Master Electrical Engineering

Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.), period of study: 4 semesters


Building on a Bachelor's programme in Electrical Engineering, the Master's programme Electrical Engineering is offered. Upon successful completion of the Master's programme, the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) is awarded.

The Master's programme features specialisations from which the student selects one of the offers:

  • Smart Information Processing
  • Communication Systems
  • Nano- und Optoelectronics
  • Power-electronic Systems and Technologies
  • Smart Sensors
  • Electromagnetics and Applications

The Master's programme comprises elective modules, six of which have to be selected from a catalogue of elective modules, a module from a university-wide catalogue of interdisciplinary key qualifications and an internship in the laboratories of the department's institutes. In addition, a research project of approximately 3 months is planned, which can also be carried out in an industrial company. The Master's thesis, which lasts 6 months, is the final part of the Master's programme. In this Master's thesis the student should show that he can solve relevant problems in his field with the knowledge and skills acquired during his studies and his creativity as a prospective engineer.


Students who successfully complete the master’s study program (obtaining the title of Master of Science) at a university have the option to undertake doctoral (obtaining the title of Dr.‐Ing.) and post‐doctoral studies.
