    You may also choose courses not on the list after consultation with the Master's Examination Board. Additionally, the programme contains a two-semester Master's seminar: in the first semester you will give a presentation about your background, your country, your home university, your Bachelor's work and/or working experience; in the second semester you will give a presentation and write a report on a topic of current research assigned by your mentor.Labs offer an opportunity for experimental work.
    In a project, a scientific assignment for half a semester is given. It consists of scientific work, a written report and an oral presentation.
    The Master's thesis completes the course.
    The compulsory courses and labs are: System Theory, Electrodynamics, Communication Technologies, Wireless Communication Technologies, Advanced Digital Signal Processing, Communication Networks: Systems and Theory, RF-Front-End Devices and Circuits for Wireless Communications, Antennas, Information and Communication Technology Lab I and II, German Language Course.
    Elective courses can be chosen from a list of topics: e.g. Channel Coding, Advanced Topics in Digital Communication, Dynamic Systems, Advanced Control Systems Lab, Control Theory, Real-Time Software Design, Digital Electronics and Microsystems Technology Design Techniques, Wireless Local Area Networks, Optoelectronic Components for Information Transmission and Sensors, Next Generation Mobile Communication Systems, Microwave Components and CAD Methods for Satellite and Mobile Communications, Fields and Waves, Stochastic Simulation.

    Educational organisation

    The programme is structured as three semesters of lectures, exercises, seminars, and laboratory courses, comprising compulsory modules, additional elective courses, a project and a Master's thesis.
    The following institutes and departments are responsible for the organisation of the programme:

    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

    Course objectives

    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.

    University requirements

    Program requirements

    Language requirements

    Certificate of adequate language proficiency (e.g., TOEFL with at least 550 points [or 213 points for CBT])
    (A Bachelor's degree taught in English can be accepted, but a language certificate is advisable.)

    Academic requirements

    Degree (four years of Bachelor of Science or Engineering, German FH-Diplom) in Electrical Engineering or a closely related field awarded by an internationally recognised university-level institution. Above average results in undergraduate studies. Industrial experience is welcome, but not a prerequisite.

    Enrolment fees

    An enrolment fee is charged at the beginning of every semester (includes a semester ticket for public transport). At present, it amounts to about 280 EUR and may be adjusted for following semesters.

    Costs of living

    Estimated monthly expenses for accommodation and other daily expenses (including health insurance and enrolment fee) are about 800 EUR.

    Job opportunities

    Students are encouraged to participate in research projects. Funding opportunities are available.

    Arrival support

    The course organisation team will support enrolled students on arrival in administrative and personal matters. Students from previous semesters volunteer to help new students on arrival through the "Students help Students" programme.

    Services and support for international students

    Service and support for all international students is organised by the International Office of the university through programmes such as "kompass". The course organisation team will provide a mentor from the faculty for each student.
