The Master's degree programme in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is a research-oriented engineering degree programme. The aim is to form a focus within electrical engineering and information technology as well as to train and deepen subject areas based on scientific criteria that enable students to take on demanding management tasks in industry and to conduct independent research work with the aim of obtaining a doctorate and pursuing an academic career. Building on broad-based fundamental knowledge acquired in a relevant Bachelor's degree programme, students in the Master's degree programme have a high degree of independent design options open to them. This is supported by a range of content that covers the entire breadth of electrical engineering and information technology. Students can choose between the defined specialisations of automation technology, electrical power engineering, microsystems and semiconductor technology as well as information and communication technology. In addition to the acquisition of knowledge in the courses, self-study and the practical aspects of implementing knowledge are strongly encouraged in order to face the diverse tasks of application, research or teaching-related fields of activity and to master the frequently changing tasks of a highly qualified specialist and manager as well as a scientist.
