Deepen your knowledge

The aim of the Master's programme is thus to enable graduates of a diploma or bachelor's programme to support the knowledge gained to date with further theoretical knowledge in order to meet the requirements of modern development tasks, particularly in high-tech areas, in a special way. The Master's degree paves the way for a later doctorate and thus also for work in scientific fields.

The Master's programme is taught primarily in English. Therefore a good (B2 level) understanding of English is necessary for the study and must be proven by common language examinations such as TOEFL, IELTS for English. A list of recognized certificates can be found on our website.

The courses of the Automation and Power Engineering focus are taught entirely in English. All but one courses of the Electronic and Communication Systems focus are tought in English, however all course materials and exams are in English.

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 in electronics and information and communication technology who are capable of creative work with in-depth theoretical knowledge and a broad spectrum of expertise. With the Master of Science you are optimally prepared for the future.

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

If you are among the best, you will have the best prerequisites to complete a doctorate after completing your Master's degree.
