Master Electrical Engineering

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


The Bachelor's program is followed by the Master's program, in which the knowledge and skills acquired in the Bachelor's programme are supplemented by a further specialization. Furthermore, the fundamentals which are valid for a longer period of time are imparted here, with which the well-founded methodological basis of the university graduate laid in the Bachelor's programme is further expanded.

Upon successful completion of the Master's program, the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) is awarded.

The Master's program features specializations from which the student selects one of the offers:

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

The Master's program comprises six compulsory elective modules that have to be selected from a catalogue of core modules and five elective modules that have to be selected from a catalogue of supplementary modules. Furthermore, the study program includes one non-technical module from a university-wide catalogue of interdisciplinary key qualifications and an internship in the laboratories of the department's institutes (Master Lab Course). 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.

Doctorate (PhD) studies

Upon successful completion of the Master's program, students with the appropriate aptitude and interest have the opportunity to obtain a doctorate (PhD) position in electrical engineering and information technology at one of the institutes of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology or at other institutes of our university or at other universities.
