Logo Innovation plus

In der Programmier- und Softwaretechnikausbildung ist neben der Vermittlung theoretischer Grundlagen ein wichtiger Aspekt die praktische Anwendung und Umsetzung der gelernten Konzepte durch die Studierenden. Dabei geht es um Programmierung und Modellierung von einfachen bis zu komplexen Aufgaben als Aspekte der Softwareentwicklung. Primärziel des Projektes ist es, den Studierenden eine Plattform zum Selbststudium bereitzustellen, auf der sie zeitnah Rückmeldungen zu Fehlern und Problemen ihrer Programmier- und Modellierungslösungen erhalten, die aber gleichzeitig durch Automatisierung für bis zu 500 Studierende einer Veranstaltung skaliert. Die Plattform soll sowohl für Einzelarbeit als auch für Team-basierte Entwicklungsmethoden wie Pair-Programming oder kollaborative Modellierung ausgelegt sein.

Time is Fake

„Time is fake“ ist ein Kunstwerk des Oldenburger Künstlers und Kunsttechnikers Michael Olsen aus den Jahren 2016 – 2018, das mit softwaretechnischer Unterstützung der Abteilung Softwaretechnik realisiert wurde und dabei als Beispiel für verteilte und plattformübergreifende Entwicklung dient.


Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) represent one of the most prominent trends in computer technology, creating a deep integration of hardware and software components. They have evolved in conjunction with Internet of Things (IoT) and various smart approaches, in manufacturing, transportation, health care, buildings, emergency response. As the world has become increasingly inter-related - due to services, mobile devices, Cloud Computing, and wireless networks - CPS have highly proliferated, facing challenges like scalability, composability, and heterogeneity. The aim is to elaborate integrated models that drive cyber-physical systems, and specific modeling languages, for dealing with the level of complexity required in real-world settings.

Smart Modeling

Recent technological advancements have led to an increasingly interconnected world, leading to new, autonomous smart devices and services that permeate everyday life (Internet of Things) and industry (Industry 4.0). This opens up a wide array of opportunities for applications in diverse domains. At the same time, the systems supporting these applications are reaching new levels of complexity, necessitating appropriate engineering methodologies. Model-driven Engineering provides the required foundations for formally rigorous development of software-intensive systems, but is still a long way from realizing its full potential, and the adoption in industry remains limited.

The Smart Modeling project is aimed at providing a thematic framework to facilitate knowledge exchange between computing science research groups at the University of Oldenburg, Germany, and the Tashkent University of Information Technologies in Uzbekistan, as well as industry partners. The project’s workshops act as student and doctoral symposium to promote young researchers, and as discussion forum to identify research and collaboration opportunities based on scientific challenges and concrete industry needs. Major outcomes will be a comprehensive report on the state of the art of model-driven engineering, jointly developed by participating young researchers, and concrete proposals for follow-up collaborative projects to advance Smart Modeling research, improve its coverage in education, and transfer results into practical application.

Abstract of this topic

EMIS Subsahara: Software Engineering Workshop

In the EMIS Subsahara project, researchers from the University of Oldenburg collaborate with partner universities in africa in the field of environment information systems. In this context, the Software Engineering Group organizes a workshop containing lectures and exercises for basic software engineering techniques.


In the TOCSE project (Tashkent Oldenburg Cooperation in Software Engineering), researchers from Tashkent University of Information Technology, Uzbekistan are currently visiting researchers in the Software Engineering group at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg. The research stay of the guests is funded by a grant according to the decree of Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan.


Building a Quality-Driven, Generic Tool-Chain for Software Migration | Aufbau einer qualitätsgetriebenen, generischen Werkzeugkette für die Software-Migration.
The Q-MIG project aims at enabling quality monitoring and comparison of a software system in a migration process. Quality comparison between legacy and migrated system enables strategically choosing between migration and redevelopment. Also, analysis of the quality of migrated software against the set of migration tools used helps in choosing an optimum migration toolchain.


The main goal of the DASIK-Project is to offer intensive courses on several topics of information and communication technologies both for students from academic institutions and for employees from industry.


Fast and correct decisions are very important into the IT sector. To dominate the high number of information and to provide relevant information for members, the project Dynamic IT Supplier Management started as a part of the research project ExpoIT Dynamics . Partner of this project is Volkswagen AG.
The project objective is the evaluation of IT suppliers (hardware, software, services) wherein mobile devices and Business Intelligence are used.

Software Engineering for Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency has become more important in recent years. This is shown by the development of engery consumption of information and communication technology (10 % of the german energy consumption in 2007). Futhermore battery development cannot keep up with the ubiquitous and powerful mobile devices. Research on hardware and low level software optimizations has been comprehensively explored. But the research on optimizing energy consumption on application level is still in its infancy. So in this project should be improved Energy Efficiency of applications by using reengineering services, like static and dynamic program analysis, and systematic code transformations.
