Information & Communication

Interactive approaches to a digital future

Intelligent and distributed IT is the basis of modern software solutions, and reliability and intuitive usability are the key to market success. Our training programs in information and communication technologies focus on all of these key aspects, drawing on the very latest research and real-life applications.


Mastering PLM

The efficient handling of product data and development knowledge is one of the key challenges in today's product development. The interaction between digital technology and modeling, information networking, software functionality and the processes and methods for needs-based decision-making along the entire product and factory life must still be established as a core competence.  


Data Scientist Training Series

The courses in this training program are aimed at business developers, analysts and application developers who want to acquire qualifications in the field of data science. The training program includes both courses on fundamentals of big data, as well as modules for specific fields of application. The one to two-day training courses with a maximum of ten participants and conducted by two experienced instructors offer the best opportunities to meet individual needs.


Master Software Engineering for Embedded Systems

Advances in medical devices and the automotive industry are increasingly likely to be achieved through the tight coupling of hardware and software components, generally referred to as “embedded systems”. The Masters in Software Engineering for Embedded Systems also covers project management skills and the development of complex, software-intensive systems.


Cybersecurity Training Lab

Professionally trained IT security specialists are a rare commodity in Germany. So as not to fall behind in the arms race with cyber criminals, IT teams and managers must constantly hone their skills and improve their expertise in order to stay at least one step ahead. Several Fraunhofer Institutes and universities of applied sciences are now offering a modular, part-time study program to alleviate the unmet demand for training opportunities.

Software Architecture

Only available in German.

Used effectively, software architectures can help predict whether functional and quality requirements will be met and can be used to plan implementation projects and monitor their progress. One of the key benefits of these architectures is ensuring that systems can be upgraded and modified to reflect changes. In its three- to five-day seminars, Fraunhofer IESE helps participants improve their skills in some of the key tasks tackled by software architects.

TeleTrusT Information Security Professional

Only available in German.

In the age of digitization, more and more companies are realizing the importance of information security. Aimed at security professionals with relevant experience, Fraunhofer FIT’s one-week course leading to qualification as a TeleTrusT Information Security Professional (T.I.S.P.) enables participants to enhance their existing knowledge in all the key areas of information security, including network security, cryptography and security management.

Usability Engineer

Only available in German.

Software user expectations have changed in recent years, with a clear move away from complicated technology in favor of maximum usability. Based on recognized usability standards and the usability guidelines developed by the German accreditation body Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS), Fraunhofer FIT offers a one-week course leading to qualification as a certified Usability Engineer. The course participants learn skills that can be applied across multiple different industries and media.

Learning with robots

Only available in German.

Fraunhofer IAIS began the »Roberta® – Learning with Robots« project back in 2002. Its goal was to tap into school children’s fascination with robots as an exciting and practical means of increasing their knowledge in the fields of science, technology and information technology. The one-and-a-half-day Roberta teacher training course shows teachers how they can use the concept of learning with robots to boost their pupils’ interest in technology subjects.


Only available in German.

Meeting or even exceeding expectations is a key characteristic of successful companies! But to ensure that expectations can be met by a software system, the requirements must be first known and understood. Requirements Engineering (RE) guarantees that a software system really accomplishes what it has been programmed to do and that it can be used easily and effectively.


Architecting for Change – Designing Adaptable Cyber-physical systems

One of the key characteristics of Cyber-Physical-Systems is inevitable change. Specific customer needs, technology changes, and closer collaboration between organizations in so-called ecosystems are typical change drivers these days. Organizations need to plan, support, and manage the changes in a suitable manner to increase their business value and to their innovation speed.  


International Data Spaces

The Initiativative International Data Spaces aims to create a secure data room that enables businesses of all types and sizes to manage their assets in a sovereign manner. The "Data Sovereignty and International Data Space Training" and the "Hands-On Software Workshop - Implemented Data Sovereignty through the International Data Space" are offered in this context.

Quantum Technology Professional

Quantum mechanics provides the basis for a new computing paradigm. In the 1990s Shor's algorithm which exponentially speeds up classical integer factorization demonstrated the theoretical power of quantum computers. Recently, the development of quantum computers is making great progress and we need to learn how we can use the advantage of quantum computers.
