Prof. Dr. sc. Michael Pradel
The "Software Lab" is a research group that focuses on tools and
techniques for building reliable, efficient, and secure software. To
this end, we work on testing and analysis of complex software systems.
As part of our research, we have contributed to techniques that detected
thousands of bugs in widely used software.
Reliable Software Systems
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Steffen Becker
The Reliable Software Systems group deals with methods, languages, and tools to engineer the quality of software systems. Software quality is the level to which a software system meets its requirements beyond the functional correctness, i.e., performance, reliability, safety, maintainability, scaleability, elasticity, cost- and energy-efficiency, etc. Our methods help software architects, developers, and operators to design systems efficiently to meet their quality reqirements and to help them monitor and ensure them at runtime.
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Wagner
The Software Engineering Research Group wants to deliver contributions to software engineering which are applicable to the real world and also used in the real world. At the same time we do not ask external partners to apply software engineering procedures we do not follow ourselves daily. Thus we are our own, not always successful, laboratory animals.
