The Master’s degree programme Information and Communications Engineering builds on and develops skills acquired in the course of a Bachelor’s degree, such as Information Technology, Electrical Engineering, Telematics, or Informatics. The Master’s degree is international in its orientation and is therefore taught entirely in English. In addition to offering broad fundamental knowledge, the branches of study allow students to gain in-depth qualifications for the development and use of modern information and communication technologies.
The branch of study Networks and Communications serves to provide an academic education and qualification for professional activities in the development and operation of modern information and communication technologies, which require the application of scientific insights and methods.
The course content encompasses both sound theoretical principles and practically relevant methodology. In the first instance, students are taught the principles and methodologies of mobile communications, signal processing, and wireless sensor networks. During the course of the degree programme, students can attend additional lectures, courses, and practical laboratory courses on mobile networks, pervasive computing, signal processing, measurement technology, robotics, image processing, and transportation telematics. The programme is further supplemented by a range of courses from technical informatics (e.g. system security, distributed systems), and technical mathematics (e.g. optimisation, stochastics).
