Information Technology is not only enabling technology but also a driving force behind our society‘s transformation towards an "information society". Computer, Communications, Micro- and Optoelectronics, Embedded Systems and their interaction as well as Computer Hard- or Software represent the technological building blocks, which are based on extensive research, to create solutions for the people of the information age.
The INFOTECH Master's program provides a unique blend of Computer Science and Electronics/Information Engineering courses within one program, enriched by non-technical courses that enable interdisciplinary education and the training of fundamental methods and scientific skills for research and development in information technology.
More detailled information on INFOTECH and the application process is published on the study program's website.
Prospective students require a Bachelor of Science degree (or similar) of an at least three-year course of study in the fields of Computer Science, Communications, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Information Technology or Automation.
To manage the ever growing plurality of subjects within Information Technology, the program offers four specializations:
- Communication Engineering and Media Technology
- Embedded Systems Engineering
- Computer Hardware/ Software Engineering
- Intelligent Methods for Test and Reliability
Graduates will find employment opportunities in research and development (R&D), technical management or business sectors of industrial companies around the globe or continue with their scientific qualification towards a doctoral degree.
As all Master's programs, this degree allows for pursuing a dissertation or further habilitation. For non-EU nationals it is the key for a work permit.
