systems software (e.g. Linux kernel), software ecosystems (e.g. Android apps), and mobile robots.

We are proud that we do not only teach the boring theory of software engineering, but embrace its operationalization with many practical courses and labs. In fact, we offer most of the practical courses in our CS study programs.

We are always looking for motivated research assistants, teaching assistants, and scientific staff at the PhD or Postdoc level, to work with us on the future of engineering intelligent software systems. See Jobs.

  • Race Track Progress
    To further research and teach about autonomous vehicles, our chair is using all available resources, including hallway space. In addition to Turtlebots, we’re currently building F1Tenth model race cars and a whole race track to go along with it! Here are some impressions of its current progress.
  • New Project: Privacy E2E
    Late last year, the Chair’s new project Privacy E2E (funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research) launched. It aims at developing a framework for AI-systems that balances privacy/data protection with optimal performance. We’re currently looking for student assistants interested in joining and supporting the research! More info here.
  • We’ve moved!
    The Chair of Software Engineering has moved to the 4th floor of the MC building. We’re still located on the southern side, directly above our old offices. The main office can now be found in room 4.146.
  • New Textbook on Domain-Specific Languages
    Authors Andrzej Wąsowski and Thorsten Berger just published their new textbook “Domain-Specific Languages: Effective Modeling, Automation, and Reuse”. It covers methods, design patterns, guidelines, and QA practices for defining high-level languages to build better software and its 500 pages include 277 programming and modeling exercises, along with many practical examples from industry and open-source projects. … Read more
  • New website.
    We launched our new website, but as you can see, it is still somewhat under construction. It replaces the previous website of Thorsten Berger (http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~bergert), which is still available, but will eventually be removed.
