Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Master of Science
Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, M.Sc.
The Master of Science Electrical Engineering and Information Technology degree programme is the second stage of the two-tier Bachelor’s/Master’s system and follows on directly from the B.Sc. (etit) . It leads to a Master of Science degree which is equivalent to the traditional title of “Diplom-Ingenieur”.
The research-related Master’s programme will extend your knowledge of the focus area you chose in your Bachelor’s programme. Application-oriented contents will constitute a core feature. By integrating students in ongoing research the programme’s emphasis on practical applications is increased. The following focus areas are available:
Automation Systems; Computer-Aided Electrodynamics; Computer Engineering; Electrical Power Engineering; Communication and Sensor Networks; Sensors, Actuators and Electronics.

The job opportunities for electrical engineers are extremely diverse. Possible fields are mechanical engineering, the aerospace industry, the automotive industry and medical engineering.
It is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
