Chair for Design Automation

The Chair for Design Automation covers the development of design methods for various application areas. A particular focus of our work is on the design and simulation of circuits and systems for conventional as well as future technologies (such as quantum computing, microfluidics, or field-coupled nanocomputing). Besides that, we have proven to successfully apply the methods developed by us in complementary research areas. For students, we offer for graduate and undergraduate courses and supervise Bachelor as well as Master theses. We believe in research-oriented learning.
