Deepen your knowledge

The vast majority of the electronics with hardware and software developed worldwide today is not in computers such as PCs or tablets, but in so-called embedded systems. These are technical devices in various fields (e.g. motor vehicles, aircraft, medicine, automation). These devices are controlled by a built-in (embedded), often not directly visible computer. Examples of such systems are the ABS/ESP in a motor vehicle, the control of a pacemaker or a washing machine.

The Master's programme Applied Computer Science / Infotronics imparts the competences to work on new, complex tasks and problems in the development and project planning of embedded systems.

The Master's programme is thus intended to enable graduates of a Bachelor's programme to substantiate the knowledge gained so far with theoretical and application-oriented knowledge in order to meet the requirements of modern development tasks in high-tech areas in a special way. Building on the previous bachelor's programme, the course imparts essential advanced specialist knowledge of hardware and software development as well as methodical and personal skills for concrete career orientation in research and development, application, management, consulting or sales of embedded systems. Furthermore, the degree forms the basis for a scientific career at universities and research institutes and serves as preparation for a doctorate.

In the Master's programme, the theoretical and application-oriented knowledge and skills are deepened and expanded. Courses in theoretical and practical computer science, supplemented by lectures especially for the development of embedded systems, as well as selected subjects of electrical engineering create a sound knowledge base. The Master's students acquire the ability to work independently in science, which is also promoted by the Master's degree's relationship to the research activities of the faculty and lecturers. They gain knowledge about methodical concepts and current research literature. Fundamentals of engineering are applied to real problems derived from research projects and experiences within the faculty in order to develop expertise and competences to solve problems in the areas of design, testing, development and research. Furthermore, the ability to quickly and systematically familiarize oneself with new areas will be promoted.

As part of a cooperation between the TH Deggendorf and the University of Pilsen, an optional semester abroad in Pilsen provides the opportunity to acquire a double degree from both universities.

Career prospects

Companies are increasingly confronted with international interdependencies ('globalisation'), complex organisational structures and increasingly complex technology. In addition to an international orientation, there are increased demands on qualified engineers in research and development or with management tasks.

The markets of the digital world of today and tomorrow need more and more highly qualified engineers for the development of embedded systems, who are capable of creative work with deepened theoretical knowledge and a broad spectrum of knowledge. With the Master of Engineering you are optimally prepared for the future.

The international orientation of a Master of Engineering and the high scientific standard of the training give you the necessary security at the start of your career and the companies or research institutions the guarantee to employ highly qualified staff.

If you are among the best, then you have optimal conditions after the master's degree to continue with a doctorate.
