Electrical and Computer Engineering (M. Eng.)

Department of Electrical, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Course content and objectives

Students become familiar with knowledge, methods, and tools that allow them to work on complex technical and scientific tasks. Group work in the courses and projects during the program promote students’ personalities as well as their subject competence.

Graduates can work in research, development, and management in any company where software-intensive systems are developed. Besides companies involved with electrical and computer engineering, there are many other exciting possibilities, e.g. in the automobile industry, the aerospace and space industry, medical engineering, or media technology. And of course graduates of the master's degree program shape technologies of the future such as automation, communication, and the provision of energy on the basis of renewable energies.
One of the focuses on Anhalt University’s Köthen campus is the complex development of embedded microcontroller systems. Elective modules in the areas of systems engineering, media technology, and management enable a technical specialization. Individual supervision, interesting practical projects, and optimal conditions for studying provide excellent foundations for a successful career start.
