- Communication Networks (ComNets)
- Department of Communications Engineering (ANT)
- RF & Microwave Engineering (HF)
Institute for Electrical Drives, Power Electronics and Devices (IALB)
Institute for Microsensors, Actuators and Systems (IMSAS)
Institute for Electromagnetic Theory and Microelectronics (ITEM)
Institute for Automation (IAT)
Study abroad unit(s)
Not explicitly defined; students have the opportunity to complete projects and their Master's thesis in industry research projects.
Internships as such are not a part of the curriculum, but the project and the Master's thesis can be completed in industry research projects.
Forms of assessment
Oral and written exams, seminar presentations
Project: report and presentation
Master's thesis: report and presentation
The goal of the course is to acquire a broad understanding and knowledge in the field of Communication and Information Technology, e.g. communications engineering, microwave technology, (wireless) communication networks, as well as an introduction to some non-technical subjects. Engineers from Communication and Information Technology are needed 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.
