Information Systems Technology (iST)

Bachelor of Science

Informationssystemtechnik, B.Sc.


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.

Master's Programmes

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

Throughout the recent past, the demand for software developers has risen sharply in numerous industrial sectors and is expected to continue to do so. The spectrum of occupations is rather large and the job opportunities are correspondingly good. Information Systems Technology engineers may thus find work in automotive or mechanical engineering, in the fields of automation, communication, medical, or aerospace engineering. Furthermore, they can find employment in the household appliances industry or in the field of entertainment technology. Generally speaking, Information Systems Technology engineers are in demand wherever a coordinated interaction of hardware and software development is required. Due to their interdisciplinary education, they often coordinate the cooperation of colleagues from the classical engineering disciplines.
