Software Engineering Research

Our mission

To define, improve and industrially apply techniques, concepts, and methods for innovative and efficient development of software and software-intensive systems, such that high-quality products can be developed in a shorter period of time and with flexible integration of changing requirements.


Main areas of research

Within our scope the following and related fields of research and technology transfer are of particular significance:

Application Domains

Our Most Important Software Tools




Current and Fresh Research Topics

Fresh research topics not necessarily already come with published articles. We assume results will be published soon:
  • Digital Twins and Digital Shadows in Engineering and Production
  • SysML 2.0
  • Modelling in Systems Engineering (fitting to Internet of Production Excellence Cluster)



Prominent research projects from Prof. Nagl (-2009)
