Information Systems Technology

Master of Science

Informationssystemtechnik, M.Sc.


Interconnected computing elements occur in almost all of today’s technological products. Because of this embedded nature of software within hardware, the borders between electrical engineering and computer science have become increasingly obsolete. The interdisciplinary field of Information Systems Technology (iST) is situated at this interface. The Master of Science degree in Information Systems Technology deals with the construction of complex microprocessor-driven information systems, which are required by the coordinated interaction between hardware and software development. For example, electrical communications engineering now requires mastery of a high degree of software complexity, and at the same time, the physical and electro-technical legality of their fields of operation are becoming more and more important in the planning phase of software systems.

Special Features Technical University of Darmstadt offers a Double Degree Programme at a partner university for this course.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the Technical University of Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at Technical University of Darmstadt

Because the core of the Master of Science degree in Information Systems Technology is the understanding, developing and researching of the complex interconnections between hardware and software, as those skills required by well-trained interdisciplinary engineers, graduates of the Master’s degree programme will have many and varied career choices. They can find positions in the automotive and mechanical engineering fields, in consumer entertainment electronics, and in the household electronics industry. Other fields include automation technology, communications, medical, and aerospace technology. The interdisciplinary character of this degree programme makes graduates especially good candidates for storage, management and coordination tasks.
