The demand for specialists with a broad-based theoretical and practical knowledge of current technical approaches is continually growing. The application architect already plays a crucial role in mid-sized and large industrial projects. However, there is currently a lack of suitably-trained graduates on the market who can take on the demanding and complex responsibilities of an IT architect.
Specialists in this area need a high degree of systematic thinking and are therefore able to apply concepts learned and current technical solutions flexibly in projects. Particularly important for a software and systems architect is continuous professional development and the ability to question new approaches to solutions with regard to their practical suitability in solving current and future problems.
Graduates are qualified to work as architects in software and systems development. As a junior architect you will be able to design applications of moderate complexity or work with senior architects to develop large-scale systems. With several years of professional experience, you will then be ready to take on the responsibility of independently designing large-scale application systems.
Employment opportunities are to be found in software companies that develop individual applications, in industry, in commercial businesses, or in the service industry where the main focus will be on the networking and integration of existing and new applications.
