DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

This Master's program provides a broad understanding and knowledge in the fields of Communication and Information Technology, e.g. wireless communication systems. It also introduces non-technical subjects dealing with economics, legal and social issues and leads to the required skills for entry into the professions of Information and Communication Engineering. The institutes of the faculty rank among the top five in Germany with respect to research funds raised. They cooperate closely with national and international industry and other research centers on research projects involving the latest technology. Students are encouraged to participate in these projects. Funding opportunities are available in limited number.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Engineers from Communication and Information Technology are sought after in a wide range of fields including industrial and non-industrial research, planning, development, implementation, production, distribution, and maintenance of all types of information technology systems.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Ein erfolgreicher Abschluss des Studiums berechtigt zur Promotion.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Core lectures during the first three semesters are:

  • Advanced Digital Signal Processing
  • Channel Coding
  • Communication Networks
  • Electrodynamics
  • Language Course
  • Network Simulation
  • RF Frontend Devices and Circuits
  • Wireless Communications
  • Lab work

Elective courses can be chosen from a broad list of subjects, such as:

  • Antennas
  • Architectures and Design Methodologies of Integrated Digital Systems
  • Communication Technologies
  • Computational Intelligence in Modeling, Prediction and Signal Processing
  • Control Theory
  • Discrete Systems
  • Emerging Networking Concepts
  • Integrated Circuits
  • Internet of Things
  • Microsystems
  • Sustainable Communication Networks
  • and many more

In parallel to technical lectures some non-technical courses can be chosen from the list of general studies.

Course schedule

Compulsory, elective and optional

The programme comprises a set of core modules. These modules provide the necessary skills and expert knowledge in information and communication technologies. However, amongst the mandatory core modules is also a German language course for native speakers of languages other than German. One of the large core modules, covering half a semester, is the so-called project, in which students work on a specific research question, typically in one of the institutes of our faculty.

Electives cover a large part of the programme and can be selected from a broad range of topics to indivudually complement the core competences.

Major fields

Structure of the courses:

  • 3 semesters of lectures, exercises, seminars and laboratory courses
  • core modules and additional elective courses
  • six months master's thesis during semester 4

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

First degree (Bachelor of Science or Engineering, German FH Diploma) in Electrical Engineering or closely related field awarded by an internationally recognized university-level institution. Above average results in undergraduate studies. Certificate of adequate English language skills at level C1 (CEFR) (corresponding to TOEFL iBT with at least 95 scores or IELTS at least 7.0). Industrial experience is welcome but not a must.
