Computer Engineering Group

Our research

The Computer Engineering group at Humboldt University does research on the design of computer and network systems. Our focus is on the following areas:

  • communication networks and protocols,
  • design of application-tailored digital circuits, especially based on FPGAs, and
  • security of network and IT systems.

The optimal interplay between the many-faceted components in complex IT/network systems are often at the centre of our attention: how to build a system so that it achieves its goals in the most efficient way, under given conditions?

Within this broad range we currently work, for example, on topics in the following areas:

  • communication systems for improving the efficiency of road traffic
  • combined active/passive positioning systems
  • communication and resource efficiency in cyber-physical systems
  • specialized circuits for applications in communication networks
  • congestion control mechanisms for Internet anonymization systems
  • sensor/actor systems in mechanical engineering
  • failure modeling and prediction in computing systems
  • distributed Algorithms for the efficient collection of data traffic statistics


Our teaching

We offer many courses in the area of computer engineering and networking. Topics range from computer architecture and circuit design, wired and wireless networks and communication protocols to security and algorithms and distributed systems.

Our current teaching programme can be found here (German only).
