Professor Broy leads the Institute for Software & Systems Engineering. His research interests are software and systems engineering comprising both theoretical and practical aspects. This includes theoretical foundations of software and systems engineering, system modeling, specification, refinement, and composition of systems, requirements engineering, development methods, model based development, and verification. He leads a research group working in a number of industrial projects that apply mathematically based techniques in systems engineering and thus combine practical approaches to software engineering with mathematical rigor. There the main topics are adaptive systems, software architectures, componentware, software development processes, service orientation and graphical description techniques. In his group the CASE tool AutoFocus is developed.
