Today, more and more complex microprocessor-controlled information systems are built into – or “embedded in” – all kinds of technical products. This causes the classical borders of hardware and software to blur progressively.

Information Systems Technology takes this development into account. The subject has an interdisciplinary approach, or more precisely: It forms the interface between informatics, electrical engineering, and information technology.

Accordingly, the field of study Information Systems Technology (iST) is the result of a cooperation of two departments at the TU Darmstadt – the Department of Informatics and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

Please find detailed information on the programme in the module handbook.
