Electrical and Computer Engineering (MA)

Department Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Management

Content

During the program, students deepen their subject area knowledge and get to know more working methods in engineering.

The program’s focuses are on communication technology, automation engineering, and the development of embedded microcontroller systems. Another concentration is on teaching soft skills.

A broad spectrum of elective modules allows students to specialize in these technologically and scientifically important sub-areas of electrical and computer engineering.

Course content and objectives

Graduates of the distance learning Master’s program in Electrical and Computer Engineering are excellently qualified for classic engineering professions. These are characterized by an extreme diversity in job opportunities. The professional fields range from planning to development, project work, production, inspections, quality assurance, initial operations, and sales of electrical components, equipment, machines, and systems. Engineers are desired experts in almost all areas and industries (electrical and electronics industry, energy technology, mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, medical technology, etc.).

The content of the degree problem is structured with modules. For successfully completed areas of teaching (modules), points are given according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The number of credits depends on the scope of a module and the workload required to complete it. The work done is therefore internationally comparable and recognized.
The details on the degree program and exam schedule are regulated in the program’s study regulations (Studienordnung, SO) and the examination regulations (Prüfungsordnung, PO). The degree program is offered with on a yearly schedule with studies starting in the winter semester.

Graduates are qualified to solve tasks in their professions using interdisciplinary scientific methods. With project-related work, the program also contributes to promoting personality development and conveys social, economic, and occupational skills. These additional skills enable graduates to work independently in additional fields of electrical and computer engineering, for example in research and development.

Requirements

  • Completed university degree in a bachelor's degree program in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Media Technology, Electrical Engineering (distance learning program)
