This course provides students with the expertise and methods they need for an independent professional career in specific fields within electrical engineering.
The Master's degree in Electrical Engineering builds on and extends existing knowledge in the field. You can freely choose and combine modules from the three advanced subjects of general electrical engineering, microelectronics and communication technology, and systems engineering, according to your own interests.
The international master's program Electrical Engineering gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge acquired during your Bachelor studies in one of the two major fields of study
- Power Engineering (Elektrische Energietechnik) or
- Information Technology (Informationstechnologie).
Both are internationally recognized domains with a steadily growing demand for graduates.
Power Engineering (Elektrische Energietechnik) involves the generation, transmission, conversion and application of electrical energy. Additional to the basics, this field includes the energy production from renewable sources, such as Bioenergy and wind turbines, construction, operation and control of electrical drive systems, and the associated high temperature electronics.
Information Technology (Informationstechnologie) is primarily concerned with the processing and transmission of digital information. It spans from digital signal processing and data transmission over circuit design, embedded and multi-processor systems up to mobile and wireless communication systems.
The international Master's program Electrical Engineering gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge aquired during your Bachelor studies in one of the two major fields of study:
- Electrical Power Engineering involves generation, transmission, conversion and application of electrical energy.
- Information Technology is primarily concerned with the procession and transmission of digital information.
It is possible to study the entire course in English. Some lectures are offered in German, but these are additional options. However, there are obligatory classes on the German language.
Procedure of study:
In the first two terms, students select modules in accordance to the selected major field of study. In the third term, the students further focus on their major field of study by selecting a specialization module. The fourth semester is reserved for the master thesis.
The university master's degree in the field of Electrical Engineering offers the best opportunities to get a conductive or research-based engineering job in Germany and over the world. The rapidly increasing demand for engineers in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science and information processing opens up prospects for the future with good job opportunities and excellent career opportunities.
